Biden to hold press conference Wednesday at the White House

(CNN) President Joe Biden is set to hold a news conference marking his first year in office next Wednesday, January 19, White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced Friday.
"Next Wednesday, the President will hold a formal press conference at 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon," Psaki told reporters at the press briefing.
Psaki continued, "Look forward to seeing you there, and the President looks forward to speaking directly to the American people."
