Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki took questions from reporters as to President Joe Biden's views on the reopening that so many states are embarking upon.

Psaki said that Biden encourages Americans to "sacrifice a little bit longer." Biden traveled to Camp David over the Easter holiday to spend time with family, just as so many Americans wanted to do.

"The President continues to urge Americans to be vigilant, and we expect he'll continue to do that today in his remarks. But over the weekend, we saw Americans traveling for the holiday weekend, we saw a totally packed baseball stadium in Texas yesterday. Basically, there are Americans across the country who are doing exactly what the President is telling them not to do," a reporter asked.

"Is the message, are Americans not hearing it, or are they hearing it and ignoring it?"

"I think the President recognizes that this has been a long and difficult journey for the American public. We've been, the country has been, shut down in one form or another for more than a year now. And people have missed birthday parties, weddings, baseball games, going out to restaurants," Psaki replied.

"It is difficult, it is hard, and what he's asking people to do is to sacrifice a little bit longer. And he will continue to make that case and make that argument."

"Now while we saw the baseball game as you noted and we certainly anticipate as the weather gets warmer that there will be a temptation, we've also seen communities where local mayors, businesses, have conveyed to their communities that we need to hang together, we need to remain vigilant, we need to wear masks and we will get through this together.

"So we are hopeful that that's what the majority of communities in this country will do," Psaki said.

Psaki did not acknowledge the President's travels, or his activities over the weekend.
