Brandon Friday afternoon participated in the US-ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Special Summit in DC before departing for Delaware for another weekend vacation.
Brandon struggled through his remarks and at one point said, “John Kerry has forgotten more about climate security than anyone I know.”
Brandon also referred to Kamala Harris as “President Harris” in his meeting with the Southeast Asian leaders.
Brandon has done this many times.
“An Indo-Pacific that is free and open, stable and prosperous and resilient and secure is what we are all seeking,” Brandon said. “That’s why I asked President Harris to travel to the region last August and that’s why last October at our virtual summit, I announced $100 million to support for programs to strengthen US-ASEAN cooperation.”
