Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris (D.-Calif.) carefully kept their distance from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D.-N.Y.) when they met in Wilmington, Del., on Friday.
A photo tweeted out by Biden himself and a video clip of the meeting posted on YouTube by The Hill show Biden and Harris sitting at a set of tables that had been pushed together that allowed the group of four to remain far more than six feet apart.
“This afternoon, @KamalaHarris and I met with @SpeakerPelosi and @SenSchumer to discuss how we’ll get this virus under control, deliver much-needed relief, and build back better than before,” Biden said in a tweet that included a photo of the socially-distanced meeting.
“We’re getting right to work for the American people,” Biden said.
Schumer forwarded Biden’s tweet—and the photo.
“Joe Biden will be the next President,” Schumer said in his tweet.
“Kamala Harris will be the next Vice President,” he said.
“I was so proud to meet with them with Speaker Pelosi fighting for Americans in this crisis,” said Schumer.
