White House Press secretary Jen Psaki stated that the White House website refers to the “Biden-Harris” administration to emphasize the vice president’s “important role,” according to Fox News.
A reporter asked Psaki what message could be taken from the rebranding of the Biden administration.
“I would take from it that Vice President Harris is an important partner, she’s the first in the room and the last in the room on most occasions if she’s in town,” Psaki said.
Psaki added that it was a “reflection of the important role she will play moving forward.”
Biden and Harris are listed on the White House’s Twitter page and reads, “Welcome to the Biden-Harris White House!”
“Thousands of people work in the West Wing, the East Wing, the Cabinet, and the Executive Office of the President. Learn more about the people who carry out the priorities of the Biden-Harris administration.”
During the Trump administration, WhiteHouse.gov listed “The Administration.”
Under the Obama administration, the White House website headlined the page “The Administration.”

Last week, Biden designated Harris as his point person to address the surge in migrants at the southern border, serving as the diplomatic liaison in negotiations with Mexico and the “Northern Triangle” nations of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
Harris has also taken a number of solo calls with world leaders, just a few months into the new administration – a signal that she’ll engage deeply even in foreign policy, though her experience has been almost entirely in the domestic realm.
