Here’s what she said.
According to The Daily Wire, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to answer if Joe Biden thinks New York Governor Andrew Cuomo should resign.
“The President believes that every woman who’s come forward — there have now been six, I believe, who have come forward — deserves to have her voice heard, should be treated with respect, and should be able to tell her story,” Psaki said. “There also is an independent investigation that is ongoing, of course, in the state, with subpoena power overseen by the attorney general, and he certainly supports that moving forward. We, of course, have watched the news of a number of lawmakers call for that, but I don’t have any additional announcements from here.”
When asked if the White House still had “faith in Governor Cuomo” in terms of managing New York’s response to the pandemic, Psaki responded, “Well, we certainly don’t want anyone in the state of New York to be penalized, meaning not have access to vaccines, to vaccinators; not have access to funding from the Rescue Plan.”
“And certainly we will continue to work with a range of officials to get that done and get it implemented,” she concluded. “But the president and our COVID Response Team works with governors across the country, including Governor Cuomo, to implement these plans, and will continue to do that.” You can watch a clip of Psaki’s comments here.
