Can't take them anywhere! VP Kamala Harris says U.S. has a 'strong alliance with NORTH Korea' - in another White House gaffe - 24 hours after President Biden tried to pick out dead congresswoman in crowd

  • Vice President Kamala Harris mixed up North and South Korea 
  • She touted the alliance the U.S. has with 'the Republican North Korea' during her visit to the DMZ during a four-day swing through Asia
  • The embarrassing gaffe came on the heels of Joe Biden asking a crowd to identify a decease congresswoman the day prior 
  • It also comes as North Korea launched yet another missile on Thursday amid concerns the communist country could conduct a nuclear test

Kamala Harris continued an embarrassing week for the White House by mistakenly touting the U.S. alliance with 'the Republic of North Korea' – just one day after President Joe Biden called out for a dead congresswoman at an event on ending hunger.

The vice president concluded her trip through Asia with a visit to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on Thursday where she made the gaffe confusing the communist North Korea with U.S. ally nation of South Korea.

'The United States shares a very important relationship, which is an alliance with the Republic of North Korea,' Harris said during a speech at the DMZ Thursday, intending to refer to the Republic of Korea, the official name of South Korea.

'It is an alliance that is strong and enduring,' she continued, not appearing to recognize her mistake.

A communications advisor for Texas Senator Ted Cruz called Harris a 'flat out moron' for her remarks. 

'I cannot state enough that the commitment of the United States to the defense of the Republic of Korea is iron-clad, and that we will do everything in our power to ensure that it has meaning in every way that the words suggest,' Harris added in her remarks. 

'In the South, we see a thriving democracy,' she added. 'In the North, we see a brutal dictatorship.'

Her remarks professing U.S. support for South Korea's defense came as North Korea launched yet another missile on Thursday in the face of the vice president's trip to Asia.

The mix up between the North and South Korean nations came on the heels of a disastrous clean-up by the White House to try and explain away Biden forgetting that Representative Jackie Walorski died in a car crash last month.

The stenographer's transcript for the vice president showed the word 'North' crossed out for her remarks despite Harris not correcting her mistake in real-time during the speech. This is common practice for the White House stenographers when fact-checking transcripts

Biden, 79, asked a crowd gathered Wednesday for the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health in Washington, D.C. where Walorski was located as he thanked lawmakers for their work on a plan to end hunger in the U.S. by 2030.

He interrupted his own remarks to ask: 'Jackie, are you here?'

'Where's Jackie? She must not be here,' Biden concluded.

The White House engaged in a confusing and nonsensical explanation for why Biden was looking for the late congresswoman, claiming she was 'at top of mind.'

Biden's Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted that it's 'not unusual' for people to say the names of deceased individuals when they are 'at top of mind,' a phrase she continued to repeat throughout her briefing Wednesday during questions from multiple outlets including CNN, CBS and The Washington Post.

Now, the vice president has made a gaffe within 24 hours of the president's mess up by confusing which country the U.S. has a 'strong alliance'.

Texas Representative Troy Nehls hopped on both Harris' mistake and the White House's excuse for Biden's gaffe in one tweet Thursday.

'Everything's fine!' he sarcastically wrote along with a video of the vice president. 'North Korea was just 'top of mind' for the Vice President.'

Harris capped her four-day trip to Asia with a stop at the Demilitarized Zone dividing the Korean Peninsula as she emphasized U.S. commitment to the security of its Asian allies in the face of an increasingly hostile North Korea.

The visit comes on the heels of North Korea's latest missile launches and amid concerns that the country may conduct a nuclear test, which would be the seventh since 2006 and first since 2017.

Harris' speech at the DMZ comes as North Korea conducted yet another missile test off its nation's eastern coast.

The communist nation fired two short-range ballistic missiles on Wednesday, while Harris was in Japan; fired one before she left Washington on Sunday; and yet another one off its east coast on Thursday, according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Harris described the North Korean missile launches as provocations meant to 'destabilize the region' and said the U.S. and South Korea remain committed to the 'complete denuclearization' of the North.

The launches contribute to a record level of missile testing this year that is intended to move North Korea closer to being acknowledged as a full-fledged nuclear power.

Visiting the DMZ has become something of a ritual for American leaders hoping to show their resolve to stand firm against aggression – Donald Trump traveled there during his presidency and met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

At the DMZ, Harris went to the top of a ridge, near guard towers and security cameras.

She looked through bulky binoculars as a South Korean officer pointed out military installations on the southern side.

