White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, announced that she will be resigning next year. On The Axe Files with CNN’s David Alexrod, 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.”
In January, Psaki replaced Kayleigh McEnany who served as Press Secretary under the Trump administration. If she is to resign, her replacement will arrive in January 2022.
In 2008, Psaki worked on former President Obama’s campaign and as deputy press secretary and deputy communications director in 2015. After her time with the Obama administration, Psaki worked for the State Department and CNN. When the Biden administration’s transition team offered her the position, she agreed to take it on for a year. The position was coveted by Psaki in 2014 when she was the runner-up for Press Secretary in Obama’s second term.
Psaki told Alexrod, “What a moment in history to be a part of. It’s always true in the White House, but following Trump, if you can take the temperature down a little bit, that’s a cool thing to be a part of.”
Her new family is one of her biggest reasons for handing her position to someone new. Psaki said she hopes to spend more time with her two young children. “I don’t want to miss moments. I don’t want to miss things, and I’m very mindful of that as well,” she said.
