(TheRedAlertNews.com) – This week, Vice President Kamala Harris published a tweet that read the U.S. is supporting Ukraine “in defense of the NATO alliance.” The tweet has since been deleted.
Tweeting from her official @KamalaHarris account, Harris tweeted, “When I was in Poland, I met with U.S. and Polish service members, thanking them for standing with our NATO allies for freedom, peace, and security.”
She then ended the tweeting, stating, “The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people in defense of the NATO alliance.”
Ukraine, which is not a member of NATO, has been assisted by the NATO alliance since Russia has invaded the country.
However, this is not the first time Harris has made this blunder. She made a similar mistake when addressing the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) meeting in D.C.
While addressing attendees, Harris remarked, “Russia’s invasion threatens not just Ukraine’s democracy, it threatens democracy and security across Europe.” She then emphasized, “So I will say what I know we all say, and I will say over and over again: The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people in defense of the NATO alliance.”
The White House altered the remarks before publishing a transcript adding “[and]” making it seem Harris was touting the U.S.’s support of Ukraine and defense of NATO allies.
While the account is Harris’s official Twitter account, a spokesperson for Harris revealed the DNC controlled the account, referring all questions about the tweet to the DNC.
The DNC revealed the “and” was omitted by mistake but that a new tweet was published that included the conjunction.
The new version of the tweet was accompanied by the same image of Harris greeting U.S. and Polish service members published in the original tweet.
Discussing the ramifications of the tweet, former DIA intelligence officer and author of the book “Putin’s Playbook: Russia’s Secret Plan to Defeat America,” Rebekah Koffler, revealed that the tweet confirms Russia’s suspicions that ” Ukraine is de facto already halfway into NATO.”
This can be damning since Russian President Vladimir Putin has been adamant that Ukraine should not join NATO. With Koffler saying blocking Ukraine’s attempt at NATO membership is the primary reason Russia invaded the country.
