Psaki Plans To Step Down As WH Press Secretary After Roughly a Year

Path 27

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is sharing her plans regarding her position in the Biden administration.

She revealed on the “The Axe Files” podcast that she spoke with the Biden transition team about a roughly one-year term.

Speaking with her former Obama White House colleague David Axelrod, Psaki said, “I think it’s going to be time for somebody else to have this job, in a year from now or about a year from now.”

Psaki served as the communications director during the Obama administration.

During her interview, she also spoke about the transition from the Trump White House to the Biden White House.

“We’re kind of still in recovery from the ‘Game of Thrones’ period of our history here that, you know, some of some of what I think the job is in this moment — and this won’t always be and certainly hasn’t been historically — is kind of reaffirming and restating like what the role of government is, right? And what the role of agencies are and what the role of policy processes are and how a bill becomes a law,” Psaki said.

Psaki holds near-daily press briefings at the White House.

A phrase Psaki has often used, saying she would be “circling back” with reporters on some questions, has made headlines.
