Watch Live: Final White House press briefing with Jen Psaki | USA Today

President Joe Biden on Thursday named Karine Jean-Pierre the new White House press secretary to replace Jen Psaki, who will leave the role at the end of next week.

Jean-Pierre, currently the White House’s principal deputy press secretary, will become the first Black woman and also first openly LGBTQ person to hold the high-profile position. Psaki’s last day will be on May 13.

Psaki, the most prominent face of the Biden administration since day one, has reportedly been in talks to join MSNBC. Her departure comes as Biden has languished under low approval ratings amid rising inflation and as Democrats face major headwinds to retain power in Congress.

“Karine not only brings the experience, talent and integrity needed for this difficult job,” Biden said in a statement, “but she will continue to lead the way in communicating about the work of the Biden-Harris Administration on behalf of the American people.”
