President Joe Biden hasn’t had a press conference. 

Obama held a Q&A with reporters on Day 20, Trump on Day 27. The Biden White House has found other ways for the president to get its message out.

Nearly halfway into his first 100 days, President Joe Biden has yet to personally hold a press briefing, the longest any president has waited to make himself broadly accessible to the media in decades.

Presidential press briefings have historically been one of the few forums where the commander-in-chief is open to direct questioning and scrutiny, shedding light on an administration’s thoughts outside official public statements.
