Joe Biden accidentally refers to Kamala Harris as ‘President’ during White House speech

Joe Biden accidentally referred to Kamala Harris as “President Harris” during a speech about the COVID vaccination rollout in the US.

He was delivering the speech with the Vice-President standing behind him when he made the gaffe on Thursday, the Washington Examiner reports.

“This is really important,” Biden said of the country’s immunisation effort.

“Because we believe in speed and efficiency must be matched with fairness and equity.

“Now, when President Harris took a virtual tour of a vaccination centre in Arizona not long ago, one of the nurses on that tour — injecting people, giving vaccinations – said that each shot was like administering a dose of hope.”

He paused briefly after saying “Harris” before continuing on.

It’s the second time the 78-year-old President has referred to Harris as the commander-in-chief.

Biden accidentally called Harris the “president-elect” before he became the 46th President of the United States.
