Fox News’ Peter Doocy grilled Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki during the White House press conference Tuesday over the rise in violent crime across the country in the last year as well as comments made by St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones claiming that “more police doesn’t prevent crime.”

“The rise in violent crime compared to this time last year: homicide is up 113 percent in Minneapolis, it’s up 38 percent in Philly, up 22 percent in Chicago,” said Doocy. “Just to clarify, the White House’s position on this is that it’s mostly because of guns?”

Psaki responded by pushing the blame on the previous Trump administration.

“Well first, I’m not sure what data you’re looking at but I think what we can, most data that is out there shows that there’s actually been a rise in crime over the course of the last year, since the start of the pandemic which actually predates President Biden taking office to be totally clear,” said Psaki.

Doocy interjected by stating, “but he is president right now.”

In response, Psaki cited Biden’s request for job funding in the American Jobs Plan, $300 million of which she states went to “invigorate community policing.”

“You’re right Peter, and that’s why we’re focused on solutions here, and that’s why we proposed putting, we put $5 billion in the American Jobs Plan to help address community violent intervention programs, to help fund them,” said Psaki. “That’s also why we fought for funding for state and local governments in the rescue plan. Something many opposed. There was a lot of Republican opposition to that.”

The proposal would also cut almost 100 vacant police positions and would provide zero funding for the city’s medium-security jail known as “The Workhouse.”

St. Louis had 87 homicides per 100,000 residents in 2020, which is the worst murder rate in the nation, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported in January.

Psaki stated that while a number of steps need to be taken to rebuild trust, there would be no shortage of funding for local programs and initiatives.

“The President believes there’s a number of steps that need to be taken to rebuild trust in communities. Police reform is long outdated,” said Psaki. “He also believes that there needs to be funding for local programs and local initiatives, and there’s not going to be a shortage of funding under our watch.”

Just months into Biden’s term, Psaki planning to leave

Press Secretary Jen Psaki revealed Thursday that she will probably leave her current role at the White House in “about a year.” 

Psaki made  the prediction while talking with former Obama official David Axelrod for his podcast “The Axe Files.”

“You said at the beginning that you didn’t expect to be in this job forever, for four years and so on. Is that still your thought that at some point you’re going to step aw ay now?” Axelrod asked.

“I think it’s going to be time for somebody else to have this job in a year from now or about a year from now,” Psaki replied. 

“I mean, when I talked to the inner circle of the Biden orbit about this, we talked about coming in and doing this job for a year, which was quite appealing to me for many reasons,” Psaki added.”One, this is, what a moment in history. Right. To be a part of. It’s always true in the White House. But I think following Trump, especially if you can take the temperature down a little bit, that’s a cool thing to be a part of.”

White House roles typically see high turnover rates– President Trump cycled through four press secretaries in four years. 

Psaki cited her young children as reason for leaving. 

“I have little kids and I don’t want to miss time with them. And, you know, my daughter is going into kindergarten. I have a lot of years with her, but she’s kind of a magical unicorn. And I don’t want to miss moments. I don’t want to miss things,” the press secretary said. 

Before taking the top role in the White House press shop, Psaki served as deputy press secretary under President Obama in 2009, deputy communications director from 2009 to 2011 and spokesperson for the Department of State from 2013 to 2015 and as communications director from 2015 to 2017. From 2017 to 2020, she was a CNN contributor. 

Psaki never envisioned herself returning to the White House after her stint in the Obama administration, according to the podcast.
