WATCH: VP Harris says government shutdown would be ‘completely irresponsible’

Vice President Kamala Harris called the potential of a government shutdown “completely irresponsible,” during a Tuesday interview with the PBS NewsHour’s Geoff Bennett at Morehouse College.

Harris’ comment comes as the country barrels toward a shutdown on Sunday if funding bills are not passed. Several hurdles remain as Republicans, who hold a narrow majority in the House, cannot find consensus on spending bills within their own party.

Harris was in Atlanta to speak with students at the HBCU as part of her ongoing “Fight for Our Freedoms College Tour.”
