The White House cuts a live feed off to stop Biden from taking questions.
During the Coronavirus pandemic, many Americans pay a lot more attention to their politics. President Joe Biden became the 46th US President. Within the first 100 days after taking office, traditionally the new US President will schedule and hold his first presidential press conference. The presidential press conference is a window for many Americans to get to know more about their elected Commander in Chief.
In this press conference, the President will provide updates on his executive orders and explain more in detail of his policies. The new US leader will respond to questions thrown at him. Reporters use this golden opportunity to ask as many questions as they want to bring more transparency between the new power in house with their citizen. The presidential press conference is the best opportunity for the public to find out everything about their new president including his hidden agendas. The public wants to know what the President is planning to do, what he is currently working on and what have been accomplished.
It has been 43 days since President Joe Biden took office and he has not held a first presidential press conference. No show on the Presidential press conference has raised many questions.
Fox News reported that “it took President Trump 28-days to face reporters, while President Obama took questions in 21 and President George W. Bush 34.”
Where is President Joe Biden? Why is he not taking questions and talking to the press? What is going on in the White House?
The White House Press Secretary said that they made the decision internally and there will be no presidential press conference until Biden’s 1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus bill is signed.
On March 4, 2021, President Joe Biden attended a virtual meeting with House Democrats from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. At the end of the speech, Biden said: “I’m happy to take questions, if that’s what I’m supposed to do, Nance. Whatever you want me to do.” Apparently referring to Nancy Pelosi.
The White House abruptly cut the feed.
