Biden Refers to Kamala Harris as ‘Vice President Trump’ in Press Conference

by  Misty Severi


President Joe Biden on Thursday mistakenly referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “Vice President Trump” while answering questions from reporters at a solo press conference.

The president, who spoke at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, is facing growing pressure to end his quest for another term in the White House, after a lackluster debate performance last week emphasized Biden’s age and mental capabilities. 

A Reuters reporter asked Biden what concerns he has about Harris replacing him on the presidential ticket, if he drops out of the race, but the president referred to Harris as his opponent former President Donald Trump instead.

“I wouldn’t have picked Vice President Trump to be vice president,” Biden said. “I think she was not qualified to be president. So let’s start there.”

The president also mistakenly referred to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as Russian President Vladimir Putin during the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit on Thursday.

“Look, guys, the idea anybody suggests that, that we haven’t had an incredibly successful conference. How many times did you hear in that conference?” Biden said when answering a question on the mix-up. “I know it sounds too self serving, but other leaders, heads of state in thanking me, saying, The reason we’re together is because of Biden, because Biden did the following.”
