Just a few months into the Joe Biden presidency and even White House pool reporters are asking press secretary Jen Psaki about the message being sent by calling Biden’s administration the Biden-Harris administration.

“Is there anything to be read into, sort of, the rebranding of the Biden administration’s — the Biden-Harris administration? Has,” the reporter asked.

“Is it a rebranding,” Psaki asked.

“Well, when you look on the website, it’s, you know, not — it’s Biden-Harris, and that’s not been necessarily the norm in the past. Is there any message being sent by that? Or what’s meant to be — what can be extrapolated from it?”

Psaki said Harris is an important partner.

“She’s the first in the room and the last in the room on most occasions, if she’s in town and not traveling around the country,” Psaki said. “It’s a reflection of the important role that she will play moving forward.”
