White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday said that President Biden regularly speaks with former President  Obama, though she said no readouts of their calls will be provided.

"Has President Biden spoken to President Obama about how to pass the infrastructure bill? Has President Obama given him any advice on how to pass that bill?" Psaki was asked during Tuesday's press briefing at the White House.

"They speak regularly," Psaki responded. "They of course were president and vice president, but they are also friends and they share a bond of serving through eight years of the Obama-Biden administration, but also a personal friendship and kinship, and he speaks with him regularly. But we're not gonna read out those calls."
