In the short video, the Vice President can be seen wiping her hand on her pants after shaking hands with the Korean leader, some would say, in a completely "straightforward manner".
Some viewers have noted that the vice president's maneuver is because of the COVID-19 pandemic, though it can be clearly seen in the video that Harris was the one who first gave her hand to Moon, thus, suggesting that the fear of the pandemic is not the reason.
Furthermore, it has been verified that Harris has got both doses of Moderna's version of the COVID-19 vaccine, and has been completely vaccinated since January. In accordance with the new CDC guidelines, neither Harris nor Moon were wearing masks.
"Today, I met with Republic of Korea President Moon. We discussed North Korea, global health, and how we can address the root causes of migration from the Northern Triangle. We look forward to working with President Moon to address the challenges we face," tweeted Harris on Friday after the meeting, one of the first in-person meetings to have occurred involving the White House since President Joe Biden's inauguration.
Moon and Harris further discussed the subject of North Korea at length, as it is once again growing a pressing concern for America's ally. Moon further participated in a ceremony where 94-year-old Korean War veteran Ralph Puckett was given the esteemed Medal of Honor.
