Psaki Defends Chinese Communist Party Talking Points, Says America Is Racist

During a press briefing on Friday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended UN Ambassador for the United States Linda Thomas-Greenfield’s comment that the US founding principles were, “woven with white supremacy,” despite not having heard the comment.

“The Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield, talking to a group on Wednesday, said that white supremacy is woven into our founding documents and principals. This statement is getting widely criticized as essentially parroting Chinese communist party talking points. So is the President going to remove her from her position as the representative before that body to promote United States values?” – question from reporter

“Is the president going to remove an African American woman with decades of experience in the foreign service who’s widely respected around the world from her position as ambassador to the UN? He is not. He is proud to have her in that position. She is not only qualified, he believed she is  exactly the right person in that role at this moment in time.” – Jen Psaki 

While Psaki owned not having heard the comments, she claimed that she did agree with them. When asked if the President thought our founding documents were racist, Pskai attempted to avoid the question.

“I would say that I will leave my comments to speak for themselves and certainly I think most people recognize the history of systemic racism in our country and she was speaking to that,” – Jen Psaki
