200 million shots in the first 100 days – Deadline

UPDATE, 11:34 p.m. PT: Joe Biden concluded his first official press conference, which lasted about an hour, telling the assembled reporters, “But folks, I’m going.”

Very quickly, Fox News grasped the fact that Biden had not called his White House correspondent Peter Doocy, who was in the East Room, even though the president answered questions from almost every other mainstream media.

“Peter Doocy didn’t get a question, which is also of note,” Fox News’s Martha MacCallum said, as The Chyron put it, “Biden signed 37 OCOMs but only holds one press conference. “

News organizations contacted at the press conference: Associated Press, PBS, The Washington Post, ABC News, Wall Street Journal, NBC News, CBS News, CNN, Bloomberg and Univision. A typical press conference features reporters from across the country, including a number of lesser-known media outlets, but Covid-19 restrictions have limited the number of correspondents allowed in the room.

During the campaign, Doocy asked Biden about his son Hunter. Earlier on Fox News, Dana Perino had suggested a “curved” question: “Also today we learned of another story involving your son Hunter, this time regarding a gun incident in 2018 in which your step-in-law daughter allegedly threw Hunter’s handgun in a trash can behind a grocery store behind a high school. In the end, the Secret Service intervened despite the fact that you were not under Secret Service protection at the time. What do you know about the involvement in the Hunter handgun case? “

A spokesperson for Biden says Politico that he has no knowledge of the involvement of the secret services.

UPDATE, 11:20 am PT: Joe Biden told reporters his plan was to run for re-election in 2024, before saying he “expected” him to be in the race.

At the Biden’s first official press conference since taking office, CNN’s Kaitlin Collins also urged him on whether he thought he would run against Donald Trump again.

Biden, however, rejected the initial focus on the upcoming presidential election, telling him, “I have no idea. I don’t know if there will be a Republican Party, do I?

PREVIOUSLY: President Joe Biden began his first official press conference by raising the target for his first 100 days: he announced 200 million vaccines, double the original estimate.

Speaking in the East Room to a drastically reduced number of reporters, around two dozen, all socially at least six feet apart, Biden said: “No other country has come close to what we do.”

He also said that over the next 35 days they will also meet a goal of reopening a majority of schools five days a week.

The press conference was Biden’s first official conference since taking office, as multiple media noted that he waited much longer than his predecessors. This sparked coverage of how the White House was handling every word of Biden carefully, given his propensity for verbal blunders, despite the president regularly answering questions from reporters at various events.

Anticipation for the event was evident when the networks covered the press conference with their star anchors, and Fox News even created a countdown. There was no shortage of recommended questions: Dana Perino and Bill Hemmer even came up with a list of questions they would ask, including: “Would you admit President Trump had the right strategy to finally stand up to Beijing?”

The first question came from Zeke Miller of The Associated Press and the current president of the White House Correspondents Association. He asked Biden how he would get his agenda to Congress given that no Republican voted for his Covid-19 relief plan.

“I was hired to solve problems, not to create a divide,” said Biden, who seeks major progress on immigration reform, gun reform and climate change.
