The GOP released a video on Twitter Tuesday titled, “Things that take less time than Joe Biden has gone without a press conference.”

According to the video, walking from Canada to Mexico, sailing around the world and taking six round trips to the moon take less than 49 days, the amount of days President Joe Biden has gone without a press conference.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said last week that Biden will hold a press conference “before the end of the month,” however, many are accusing President Biden of avoiding news conferences.

“Avoiding news conferences must not become a regular habit for Mr. Biden,” a Washington Post op-ed wrote. “He is the president, and Americans have every right to expect that he will regularly submit himself to substantial questioning.”

Each of Biden’s 15 most recent predecessors held a full news conference within their first 33 days in office.

President Donald Trump held his first solo press conference 27 days after taking office, while President Barack Obama held one 20 days into his presidency.

At a Tuesday visit by Biden to W.S. Jenks & Son, a hardware store in Washington D.C. that benefited from the temporary extension for smaller businesses of the Paycheck Protection Program, Biden aides did not allow the press to ask the President questions.

“Come on, press, you gotta go,” Biden aides said as the group of reporters were quickly removed the scene.

Biden did not answer any of the press’s questions, who were probing him regarding the immigration crisis at the border.

As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.

“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”

In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.

“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
