Biden has not held a solo press conference after 54 days in office, the longest a president has gone in 100 years

President Biden hasn’t held a solo press conference 54 days into office.

The president addressed the nation last Thursday after signing the $1.9 trillion spending package and spoke about the country’s progress in defeating the coronavirus. However, he has gone more than seven weeks without holding a press conference, the longest for a president in nearly 100 years.

Every president since at least 1923 has held a press conference within 33 days of taking office, including Biden’s predecessors, former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama.
