Kamala Harris has spoken of the ‘Harris administration’ during a virtual roundtable before quickly clarifying Joe Biden will be president.
Discussing the Democrat’s plans for the economy the candidate for vice president said Saturday: ‘A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States.’
She quickly clarified: ‘The Biden-Harris administration will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments from minority business owners.’
Donald Trump has previously called Biden ‘a Trojan horse for socialism’. Vice President Mike Pence has said: ‘Joe Biden would be nothing more than a Trojan horse for the radical left.’ Harris’ slip up caused some online to suggest she had accidentally revealed the Democrat’s plans for her to be in charge.

Biden named California Sen. Harris as his running mate last month, making history by selecting the first Black woman to compete on a major party’s presidential ticket.
The 55-year-old first-term senator, who is also of South Asian descent, is one of the party’s most prominent figures. She quickly became a top contender for the No. 2 spot after her own White House campaign ended.
Trump, who had donated to her previous campaigns, argued she was ‘about the most liberal person in the U.S. Senate.’
‘I would have thought that Biden would have tried to stay away from that a little bit,’ he said.
Harris had been talking to small business owners in Arizona when she made the gaffe, appearing to suggest she was top of the ticket.
