  • Donald Trump referred to Jen Psaki as "the woman with the really beautiful red hair."

  • Trump addressed reports Psaki was poised to step down as White House press secretary and join MSNBC.

  • Trump has a long record of commenting on women's appearances.

Former President Donald Trump at his rally in Michigan on Saturday referred to the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, as "the woman with the really beautiful red hair."

While complimenting her hair, Trump criticized Psaki for once joking about the Space Force, the US military branch set up by Trump.

"The woman with the really beautiful red hair, she laughed," he said. "And she was hit so hard by the military because they knew I was right. The military understood I was right."

The former president also addressed a report by Axios that Psaki planned to leave the White House this spring and was in talks to join MSNBC.

"You know she's going to MSDNC," Trump said, using his derogatory nickname for the cable-news network.

"They need a redhead. They don't have a redhead over there, so they need a redhead."

Psaki joining MSNBC would not be unusual, as most White House press secretaries over the past two decades moved on to a cable-news job, according to Axios.

When asked about the resignation rumors at a news briefing Friday, Psaki said she had "nothing to confirm" about her plans.

Trump has a long record of commenting on women's appearances, often publicly assessing the attractiveness of female celebrities and politicians.
