During an interview on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Trump blasted the way the press treated Biden during the news conference.

“Well, they were strange questions and they were asked in a very interesting way. It was like softballs, like you’re throwing softballs up. And it’s just a different world, nobody’s seen anything like it,” Trump said.


During the press conference, Biden took 31 questions from most of the major news networks, though none from Fox News, and covered a range of topics from China to immigration while also giving his thoughts on possibly ending the filibuster in the Senate.

The president also announced that his administration hopes to administer 200 million COVID-19 vaccine doses within the first 100 days of his presidency, an increase from his previous goal of 100 million which has been already been surpassed.

Trump highlighted Fox News not getting the chance to ask a question.

“It’s very sad to watch, actually. They’re feeding him questions, they’re easy questions. I noticed Peter Doocy didn’t get to ask a question today. And there could be no difficult questions, and they’re ready to rip the microphone away if somebody did get a little bit testy,” Trump said.

“Look, the whole thing is ridiculous, you know it and so do I,” he said.


Trump also discussed a number of other topics in the interview, including his inability to use social media since he has been removed from platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

“I almost like it better, I think I do like it better,” Trump said of issuing press releases instead of having social media platforms at his fingertips.

He also took a shot at Biden for the situation at the southern border, saying that current conditions for migrant children are "inhumane" and "dangerous."
