In a Saturday video address, Ms. Harris made what was either a misstatement or a Freudian slip by referring to a potential “Harris administration.”
“A Harris administration together with Joe Biden as the President of the United States, the Biden-Harris administration, will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments for minority business owners,” she said in the five-minute statement to a small-business roundtable.
Her gaffe, first reported by the Arizona Republic, was quickly picked up by the Trump campaign.
The comment fueled speculation that Ms. Harris would have an outsized role in a Biden White House, given Mr. Biden’s age—he will be 78 on Nov. 20—and questions about his mental acuity.
