Vice President Kamala Harris held a press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda this week in a three day trip across Europe to address the ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
During the press conference, Harris laughed when discussing the refugee crisis created by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, where millions of Ukrainians have been displaced by the conflict. She reportedly said ‘A friend in need is a friend indeed’ in response to the Polish President’s comments about the refugee crisis.
President Zelensky’s former Press Secretary, Iuliia Mendel, ripped Harris in a now deleted tweet saying ‘It would be a tragedy if this woman won the presidency,’
The Daily Mail Reports–
Volodymyr Zelensky‘s former press secretary tweeted then deleted a post on Thursday saying it would be a ‘tragedy’ if Vice President Kamala Harris were to one day be president after she laughed through questions at a press conference in Poland about the refugee crisis in Ukraine.
‘It would be a tragedy if this woman won the presidency,’ Iuliia Mendel, who served Zelensky’s administration from June 2019 until July 2021, wrote on Twitter before quickly deleting the post.
Mendel’s comments were in response to another tweet with a video showing Harris laughing when asked about the refugee crisis resulting from people displaced from Ukraine fleeing to neighboring countries and saying through giggles: ‘A friend in need is a friend indeed.’
The vice president held a joint press conference alongside Polish President Andrzej Duda regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine during her three-day trip through Eastern Europe.
The trip comes as Poland already took in upwards of 1.5 million refugees fleeing Ukraine in the 15 days since Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded.
