It is a very disappointing fact that the first-ever Biden press conference missed the question of the health crisis of the public. A subject that has taken over the world. And also, because combating the crisis, was one of the major themes of the campaign of the American president.
Washington had clamored to have a Biden press conference for so many days. The reason for this was because it was the longest time any new American president has ever managed for so many days without a press conference. The things that were addressed in the Biden press conference lacked so many important subjects.
