Ed O’Keefe of CBS first asked Psaki, “What happened in the Oval Office when I was in the Oval Office yesterday trying to hear from the President and the Prime Minister?”
When Saki asked O’Keefe what “sides” he was referring to, O’Keefe “remembered how the British Prime Minister in the Oval Office called on British reporters, and American reporters told American presidents. We accompanied him when he tried to call. “
“Well, in that situation, the relationship with Britain and Prime Minister Johnson is very strong and I think we can go beyond that,” she replied. “He called an individual from his press without warning us of that intention in advance.”
The incident mentioned by O’Keefe occurred at the end of a bilateral meeting with President Joe Biden on Tuesday night. Following the meeting, Johnson answered questions from two British reporters buried in the town pool on Tuesday. However, as Biden began answering questions from US reporters, White House officials expelled the group from the room.
A group of reporters, led by White House Correspondents’ Association President Steven Portnoy, later went to Saki’s office to protest the exchange.
