Washington: US President Joe Biden on Thursday named Karine Jean-Pierre as the Assistant to the President and White House Press Secretary.

Karine will step into the Press Secretary role replacing Jen Psaki, who will depart from the White House on May 13.

Joe Biden said in a statement: " I am proud to announce that Karine Jean-Pierre will serve as the next White House Press Secretary."

“Karine not only brings the experience, talent and integrity needed for this difficult job, but she will continue to lead the way in communicating about the work of the Biden-Harris Administration on behalf of the American people. Jill and I have known and respected Karine a long time and she will be a strong voice speaking for me and this Administration," he said.

“Jen Psaki has set the standard for returning decency, respect and decorum to the White House Briefing Room. I want to say thank you to Jen for raising the bar, communicating directly and truthfully to the American people, and keeping her sense of humor while doing so. I thank Jen her service to the country, and wish her the very best as she moves forward," he said.

The White House also announced the return of Anita Dunn as a Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President.

Dunn rejoins the White House staff from her communications and political consulting firm SKDK, and will assist in advancing the President’s policy and communications objectives.

Karine Jean-Pierre is currently the Principal Deputy Press Secretary and Deputy Assistant to the President.
