Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden has answered less than half of reporter questions than President Donald Trump has.
The Trump Campaign claims that Biden has answered 365 questions from reporters while Trump answered 753, which Axios says “the Biden campaign didn’t dispute.”
While Biden has participated in “approximately 35 local TV interviews, three national interviews, and two town halls,” he often declines to answer questions from the press on the campaign trail.
According to Axios, “Biden went almost three months without taking questions from beat reporters.”
When Biden finally does open the floor up to reporters, he is lobbed leading questions used to criticize Trump without answering any tough questions about his policies, stances, opinions, and an almost 50-year history in politics.
He has also explicitly refused to answer certain questions such as if he has intentions to pack the Supreme Court. Instead, he claims that voters “don’t deserve” to know his answer and that they will “know my answer once the election is over.”
In addition to his refusal to answer questions from reporters, Biden has also repeatedly taken days off of the campaign trail, including Wednesday after the New York Post dropped a bombshell report on his son, Hunter Biden.
BREAKING: Biden campaign calls a lid for the day

While Biden’s team claims that he devoted at least one day of his time off to prep for the first presidential debate, Biden’s campaign called a lid at least 11 days in the month of September, halting his public activities and availability for the entire day.
During his absence from the campaign trail, Trump spent the month traveling around the nation hosting rallies as well as managing his presidential duties including historic peace deals and nominating a Supreme Court justice.
