Press Sec. Psaki: ‘The President Would Not Have Nominated Neera Tanden If He Did Not Think She Would Be an Excellent OMB Director’
PSAKI: "Well, Kaitlin, the President would not have nominated her if he did not think she wouldn’t be an excellent OMB director. And he nominated her because she is qualified, because she is somebody who has a proven experience and record, as I outlined earlier, of working with different groups and organizations with different political beliefs. And because he believes that her own experience will contribute to taking a fresh perspective and a fresh approach to this position. So we simply just disagree with whether she’s the right person for the job with these senators."
