Lack of respect for a mother due to the epidemic ... criticism of Kamala wiped her hand after shaking hands with the President of Korea

The British newspaper "Daily Mail" said that US Vice President Kamala Harris was criticized for wiping her hand over her pants right after shaking hands with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Harris met President Moon Jae on Friday as part of US President Joe Biden's second personal interview with a foreign leader since taking office, as he reduced his official face-to-face meetings due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Footage circulating on Twitter since then shows Democrat Harris instantly wiping her hand after the duo ended their joint press conference.

One user wrote: "This is the Vice President of the United States of America? This is not only disrespectful, but it amounts to being" racist "if the person doing the act is a Republican .. Double standards in their best form."

Describing the latest move as an insult, he wrote, "Kamala Harris insults South Korean President Moon Jae-in by wiping her hand after shaking hands."

The newspaper explained that the footage was discussed on Sky News Australia, where host Rowan Dean commented, "If it was Donald Trump, can you imagine the anger that would have happened? It would have been the end of the world."

The two were speaking at a news conference after talks about North Korea, global health and the "root causes" of immigration to the United States from Central America, Harris later wrote on Twitter.

But others indicated that the event came amid the spread of the epidemic and was one of the first events to be held in the White House since Joe Biden took office without masks since the beginning of the epidemic, and it became unusual to shake hands in this way for fear of transmission.

Harris was fully vaccinated against Corona, and she got her second dose of Moderna in January.
