White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday said Biden and Obama “are not just former colleagues, I guess you call them, as president and vice president.”
“They also remain close friends and they talk regularly about a range of issues, from policy issues to bouncing ideas off of each other, to their families,” Psaki 말했다. “So they are in close touch, but we just don’t read out those specific calls.”
그녀는 덧붙였다: “We keep them private.”
Psaki was pressed, 그러나, on how regularly the two speak.
“That would be violating their friendship,” 그녀가 말했다. “The privacy of their friendship, I should say.”
Psaki was also asked whether Biden kept in close touch with other former presidents, to which she replied Obama “is the former president he is most frequently in touch with.”
“I’m not going to define it more, other than to say they engage, not just about important moments in our country, but also about their own families,” Psaki 말했다.
