“The vice president’s trip includes a stop in Vietnam amid an Afghan crisis that many have compared to the fall of Saigon in 1975.”
As the situation in Afghanistan continues to worsen, the Biden administration has decided to send Kamala Harris on a trip to Asia which will include a stop in Vietnam.
Do you think she’ll visit Saigon?
Tyler O’Neil reports at FOX News:
White House doubles down on Harris’ Asia trip amid Afghan crisis: ‘Many interests around the world’
The White House doubled down on sending Vice President Kamala Harris to the Pacific amid the unfolding crisis in Afghanistan, telling Fox News that the United States “has many interests around the world.”
The vice president’s trip includes a stop in Vietnam amid an Afghan crisis that many have compared to the fall of Saigon in 1975.
“There are no planned changes to the Vice President’s travel,” a White House official told Fox News on Wednesday. “She is being briefed regularly on the situation in Afghanistan and she and her national security team are actively engaged in White House and interagency discussions. While in Southeast Asia, she will continue to be briefed regularly and will remain actively engaged.”
“Given our global leadership role, we can and we must manage developments in one region while simultaneously advancing our strategic interests in other regions on other issues,” the White House official added. “The United States has many interests around the world, and we are well-equipped to pursue them all at the same time.”

Joseph Curl of the Daily Wire draws another historical comparison:
Kamala Harris Trip To Vietnam Draws Hanoi Jane Comparison
The Biden administration apparently doesn’t know the meaning of the word “optics.”
With the Taliban takeover of Kabul, which prompted emergency flights out of Afghanistan, drawing comparisons to the fall of Saigon, Vice President Kamala Harris is heading to Vietnam.
“The prospect of Harris visiting Vietnam at this particular moment raised the possibility of the worst photo op for an American in that country since Jane Fonda donned a helmet there in 1972,” Fox News writes.
“When Harris arrives in Vietnam next Tuesday, after a stop in Singapore over the weekend, she will be the most senior Biden administration official to travel to Southeast Asia as the U.S. looks to support its allies in the region as they deal with China’s close proximity,” says Fox.
It really is like we’ve traveled back in time to the 1970s.DONATE
