White House won’t address GameStop controversy

For the third day in a row, the White House refused to respond to the growing GameStop controversy on Wall Street amid further market volatility.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was pressed by a reporter on why the White House was not weighing in on a “big story,” even as President Biden met with his economic team.

“I know it’s a big story,” Psaki said, “but our focus and our big story is getting the American people back to work,” she said.

Psaki directed reporters to statements by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
