Carney: Obama Will Take Questions From The Press Soon
"Look, the president will, I'm sure, be taking your questions in the near future," White House press secretary Jay Carney said at a Friday briefing when asked when President Obama will hold his next press conference with the media.
Obama became the first president in recent history not to hold a press conference following their reelection. Ronald Reagan held a presser the morning after his victory. Clinton held his a few days after his victory. And George W. Bush held one two days after winning a second term.
Obama held his last press conference in June at the G20, when he answered only six questions from three reporters. In August, Obama took questions from reporters in an impromptu visit to the briefing room.
UPDATE: Obama will take questions from the press oh Wednesday.
