White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said she will look to leave her position “about a year from now,” citing her small children as the reason for her eventual departure.
“I mean, when I talked to the inner circle of the Biden orbit about this, we talked about coming in and doing this job for a year, which was quite appealing to me for many reasons,” Psaki said on the Axe Files podcast.
“One, this is, what a moment in history. Right. To be a part of. It’s always true in the White House. But I think following Trump, especially if you can take the temperature down a little bit, that’s a cool thing to be a part of,” she added.
Psaki has a daughter going into kindergarten soon, and she said she doesn’t want to miss out on special moments with both of her kids. “She’s kind of a magical unicorn. And I don’t want to miss moments. I don’t want to miss things,” Psaki said.
During the Obama administration, Psaki held a number of communication roles, and she said she didn’t expect to come back for Biden.
