Vice President Kamala Harris had a week filled with gaffes, and it worsened on Friday when she seemed to mistakenly advocate for reducing the population in order to improve air and water quality.

During a speech at Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland, focused on the Inflation Reduction Act, Harris said, “When we invest in clean energy and electric vehicles and reduce population, more of our children can breathe clean air and drink clean water.”

The vice president’s intention was to say “pollution,” and her office clarified that she misspoke. The official transcript of the event shows that Harris meant to say that electric vehicles and clean energy would reduce pollution.

The gaffe occurred shortly after Harris attempted to explain artificial intelligence at a roundtable discussion with labor and civil rights leaders.

She stated, “I think the first part of this issue that should be articulated is AI is kind of a fancy thing. First of all, it’s two letters. It means artificial intelligence, but ultimately what it is, is it’s about machine learning.”
