PHOTOS from Joe Biden’s first press conference show he had a cheat sheet with facts and photos of reporters he planned to call on.
One photo shows the president holding a card labeled “infrastructure” with a list of facts in large font, though he did still flub one of those statistics.
In another photo, Biden, 78, is seen holding a paper with headshots of reporters, with some that he planned to take questions from circled and numbered.
One bullet point on his infrastructure facts sheet clearly reads, “The United States now ranks 13th globally in infrastructure quality — down from 5th place in 2002.”
However, he still flubbed that fact when he brought it up during the conference, according to the New York Post.
The president initially said the US ranked 85th globally, before correcting himself.
Thursday marked Biden’s first press conference since taking office in January. The event was limited to 25 reporters.
The wide-ranging conference touched on several different hot button issues — from immigration to whether Biden thought Donald Trump would try to run for president again in 2024.
Biden was slammed online for, at times, stumbling over his words — and for saying at one point during the conference that he joined the Senate “120 years ago,” which detractors derided as a bad joke.
However, Biden has been open about the fact that he occasionally stumbles over words because he has a stutter that has given him difficulty throughout his life.
After being mocked by Trump’s then press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in 2019, Biden shot back: “I’ve worked my whole life to overcome a stutter.
“And it’s my great honor to mentor kids who have experienced the same. It’s called empathy. Look it up. “
During Thursday’s conference, the president also spoke about the influx of illegal immigration attempts at the Texas border, and pointed out that there are more attempts to cross the border illegally every year in the spring.
When asked if he planned to run for president again in 2024, he said that he did, but would not commit totally, instead saying that is his “expectation.”
“I said, ‘That is my expectation,'” Biden said during the conference. “I’m a great respecter of fate.

“I’ve never been able to play four and a half years, three and a half years ahead for certain.”
When asked if he thought his former opponent Trump would attempt to run again in 2024, Biden said, “I don’t even think about it. I have no idea.”
Trump has suggested since leaving office that he may run again, or at least plans to be heavily involved in the Republican party.
