And the press still hates him for it. And the questions are far more hostile. I mean, Trump did an ABC News “town hall” in Philadelphia Tuesday night. Biden would never do such a thing with a conservative-leaning network.
According to the New York Post:
President Trump fielded 867 more questions from reporters than Joe Biden over the last two months.
The total number is five times the amount of queries that Biden answered between July 19 and Sept. 15, a review of the candidates’ interviews and briefings shows.
Trump answered a total of 1,141 questions from a Washington press corps which he maintains is openly hostile to his administration, while Biden responded to just 274 questions from local networks and liberal cable news channels like CNN and MSNBC.
During the week of Aug. 9, the president took 196 questions from journalists while Biden answered just 3.
Biden has repeatedly dodged questions from embeds covering his campaign and rejected “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace’s request for an interview in July after Trump sat for a hard-hitting interrogation with him.
