The newly appointed Biden spokeswoman, Karine Jean-Pierre, has been criticized for questioning, on multiple occasions, the integrity of the U.S. elections.
In December 2016, shortly after Hillary Clinton lost the race for the White House to former President Donald Trump, Jean-Pierre said on Twitter he had stolen the election.
“Stolen emails, stolen drone, stolen election …..welcome to the world of #unpresidented Trump,” the new official spokeswoman for the Biden Administration tweeted.
Four years later, in April 2020, Jean-Pierre claimed that Biran Kemp stole the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election, as he finished ahead of Democrat Stacey Abrams by just over 55,000 votes in that state’s closest election since 1966.
“Reminder: Brian Kemp stole the gubernatorial election from Georgians and Stacey Abrams,” Jean-Pierre tweeted then.
President Biden announced that Jean-Pierre would be replacing Jen Psaki as his Press Secretary as of Monday, May 16.
“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”, the president said, who assured that he had known Jean-Pierre for “a long time.”
