VICE President Kamala Harris made her first trip to the U.S. territory since taking office three years ago early on Friday afternoon when she landed in Puerto Rico.

"We're making a difference," Harris declared as he stood outside the hurricane-ravaged, federally-funded home of an octogenarian resident of Canóvanas.

The new house employs solar power and will be resilient to hurricanes in the future.

According to Harris's address, the Biden administration has made investments in businesses, entrepreneurs,

renewable energy initiatives totaling $140 billion in Puerto Rico.

She continued, "There's more work to be done."

Harris also joined artists and community leaders in San Juan to celebrate the island's cultural legacy and African influence on the 151st anniversary of the abolition of slavery

the Spanish colonial era.

The trip is intended to showcase President Joe Biden's "commitment to supporting Puerto Rico’s recovery"
