Kamala Harris shared on Twitter on Tuesday, March 9, that she spoke with Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg and that the two of them spoke on human rights and healthcare among other things. The call, however, took place in the absence of President Joe Biden and reports of the vice president taking multiple solo calls with world leaders has garnered the attention of the media and the public. 

Harris shared on Twitter, "I spoke with Norway’s Prime Minister @Erna_Solberg. We discussed the need to stand together on human rights, climate, defense, development, and healthcare — especially for women and girls. @POTUS and I are grateful for Norway's friendship and commitment to our shared values."

According to a readout of the call that took place, it was reported that Harris "affirmed her commitment to deepening the strong alliance between Norway and the United States."

The readout further stated, "The Vice President thanked the Prime Minister for Norway’s close security partnership with the United States and generous contributions to development and health security efforts around the world."

It was reported that the other world leaders who Harris had spoken to include French President Emanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as well as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Of them, President Joe Biden had reportedly placed a call to both the French President and the Canadian Prime Minister before Harris.

Her continued involvement with world leaders has indicated that the vice president will be actively involved in foreign policies as well. She had also taken part in the first bilateral meeting of the new administration between the US and Canada and this is something that Biden had not to be been afforded when he had worked as the vice president during Obama's administration.

In comparison to the previous administration, this is quite different as former President Donald Trump preferred to deal with world leaders himself and Mike Pence rarely had the opportunity to speak to world leaders. 

The public has also made a note of how this is much different and one Twitter user replied to Harris' tweet and said, "This marks the 7th global leader VP Kamala Harris has spoken to independent of President Biden." Another user asked, "Do VPs normally call foreign leaders or is this something only Ms Harris is doing....I don't recall pence or gore or cheney calling foreign leaders for these introductory calls." To this, one user responded, "Yea I remember Biden did this for Obama all the time. Biden is having Kamala do similar things that he did as Vice President."

One Twitter user stated, "Kamala Harris is the real president in action. Biden is just a prop for the Democratic Party's agenda.." Another said, "Kamala is there to make sure biden say anything. He's not the real president."

While the attention was on the fact that Harris continued to speak to world leaders alone, many responded to Harris regarding her call with Norway and asked if she had a chance to discuss state-funded healthcare and monthly checks handed to citizens during the pandemic.

Biden, on the other hand, is expected to get in touch with the members of the "Quad" — Australia, Japan and India — on Friday, March 12. He has already got in touch with leaders of Canada, Britain, France, Japan, Mexico, Germany and South Korea. He also spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
