President Joe Biden gave his first press conference on Thursday afternoon, speaking to reporters at the White House and taking questions from a select few reporters on his list.
Fox News' Peter Doocy, who has provided some of the toughest questions to Press Secretary Jen Psaki during the administration's first 65 days in office, was not on the list.
Doocy spoke to Fox after the press conference, to reveal the questions he would have asked had be been able to ask them.
Biden took questions from ten reporters during the first press conference of his presidency, including those from PBS, NBC, and Univision. Doocy showed his binder of research, and said that what he wanted to know about were Biden's massive economic reforms and what that means for the country.
"Nobody ever asked him about this big plan that he's got," Doocy said, "this big idea to completely transform the economy, to make it all green, that was something we were hoping to get on the board with."
Doocy said he was also interested in the origins of COVID in China. "There really were not a whole lot of questions about COVID, particularly the investigations into the origins of it, that is obviously something that he spends alot of time focusing on ways to move away from.
"But there is very little looking back at the origins of COVID, so we didn't get on the board with that, and nobody else asked about that. And to Chris' observation, I can add to it that in the room there were some aides, including Kate Bedingfield the communications director and Jen Psaki the press secretary, they were monitoring what he was saying, and it looked like they were checking their phones to get the instant reaction.
"But while he was up there, he was pretty much on his own. Usually, at the last few of these, and the last one I can think of like this, would have been in Wilmington, they had an aide off to the side with the list of reporters to call on. Today it was Biden with the list.
"And once they got through about an hour and twenty minutes, he was done. I'm not sure if that was the end of the list. If we were down, he did not make it that far," Doocy concluded.
The World Health Organization has been conducting research into that question, on the ground in Wuhan, and their findings have not yet been released. Shortly before they were due to release them, the White House announced that the release date would be pushed back. That information has yet to be subjected to public scrutiny.
Much of the press conference had to do with immigration, and Biden's policies as regards the crisis at the border. The current strategies, of allowing all unaccompanied children under 18 to cross the border and be housed, was addressed, as many have said that it has encouraged teens to come on their own, and parents to send their young children.
Biden also touched on questions the filibuster, working with Republican members of Congress, China, and foreign military engagements. Of his potential run for reelection, he said that he does expect to run, with Vice President Kamala Harris at his side.
