President of the United States, Joe Biden, has named Karine Jean-Pierre as his new top spokesperson. This is the first time a black, or openly gay, person has held the role.
44 years old Ms Jean-Pierre, has served as the administration’s principal deputy press secretary since Mr Biden was elected.
Jean-Pierre will replace outgoing 43 years old, press secretary Jen Psaki, in the top role at the end of next week.
The Press secretaries conduct daily news briefings with White House reporters, which makes the role high-profile.
