Press Laughs as Psaki Says Obama Doesn’t Give Himself Enough Credit on Foreign Policy
State Dept Spox Draws Laughs: Obama ‘Doesn’t Give Himself Enough Credit’ on Foreign Policy (Mediaite)
State Department spokesperson Jennifer Psaki drew laughs from the press corps on Thursday when she insisted that President Barack Obama “doesn’t give himself enough credit” for his foreign policy successes. When pressed by reporters in attendance on what those successes were, Psaki said that this administration’s level of “engagement” in global affairs was laudable.
“I would argue the president doesn’t give himself enough credit for what he’s done around the world, and that’s how the secretary feels too,” Psaki said.
