President Joe Biden will hold a news conference Wednesday afternoon, the eve of the one-year anniversary of his inauguration.
The press conference comes as Biden tries to salvage his voting rights initiative and economic agenda, both of which lack the votes to move forward in the evenly divided Senate.
His administration faces a pandemic that continues despite the majority of adults being vaccinated and high inflation that has eroded public support for the president.
Biden has held just nine press conferences in his first year so far, significantly fewer than his past five predecessors. He has only done 22 interviews.
However, there have been at least 216 informal sessions in which he answered questions after making comments or while traveling and walking past a waiting group of reporters.
