(FOX NEWS) – President Biden is set to hold his first formal press conference in months Wednesday afternoon — a day before the one-year anniversary of his inauguration.

The press conference will be the president’s 10th since taking office. Biden has held fewer press conferences than his five predecessors at the same point in their presidencies, having done six news conferences on his own and three jointly with foreign leaders.

He does, however, often take a handful of questions from reporters during his public appearances. And White House press secretary Jen Psaki takes the podium daily for regular press briefings, often with special appearances from administration officials.

In announcing the press conference, Psaki said the president “looks forward to speaking directly to the American people.”

As the president marks 12 months in office, his standing with Americans remains underwater.
