Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has called into question Joe Biden‘s ability to lead as he claims that the president’s ‘decline’ is noticeable and demands that he hold a press conference.
President Biden has now gone 50 days – seven weeks – without holding a press briefing, far longer than any other president in the past 100 years, who have done so within their first 33 days in office.
Speaking on Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday night, Meadows compared Biden’s performance to that of his own ex-boss, former President Donald Trump, who he claims was capable of showing more focus in the early hours of the morning than the current president is during the day.
He also hit out at the fact that Vice President Kamala Harris has been taking calls with world leaders instead of Biden, after Ohio Congress man Jim Jordan told Hannity, ‘the American people deserve to no whose making those decisions’.
‘Jim’s absolutely right,’ Meadows responded. ‘President Trump was more focused at 1.00 am in the morning than Joe Biden is in the afternoon at 1.00 pm.
It comes as Biden has failed to schedule both a solo press Q&A and and address to to both houses of Congress, which his press office has said will be some time before the end of the month.
