Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked on Monday when President Joe Biden will address the White House press corps independently.
“By this time in their presidencies, both President Donald Trump and President Obama had held solo press conferences. Are there plans for President Biden to hold a solo press conference any time soon?” CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins asked.
“He will hold a solo press conference,” Psaki responded. “But I don’t have a date for you at this point in time.”
“This week?” Collins pressed.
Psaki answered, “Not this week, no.”

The White House press corps seemed unhappy with the answer, as another reporter asked if Biden will “get to pick the inquisitors himself.”
