Joe Biden is displaying himself to be an “absentee president” by not holding a solo press conference or scheduling an tackle to Congress regardless of having been in workplace for greater than six weeks, Joe Concha instructed “America Reports” Thursday.
“I look at what President Biden said on January 14th where he said, as president-elect, he would address Congress ‘next month’, as in February,” mentioned Concha, a Fox News contributor and The Hill media columnist. “And when White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about that, [she] said no promise was made that would happen, even though the president’s own words said they would.”
Biden’s instant predecessor, Donald Trump, held his first information convention on Feb. 16, 2017, whereas Barack Obama held his first information convention on Feb. 9, 2009.
In Biden’s first six weeks, Concha famous, he has enacted sweeping government actions just like the cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline undertaking.
“[With] all of these actions that the president is taking without having to be held accountable for them, I would think that a guy … who got 81 million votes — the most in U.S. history, Joe Biden, with the wind at his back, would take advantage and address the country during a time of crisis in terms of COVID, in terms of the economy, in terms of a rising China,” Concha mentioned, “and instead we have an absentee president at this point.”
Concha went on to recommend that Biden’s team “has zero confidence that this president can handle questions outside of handpicked reporters, which we have seen four or five questions and the questions are generally friendly unless the guy’s name is [Fox News White House correspondent] Peter Doocy, and then from there we don’t hear from him in any capacity when he speaking at events.”
Concha added that he personally want to hear Biden reply to questions on opening extra migrant holding services for younger border crossers, in addition to the very fact that 91% of his occasion’s $1.9 trillion spending invoice dubbed as COVID reduction would not fund healthcare-related expenditures.
“How do you justify that? I would be curious to see how the president answers those questions,” he mentioned. “I have a feeling we will not see that happen anytime soon because I don’t think there is the confidence there that he can do it.”
