WH Press Sec. Jen Psaki reveals why it’s always been the plan to eventually step down

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made news Thursday when she revealed that she plans on stepping down in the next year or so, and on CNN Tonight With Don Lemon, she explained why. Psaki said it’s always been the plan not to stay for the duration of Biden’s presidency, and she has two very good reasons for that.

“This was something I told colleagues and friends, and in my discussions with the amazing people in the Biden orbit, was part of the discussion early on. I'm so honored to serve this president, and at this moment in history to be a small part of rebuilding trust in government,” Psaki said. “But I also have two little kids who are preschoolers, and I know a lot of moms who watch your show who understand that. I don't want to miss a lot of moments.”
