US Vice President Kamala Harris is once again angry over the Ukraine case after a mischievous tweet on his handle misrepresented that Ukraine was a member of the 39th North Atlantic Treaty Organization or NATO. Harris recently traveled to Europe, where he discussed the state of the Russian invasion with Polish President Andrzej Duda.
The tweet was published on Tuesday evening and deleted an hour later, but not before its screenshots began circulating on the Internet.
in now deleted tweetHarris said: “While I was in Poland, I met with US and Polish service members, thanking them for being with our NATO allies for freedom, peace and security. The United States is firm with the Ukrainian people in defending the NATO alliance.”
Second, almost the same tweetIt was published about an hour later: “While I was in Poland, I met with US and Polish counterparts, thanking them for being with NATO allies for freedom, peace and security.
The only difference between the two Twitter messages is the word “and”, which makes it clear that the US supports the alliance between Ukraine and NATO.
This is in line with the official transcript of Harris’s speech at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) meeting over the weekend.
The official transcript of the speech released by the White House contained the word “and” in order to clarify that the Vice President had inadvertently removed the word. The Harris account is managed by the DNC.
But before taking the message now and re-posting the correct one, several users were surprised by Harris.
“This is the vice president of the United States, he sent a defuse to what could have been World War III – including nuclear – and he doesn’t know the basic facts about the situation. This is just as dangerous as stupid,” tweeted former Navy SEAL Derrick Van Orden.
“Since when is Ukraine part of NATO?” Another user who posted the Recor Music handle.
Ukraine is not a member of NATO. Russia justified the invasion of Ukraine on February 24 by calling it a “special military operation” to prevent Ukraine from joining the Western military alliance.
