The White House has weighed in on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s resignation over sexual harassment allegations.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday that President Joe Biden did not speak with Cuomo before his resignation and Cuomo did not give the administration advance notice.
Biden and Cuomo were once close allies. But the president called for Cuomo to step down last week in response to an independent investigations’ findings.
Psaki said those views “stand” and that “this is a story about these courageous women who came forward.”
Psaki said that Biden has yet to speak to Kathy Hochul, who will take over in two weeks. But Psaki added that the administration looks forward to working with her.
