45th President Donald J. Trump issued an email statement on Wednesday, wondering why 79-year-old Joe Biden “picks a reporter off a list” and then “reads the answer?”
Biden has held just nine news conferences since taking office on Jan. 20, 2021, and his only other solo appearance at the White House took place in March that year. Among Biden’s most recent predecessors, Donald Trump held 23 press conferences during his first year in office, Barack Obama held 27, George W. Bush held 19 and Bill Clinton held 45, according to records kept by political scientist Martha Kumar, who leads the White House Transition Project, New York Post reported.
“How come Biden picks a reporter off a list, in all cases softball questions, and then reads the answer?” 45th President Donald Trump asked in his statement from his “Save America” PAC.
“I would never have been allowed to get away with that, nor would I have to!” he added.
Former press secretary for the 45th President, also slammed the quality of the press conference. “Where are the follow-ups from reporters?” she tweeted. “Why was there no pushback to Biden saying ‘it’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion’ re Russia going into Ukraine? Where is the pushback on Biden claiming he ‘outperformed’ expectations? The list goes on All pleasantries, no pushback!” Video Below
