Despite his press team being unaware of it, President Biden insisted he pressed Chinese President Xi Jinping to be transparent about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Biden made the claim Wednesday in response to a question from The Post at just his second solo press briefing in a year — insisting the press staff, who have previously been asked the same question, weren’t aware of the key exchange because they weren’t in the room.
Biden called on The Post more than an hour into the event in the White House East Room and defended his handling of XI during the November summit.
