President Joe Biden once again seemed to resort to a pre-approved reporter list before taking questions during the G-7 summit on Sunday.

“I’m going to get in trouble with staff if I don’t do this the right way,” Biden said before taking questions, according to Fox News. He then called on Jennifer Jacobs of Bloomberg.

Biden has been known to use a list when calling on reporters for questions. He referred to a list at his first press conference as president, which was held 65 days into his term — the longest delay of any president since World War I, the Daily Caller reported.

Biden also seemed to not remember the amount of days he has been in office.

“120 days, give me a break. Need time,” Biden replied when asked about U.S. sanctions on steel and aluminum left in place from the Trump administration amid concerns from European allies. Biden had been in office for 145 days at that time.