An American officer pointed out some of the defenses along the military demarcation line, including barbed-wire fences and claymore mines. He said American soldiers regularly walk patrols along a path.

'It's so close,' Harris said.

She then visited one of a row of blue buildings that straddle the demarcation line, where an American officer explained how the buildings are still used to conduct negotiations with North Korea. Sometimes they pass messages back and forth and sometimes they use a megaphone, he said.

'That's high tech,' Harris joked, adding, 'We've stepped into history.'

'It's still going,' the colonel said.

Harris agreed. 'The past and present are happening every day.'

She then walked out of the building and up to the demarcation line. On the North Korean side, two figures dressed in what appeared to be hazmat suits peeked out from behind a curtain in a second-floor window. Then they disappeared back inside.

Earlier, Harris met with South Korean president Yoon Suk Yeol at his office in Seoul and reaffirmed the US commitment to defend the South with a full range of its military capabilities in the event of war, Yoon's office said.

They expressed concern over North Korea's threats of nuclear conflict and pledged an unspecified stronger response to major North Korean provocations, including a nuclear test.

Harris and Yoon were also expected to discuss expanding economic and technology partnerships and repairing recently strained ties between South Korea and Japan to strengthen their trilateral cooperation with Washington in the region.

Their meeting also touched on Taiwan, with both reaffirming their countries' support for 'peace and stability' in the Taiwan Strait, according to Yoon's office, which did not elaborate.

Harris' trip was organized so she could attend the state funeral of former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, but her itinerary was dominated by security concerns, a reflection of fears about China's growing power and North Korea's ramped-up testing activity.

In every meeting, Harris tried to lay to rest any fears that the United States was wavering in its commitment to protect its allies, describing American partnerships with South Korea and Japan as the 'linchpin' and 'cornerstone' of its defense strategy in Asia.

Yoon, who took office earlier this year, had anchored his election campaign with vows to deepen Seoul's economic and security partnership with Washington to navigate challenges posed by the North Korean threat and address potential supply chain risks caused by the pandemic, the US-China rivalry and Russia's war on Ukraine. But the alliance has been marked by tension recently.

South Koreans have decried a new law signed by US president Joe Biden that prevents electric cars built outside of North America from being eligible for US government subsidies, undermining the competitiveness of carmakers like Seoul-based Hyundai.

During their meeting, Harris told Yoon that Washington will try to address South Korean concerns as the law is implemented, Yoon's office said.

Scott Snyder, an analyst at the Council on Foreign Relations, said the dispute over electric vehicles has swiftly become a firestorm that US officials cannot ignore, although there may not be a simple solution.

'It's taking on a level of urgency that's making it into a political problem that requires management,' Snyder said. 'I don't know that it's going to be easy for the Biden administration to do that.'

After meeting Yoon, Harris held a roundtable with female leaders on gender equity issues.

Yoon has faced criticism for the lack of female representation in government and his downplaying of broader inequalities.

'If we want to strengthen democracy, we must pay attention to gender equity,' said Harris, who also raised the issue with Yoon.

There are indications North Korea may up its weapons demonstrations soon as it attempts to pressure Washington to accept it as a nuclear power.

South Korean officials said last week that they detected signs North Korea was preparing to test a ballistic missile system designed to be fired from submarines.

The US aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan was to train with South Korean and Japanese warships in waters near the Korean Peninsula on Friday in the countries' first trilateral anti-submarine exercises since 2017 to counter North Korean submarine threats, South Korea's navy said on Thursday.

US and South Korean officials also say North Korea is possibly gearing up for its first nuclear test since 2017. That test could come after China holds its Communist Party convention the week of October 16, but before the United States holds its midterm elections on November 8, according to Seoul's spy agency.

North Korea has punctuated its testing activity with repeated threats of nuclear conflict. Its rubber-stamp parliament this month authorised the preemptive use of nuclear weapons in a broad range of scenarios where its leadership comes under threat.

Nuclear diplomacy between the US and North Korea remains stalled since 2019 over disagreements on easing crippling US-led economic sanctions against the North in exchange for the North's disarmament steps.

LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps. Cuba followed immediately with a statement on behalf of 62 countries saying what happens in Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and dismissing all allegations as based on “political motivation” and “disinformation.” China’s U.N. Ambassador Zhang Jun spoke soon after, denouncing “the groundless accusations” and unfounded “lies” and accusing the United States and a few other unnamed signatories of the
