President Biden's White House confirmed that Psaki will be leaving in the coming weeks, reportedly for her own show at MSNBC. Jean-Pierre will be responsible for the White House's daily press briefings. "Jean-Pierre, who has served as Psaki’s top deputy since the start of the administration, will immediately become the public face of the Biden White House and the first Black person to hold the high-profile job of delivering the president’s daily message and fielding questions from an often skeptical press corps," explains The Washington Post's Tyler Pager. "She will assume the top spokesperson role at time when the president faces economic and political headwinds, six months before midterm elections where Democrats face an uphill battle. If Republicans retake the House, as many in both parties expect, Jean-Pierre could face numerous questions about GOP investigations into sensitive topics, although the White House counsel’s office is bringing in another communications expert, Ian Sams, to handle such inquiries."
