President Biden announced Thursday that Karine Jean-Pierre will replace Jen Psaki as White House press secretary beginning later this month.
The President announced that Jean-Pierre, who served as Senior Deputy Press Secretary, will also serve as Assistant to the President.
PSAki is expected to leave the White House on May 13.
“I am proud to announce that Karine Jean-Pierre will be the next White House press secretary,” the president said Thursday. “Karine not only brings the experience, talent, and integrity needed for this difficult job, but she will continue to lead the way in communicating the work of the Biden-Harris administration on behalf of the American people.”
Biden added, “Jill and I have known and respected Karine for a long time and she will be a strong voice speaking for me and this administration.”
The president then praised Psaki for “setting the standard for the return of decency, respect, and decorum to the White House briefing room.”
“I want to thank Jen for raising the bar, communicating directly and honestly with the American people, and keeping her sense of humor alive,” the president said. “I thank Jen for her service to the country and wish her the best as she moves forward.”
