US President Joe Biden appoints a new press secretary. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is about to step down. Her successor is no stranger.
US President Joe Biden’s spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, will leave the White House in the middle of the month. She will be succeeded by former Vice President Karen-Jean-Pierre, the White House announced Thursday in Washington. “It’s great because acting is important,” Psaki said.
“Not only does Karen Jean-Pierre bring the experience, talent, and integrity required for this challenging task, but she will lead the way in delivering the work of the Biden-Harris administration on behalf of the American people,” Joe Biden said in a statement. .
It is not surprising that Psaki gave up her position: according to media reports, the 43-year-old is planning to move to MSNBC TV. Several TV stations have previously expressed interest in Saki. Psaki has not confirmed the reports, but she has not denied them either. “I have nothing to announce about my plans except, as I said, to sleep and read books,” Psaki asserted again.
Jean-Pierre has already worked with the Obama administration
As a spokeswoman for the president, Psaki has answered lengthy questions from the press almost daily at the White House since Biden took office in January last year. For this reason she is one of the prominent faces in the US government.
