Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Checkyourfact.com: “FACT CHECK: Does This Photo Show Alexander Soros And Kamala Harris After ‘Their Final Interview In Biden’s VP Vetting Process’?”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

An image shared on Facebook over 300 times purportedly shows Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris with Alexander Soros, the son of billionaire George Soros, after “their final interview in Biden’s VP vetting process.”

Media reports do not mention Soros as being involved in the vetting process for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick. The image was taken and posted in March 2019, roughly a month before Biden even announced his campaign.

The screen grab of another Facebook post shows the younger Soros shaking hands with Harris while posing for a photo. The user in the screen grabbed post suggests in the caption that Soros and his father played a significant role in causing Biden to choose Harris as his running mate by claiming the photo shows Soros and Harris after “their final interview in Biden’s VP vetting process.”

“This was the moment,” Soros allegedly said, “when I decided she would be the pick. I told my dad and he agreed. The rest was just a formality.” (RELATED: Viral Image Attempts To Spread False Claims About George Soros)

Check Your Fact did not find any credible media outlets attributing the quote to Soros. News outlets that covered the vetting process for Biden’s running mate like USA Today and The Associated Press did not mention either member of the Soros family.
