Psaki said at the White House press conference on Monday, "The President nominated her because he believed she was tested and she is a leading policy expert. She ran a think tank in Washington that did a lot of work, including bipartisan Work. She won widespread support and unions to the US Chamber of Commerce for others. She rolled up her sleeves and got the job. She met more than 35 Senators, Democrats and Republicans. This is the process. Acknowledgments, people acknowledge She has two committee votes this week and we are working towards that and will continue to work towards her confirmation. "

The press secretary said the White House still sees a way to get her confirmation.

Any senator who uses Donald Trump's tandens tweets against them after four years has no credibility. So far, none of the objections to its confirmation has advanced any serious political argument to dispute its confirmation.

The White House needs a Republican if Senator Joe Manchin continues to oppose its endorsement. If they didn't have that vote or didn't believe they had a chance of getting that vote, Tanden's nomination would have already been drawn.

Joe Biden shows loyalty to his nominees and that he won't be pushed around by the screaming Senate.
