Inadvertently, Vice President Kamala Harris praised the United States’s strong alliance and the “Republic of North Korea,” during a speech at The Demilitarized Zone on Korea Peninsula. This was likely to be referring to the “Republic of Korea,” also known as South Korea.
This slip-up occurred during Harris’s first visit at the DMZ on Thursday. Harris had pledged that the U.S. would back South Korea against the North Korean government. This was just the latest in a series of mistakes made by the vice president in her tenure in office. It provided fodder to her Republican critics as well as her operatives.
While President Joe Biden is well-known for his verbal missteps and Harris has many, Harris has headlines when she stumbles on awkward speech delivery or misspelling words.
