WH Press Secretary Jen Psaki: Even With Impeachment, Biden Can Reach ‘Unity’ With Trump Supporters

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told a reporter that President Joe Biden could still achieve “unity” with 74 million supporters of Donald Trump even while encouraging the Senate to move forward with an impeachment trial of the former president.

Ami magazine’s Jake Turx asked Psaki during the daily White House press briefing, “Does the president believe he can attain unity with the 74 million Trump voters while urging his allies in the Senate to hold an impeachment trial after his predecessor has already left office?”

Watch the exchange below.

Psaki: Biden ‘Is Speaking To All Of The American People’

Psaki responded, “Well, the president believes he was elected by 81 million Americans in part because they believed he was somebody who could help bring the country together, unify the country around addressing the crises we face.”

“And when he talks every day, nearly, about getting the pandemic under control, putting people back to work, he is not just speaking to people who voted for him,” she added.

Then Psaki addressed Biden’s approach to Trump supporters.

The press secretary said Biden, “is speaking to all of the American people, including the 74 million who didn’t vote for him.”

How many of those 74 million voters honestly feel like Biden is speaking for or looking out for them?

Psaki continued, “And certainly addressing the pandemic, making, insuring people that don’t worry about the health and safety of their grandparents, of their sisters and brothers, getting kids back to school — that is not a partisan position.”

Psaki Does Not Seem To See A Problem

She then insisted the president was standing up for all Americans.

“That is a leadership position, and one he’s taking because he wants to make sure he’s delivering for all the American people,” Psaki finished.

The Senate proceeded with impeachment plans on Tuesday after a motion by Sen. Rand Paul to dismiss the trial failed 55-45 with five Republicans crossing over to vote with the Democrats.

Paul had raised a point of order on the constitutionality of the trial, given that President Trump is already out of office and is now a private citizen.

  • I think that everyone there needs to put down the crack pipe. He has swiftly made the people that voted for him regret it. He has lost all but the sociopathic teachers union. The only unified people right now are the Mullah’s.

  • If you IMPEACH our rightful President, there will never be unity and we will fight you dirty Democrats all the way to GOD. Then He can take over and put you in the Lake of Burning Fire where you belong!!!

  • What evidence do you have for your "theory"? Perhaps you have contacts with our most "esteemed" and "credible" FBI management or our farcical "Intel Community"?

  • Joe Biden can bring unity by resigning and letting the puppetmasters disclose their identities as they tell Kamala who to pick as her VP!!!

  • This President is out of touch with reality if he really believes this. Stop wasting our tax money trying to impeach Trump.

  • The headline alone shows how totally-clueless Democrats are. I'll rot in hell before I'll even slightly consider "unity" with people who called every Republican and every Trump supporter/voter the most rotten names in the book. And, after 5+ years they still are viciously going after the only president worth a damn in my lifetime. They are vile, demented people and I will always oppose them at every turn.

  • Dementia can cause people to believe things that are simply not true. Slow Joe is a good example of that.
