Due to the recent flare-up of "object shootdowns" and the FAA's decision to close parts of the airspace, Joe Biden is under increasing pressure to explain what is happening over the country's airspace.
U.S. fighter jets have shot down 3 objects over the past 3 days. NORAD and Pentagon officials told reporters Sunday night they won’t rule out more in the coming days.

4 aircraft have been shot down by the U.S. in the last 8 days. We only know what one of them was, the Chinese balloon. Might be time for the President to give Americans some answers.

The White House has not provided many details about the objects in the sky that Biden ordered to be shot down.
Three objects have been shot down just over the weekend, forcing airspace closures over regions of our country, and Americans are getting updates via third parties.
Where is the Biden White House? Why haven’t they briefed the public? https://t.co/HsLLSPx8i6

RELEASE THE GUN CAMERAS. Americans deserve nothing less than full transparency. https://t.co/J8VRfxVlm2

The Pentagon has also not provided helpful updates regarding the situation. Both Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill have expressed their frustration with the lack of information coming from the White House.
On Monday, Biden is not scheduled to make any public appearances. His press secretary, Jean-Pierre, will be briefing reporters later in the afternoon.
