14/05/2022 02:21 PM

WASHINGTON, May 14 (Bernama) -- Jen Psaki left her role as the White House press secretary on Friday, reported Xinhua.

"I want to say thank you to the president and the first lady. They entrusted me in serving in this role for the last 15 months," Psaki said during her last briefing at the White House.

She also extended appreciation to the White House's press team, as well as to reporters in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room.

The appearance was Psaki's 224th White House briefing over her tenure that began the day Joe Biden was sworn in as US president in January 2021.

Karine Jean-Pierre is the new White House press secretary, becoming the first African American to hold the position.

As an assistant to the US president, the White House press secretary provides daily briefings for the media on the administration's activities and agenda.
