Jean-Pierre: Biden’s Not Holding Press Conferences or Doing Interviews Because ‘We Have Found Some Non-Traditional Ways’
JEAN-PIERRE: "So, look, I hear the question and I know folks want to hear, you all, and it’s important, because when you all hear from the president, obviously so does the American people. So we get the importance of that and we’re always going to try to find ways, obviously outside of press conferences as well, to — for the president to be out there. And we have found some non-traditional ways. We think it’s important to try and meet the American people where they are, and so that is important as well, whether it’s a podcast that’s important or, you know, doing certain things that is not the norm. Obviously, the person — the president, I should say, takes your questions when he’s on the road more often than not, and he finds it important to have those conversations when you all are out there with him on the road, taking your questions, and so he does do that. As far as press conferences, we're going to try and make sure, when it’s the right time for those to happen, certainly we will do so. But it doesn’t mean that this president does not engage with with the press corps, the White House press corps, or with other reporters, journalists out there, who have different — different ways of communicating with the American people as well. We think that's important, too."
