Fact Check: Did Kamala Harris Avoid a Question About Inflation?

A viral video clip appears to show Vice President Kamala Harris avoiding a question about how long Americans “should be bracing for this historic inflation and some unprecedented gas prices.”

The clip comes from a joint news conference Harris conducted with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, and it has been deceptively edited.

In response to the reporter’s question, the clip shows Harris take a long pause and then say: “Sure. In terms of the discussions that the President Iohannis and I had, they ranged in subject, including the issue of the Black Sea, and I’ll let him explain in more detail as he would like. But we are, again, fully aware and apprised because we are in constant communication with the president, with his administration here about the concerns that they have about the entire region and, frankly, the vulnerability. All you have to do is look at the map.”
