A screenshot of a tweet made by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy is being shared on social media claiming that the US Vice President Kamala Harris had not made any tweets regarding her recent meeting with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In the tweet, Subramanian Swamy pointed out VP Kamala Harris tweeted about her meeting with an African head of state but not regarding her earlier meeting with Narendra Modi. Sharing the screenshot of Kamala Harris’s tweet mentioning her meeting with the Zambian President, another post claims that Kamala Harris had given priority to Zambian President rather than Narendra Modi. On 23 September 2021, PM Narendra Modi met the first Indian-American Vice President Kamala Harris in Washington, marking the first in-person meeting of Modi and the highest-ranking Indian-American in US history. Let’s verify the claim made in the post.

Claim: US Vice President Kamala Harris tweeted regarding her meeting with Zambian President but ignored tweeting her meeting with Indian PM Narendra Modi.

Fact: US Vice President Kamala Harris did make a tweet mentioning her meeting with Narendra Modi, on 24 September 2021. VP Kamala Harris met Narendra Modi a day after she met Zambia President Hakainde Hichilema on 22 September 2021. This is the reason why Kamala Harris first tweeted regarding the meeting with Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema before tweeting about Narendra Modi’s meeting. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

When we searched to check whether US Vice President Kamala Harris had made any tweet regarding her meeting with the Indian PM Narendra Modi, we found that VP Kamala Harris had made a tweet on 24 September 2021, mentioning her meeting with PM Narendra Modi. Sharing the clip of her meeting with Modi, Kamala Harris tweeted, “I met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to reaffirm the strategic partnership between the United States and India. Working together, we can make progress on important global issues, from the COVID-19 pandemic, to the climate crisis, to strengthening and defending democracy”.

While it is true that US Vice President Kamala Harris first tweeted about her meeting with Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema, it is not true that Kamala Harris’s meeting with Narendra Modi had taken place before her meeting with the Zambian President. VP Kamala Harris met Narendra Modi on 23 September 2021, a day after she met Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema on 22 September 2021.  ‘The White House’ official press release briefing the US Vice President Kamala Harris’s meeting with Zambian President Hichilema and India PM Narendra Modi can be seen here and here.

Also, ‘The White House’ YouTube channel had published the live videos of Vice President Kamala Harris’s meetings with Hakainde Hichilema and Narendra Modi. They can be seen here and here. From all these pieces of evidence, it can be concluded that US Vice President Kamala Harris made a tweet regarding her recent meeting with Narendra Modi, and also, it is confirmed that Kamala Harris’s meeting with Zambian President took place a day before she met Narendra Modi.

To sum it up, US Vice President Kamala Harris did make a tweet mentioning her meeting with PM Narendra Modi.
