It took two months for the US president to agree to the exercise. A delay he was criticized for on the other side of the Atlantic
US President Joe Biden will hold his first press conference on March 25, more than two months after coming to power.
Since he took office on January 20, unlike Donald Trump and Barack Obama, he has never complied with this order at one point.
But his spokesman, Jen Zaki, announced that “President Biden will hold a formal press conference on Thursday afternoon, March 25.”
His reluctance to answer questions from journalists in this context that allows for revitalizing and sharp questions has been the subject of growing criticism. This has provoked attacks by some of his opponents who are trying to portray the president as insecure by his factions, for fear that he will multiply mistakes.
When asked several times in recent days why he refused to comply, Jen Saki showed his annoyance.
“He has participated in about 40 questions and answers since he arrived,” he replied, about informal and quick exchanges between the president and reporters at the Oval Office or during his rare visits.
