President Biden to meet with missing journalist's parents
On Monday, Biden met with the parents of Austin Tice, who was abducted in Syria ten years ago.
Biden paid tribute in his remarks to missing or detained journalists in his remarks at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner attended by Debra Tice on Saturday night. During the event, Biden also said he wanted to talk with the Tices about their son.
“After the president made those comments, obviously we went into action to work to set up the meeting,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday, adding that the White House has “been very closely engaged with the family.”
