White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki responded to AMI Magazine correspondent Jake Turx on Tuesday after the reporter claimed that “74 million Trump voters” are unhappy that Joe Biden is president.
“Does the president believe that he can attain unity with the 74 million Trump voters while urging allies in the Senate to hold an impeachment trial after his predecessor has already left office?” Turx asked.
Psaki reacted by reminding the reporter that 81 million people had voted for Biden.
“The president’s belief is that he was elected by 81 million Americans in part because they believed that he was somebody who could help bring the country together, unify the country around addressing the crises that we face,” Psaki explained.
The press secretary noted that Biden is “not just speaking to people who voted for him.”
“He’s speaking to all of the American people, including the 74 million who didn’t vote for him,” she added.
