President Joe Biden will not be holding a news conference Friday afternoon, despite telling reporters he would be “holding a major press conference this afternoon.”
A White House spokesperson told CNN that Biden was “referring to a previously announced interview.”
MSNBC previously announced that Stephanie Ruhle will air a Biden interview at 10 p.m.
As reporters were being asked to leave a pool spray in the Roosevelt Room, Biden told them, “We’ve got a lot of work to do and I’m doing a major press conference this afternoon, but I love y’all but I’d like to ask you to leave so we can get down to business.”
