A recent gesture by Vice President Kamala Harris is being criticized by a foreign nation as racist.
“China’s state-run Global Times newspaper accused Vice President Kamala Harris of ‘disrespect, arrogance, and possible discrimination’ on Tuesday after a video of her meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in showed her apparently wiping her hand on her clothes after shaking hands with Moon,” Breitbart News reported.
The Global Times is a propaganda outlet that speaks on behalf of the Chinese government.
As Breitbart reported, the Times did not mention the common backgrounds of Harris and Moon in its tirade against the vice president. “Kamala Harris is America’s first vice president of Asian descent,” Breitbart notes.
