President Biden holds first solo press conference | USA TODAY

 

President Joe Biden is set to hold his first solo press conference from the White House on Thursday, his 64th day since taking office.

RELATED:

The president has taken questions from and interacted with reporters on other occasions, but his first press conference will be an arena for the media to ask pressing questions on the situation at the border, the coronavirus pandemic, recent gun violence and more.

All eyes will be on the president as he has the opportunity to strike a different tone with reporters than his predecessor, Donald Trump, who frequently sparred with the media and deemed them "the enemy of the people."

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Tuesday that Biden is "looking forward to the opportunity to engage with a free press."

    1. While watching the presser it took me 10 channels to find one that allowed comments and livechat

    2. Does this man even know how to “think” for himself? He loves to play the “blame game” with Trump when he can’t finish a sentence!

  1. Can’t wait for the Hodge Twins Youtube skit on this Press Conference. “Gonna be a good show, a Dammmm good show”

    1. @Binova Gurung did you like when the reporter asked Joe about gun control and he started rambling on about bridges? how about when he walked out from behind the podium while the reporters talking, with that lost stare on his face. Trump did a news conference everyday. Joe had to wait 65 days and he still couldn’t last an hour let them reporters down to the border Joe so we can see how bad it is

    2. Don’t forget your discount code “white privileged for 21%”. However, if you black you’re discount code is “sellout” and you only get 20%.

    1. Frankly Speaking, Trump’s Foreign Policy Was The BEST in the recent history of United States. Because of that, He was extremely Popular in India, Israel, & UAE.

      People over here are missing him.

    1. King George III: I know him that can’t be. That’s that little guy who spoke to me’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s
      successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor’s successor. All those years ago. What was it 85’

      You can count that is 44 successors to John Adams.

    1. @Max actually everyone around the world thinks they’re funny meanwhile only liberals not progressives, independents, conservatives or right wingers find this funny and everyone outside US is in dismay.

  2. The disparity between what he’s saying about the border and what the news is showing us about the border is vast. He’s a liar.

    1. En Vee he know’s exactly what’s going on at the border and his administration is working on it . No one is hiding or denying anything. He’s barely 2 months in. Look at the 4 years of failure during the last administration. That administration’s policies have set us back decades. Go insite an insurrection En Vee.

    2. @Python Programmer you don’t even believe that. He said 2 internally inconsistent border policy’s in the same speech. Also Do you really think they are going to be calling illegal family members and asking them “ are you his aunt?”. Do you really think illegals were “starving to death” in Mexico waiting for papers? Don’t be such a propagandist and lie just because it’s your guy up there

    3. @house rental542 guys like these make bernie sanders reddemable. Shows the average iq of biden supporters is woese than trump’s

  3. 19:24 reminds me of when I was in highschool and we had a substitute teacher who didn’t know the names of the students…

    1. There was a reason why Trump needed fact checkers. If Biden was lying, you would hear from a fact checker.

  4. Why did he start wondering off towards the end? Did his steroid shots start to wear off? He was ready to call it. Then again 120 years of public service can put a toll on anyone.

    1. @Jon Collins as if republicans are smart enough to comprehend anything that doesn’t result in them projecting and spewing out bullshit like you just did

    1. @c d I hope there isnt any applause at his ending I hope it’s just awkward silence then everybody leaves

    1. Well i was waiting for a cathartic enlightenment experience but you just ruined it. Now I’m drinking instead

  5. I love how “The most liked president in history” has overwhelming dislikes on all of his videos

    1. @Rosè- a -Bleu oh, you mean that little flu like thing going around? That thing that nobody cares about and pays no mind to? Big deal.

    2. @I Hate Democrats the “flu like thing” that has killed over 500,000 Americans? Yet you “patriots” seem to not care? just call yourselves what you actually are…loyalists

    3. @Rosè- a -Bleu Pelosi caught at a salon not wearing a mask, Newsom at a dinner party at the French Laundry not wearing a mask, Cuomo sending sick patients to live in senior centers, Whitmer also sending sick patients AND convicts to live with seniors (who everyone knows were at the greatest risk), Wendy Ullman caught on camera calling masks “political theater”… I could go on and onn about the democratic hypocrisy, they used covid for fear tactics to gain votes, they obviously didn’t actually believe it was dangerous. Don’t even try to argue it
