Vice President Kamala Harris laughed out loud in response to a question on the influx of Ukrainian refugees to Poland during a Thursday joint press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda.
When asked about the refugee crisis following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and how the U.S. plans aid Europe with an unprepared immigration system, Harris gazed at Duda to answer the question after the two initially laughed to break the silence of the room.
Since neither Duda nor Harris had an immediate answer to the question posed, the vice president stated that “a friend in need is a friend indeed,” and then burst into laughter. (RELATED: ‘Not Today!’: Kamala Harris Cracks Up When Asked If She Will Visit The Border)

I am en route to Warsaw, Poland and later this week to Bucharest, Romania. This trip comes at an important moment as the United States continues to demonstrate unity with our NATO Allies and provide support to the people of Ukraine in response to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
