  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Psaki Vows to Uphold ‘Power of Truth’ in First White House Press Briefing” – below is their description.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki delivered the first news briefing of Joe Biden’s presidency Tuesday night, a once standard part of past administrations that was largely sidelined during the Trump era.

    Psaki told reporters she will bring truth and transparency back to the White House briefing room, a clear reference to her predecessors under President Donald Trump.

    The Trump administration took an openly combative tone with the news media. Sean Spicer, who was Trump’s first press secretary, set the tenor four years ago by claiming that the audience at Trump’s inauguration was the highest in history, despite photographic evidence to the contrary.

    Psaki also said President Biden’s first foreign leader call will be on Friday with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    She said Biden’s early calls will be “with partners and allies,” as “he feels it’s important to rebuild those relationships.”
