President Biden will hold his first formal news conference as president on Thursday.
The news conference is expected to touch on a wide array of issues, including the pandemic, the recently enacted $1.9 trillion stimulus package, immigration and — especially in the wake of deadly shootings in Georgia and Colorado — policies to reduce gun violence.
Thursday is Mr. Biden’s 64th day in office, which is unusually late for a president in modern times to hold his first formal news conference, though he has periodically answered questions from the news media in more informal settings.
When: 1:15 p.m. Eastern time
Where: The news conference will be in the East Room of the White House.
How to watch: A livestream will be available on The New York Times’s home page, and Times reporters will be covering it here in the New Washington briefing. It will also be streaming on whitehouse.gov/live.
