Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Psaki says Biden knew of French displeasure over submarine deal” – below is their description.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki  pushed back against climate envoy John Kerry’s admission that President Biden had not been aware of the French ire brought on by the AUKUS submarine deal. ‘Of course he knew about the French being displeased,’ Psaki said, after Monday when Kerry said Biden ‘literally had not been aware’ of the fallout of the AUKUS submarine deal that caused France to lose a $90billion submarine contract. ‘He literally had not been aware of what had transpired,’ Kerry, who serves as President Biden’s climate envoy, told French broadcaster BFMTV. ‘I would encourage you to ask John Kerry specifically about the context of his comments,’ Psaki said Wednesday afternoon in a news briefing.
