Since Aug. 31, Biden has answered half as many questions as Trump

Since Aug. 31, Biden has answered less than half as many questions from the press as Trump — 365 compared with 753 — according to a tally by the Trump campaign, which the Biden campaign didn’t dispute.

In that time, Biden has done approximately 35 local TV interviews, three national interviews and two town halls.

Biden went almost three months without taking questions from beat reporters.

Biden aides say one reason there’s less scrutiny of Biden in the general election is that he already was examined thoroughly in the primary election and over decades in public life.
