Psaki on gun control: ‘The politics are perplexing’

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki joined Yahoo News’ Julia Munslow, in a wide-ranging live interview streamed on TikTok. During the discussion, Psaki told Yahoo News that she agrees with Dr. Anthony Fauci’s assessment that gun violence in the United States is a “public health issue.”

“There’s no question it’s a public health emergency, it’s a public health crisis,” Psaki noted, adding that, as a parent of young children, the daily reports of mass shootings “impacts mothers and parents as well.”
