Biden’s Last Minute Announcement Sends Press Corps Into Chaos

Published on

What are we to say? Obama has told everyone that Biden messes up everything.

President Joe Biden made an announcement regarding his upcoming trip to Vietnam during a private fundraising event conducted last month. This revelation shocked not only the event’s attendees, but also the president’s personnel. According to reports, the president’s overseas trip caused significant disruption and turmoil among the White House Press Corps, which is responsible for covering the president.

According to a report in Politico’s West Wing Playbook, the press corps’ reaction to the announcement of the trip, which would follow President Biden’s participation in the G20 conference in India, was described as a “logistical nightmare.”

Reporters who had been assigned to cover the G-20 were left with uncertain travel plans and a host of questions. Should they also plan to fly to Hanoi? Would it be before or after New Delhi? Would they have enough time to get a visa to Vietnam? And how would Biden make it back to the U.S. in time to commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks?

“This White House in particular has been very close to the vest on the scheduling until pretty close to departure,” lamented one White House correspondent.

The trip’s official announcement was made on August 28. Prior to that, however, the procedure required arranging an expensive charter flight due to the president’s tight schedule and the lack of commercial flights between Delhi and Hanoi. This arrangement required the editors of the correspondents traveling from New Delhi to Hanoi to give their sanction. The White House Correspondents’ Association was tasked with securing the requisite number of attendees after learning that President Biden would hold a news conference in Vietnam following the G20 summit. The association was successful in securing the necessary number of attendees.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan discussed the news conference aboard Air Force One throughout the press gaggle. Jean-Pierre explained why Hanoi was chosen as the location for the news conference, citing logistical considerations.

Q: Was the decision to move the press conference from India to Hanoi a result of issues around press freedom and press access in India?

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: I mean, I wouldn’t go that far. I think it’s just that it was easier… it was a logistical piece. It’s easier to do, it was just easier to do it in Vietnam. As you know, when the G… these types of summits happen, the G20 summits happen, it is all-consuming, all hands on deck. And it was just logistically easier to do it there.

And it wouldn’t — it wouldn’t have changed anything because it would have just been the president doing a solo press conference. So, instead of doing it in India, he’s going to be doing it in Hanoi.

We learned at the end of last month that a significant proportion of Democratic Party members believe that Joe Biden, who is eighty years old, should not seek reelection.

Having completed his second term at the age of 77, the current president has surpassed Ronald Reagan as the eldest person to hold the presidency.

Reagan surpassed the prior record established by Dwight Eisenhower, concluding his second term at the age of 70.

Over the course of more than two centuries of American history, it has been observed that the majority of presidents are in their 50s and 60s, with a few anomalies in their 40s.

77 percent of Democrats between the ages of 18 and 44, according to a recent study conducted by the Associated Press and NORC, believe that Joe Biden’s age makes him ineligible for a second term in office.

In contrast to any potential misunderstanding that this viewpoint is exclusive to the younger demographic, it is noteworthy that a substantial majority of individuals aged 60 or older, namely 71 percent, hold the same opinion regarding Biden.

In general, a majority of Democrats, specifically 69 percent, believe that the individual in question is too elderly to serve as the nation’s commander in chief due to their advanced age.

The aforementioned percentage rises to 77% when Republicans and independents are included.

Moreover, a substantial majority of respondents, 77 percent, believe that President Biden’s age is a greater concern than that of former President Donald Trump, who is also 77 years old.

Only 51 percent of respondents indicated that Donald Trump, the leading Republican candidate for the 2024 presidential election, is of an advanced age that would prevent him from serving a second term.

The survey was conducted between August 10 and August 14 via a combination of online and telephone interviews with 1,165 adult participants. The sampling error margin is 3.8 percentage points.
