'If That's Trump, Tell Him I'm Busy': Ringing Phone Interrupts Biden Vaccine Remarks

President Joe Biden quipped about his predecessor when a ringing phone interrupted his press conference about new CDC guidance on vaccinating children on Wednesday afternoon, November 3.

During the press conference, which was streamed live to YouTube by the White House, an attendee’s phone began to ring while the president answered questions from the media.

Biden said, “If that’s Trump, tell him I’m busy.”

The president had been discussing Tuesday’s unanimous vote by the CDC to greenlight pediatric Pfizer-BioNTech doses for children between the ages of 5 and 11, a total of 28 million more eligible Americans, and presented a plan to introduce vaccination campaigns into schools.
