President Joe Biden turned his back on reporters and walked away as they shouted questions on Friday following his remarks on a bleak September jobs report. 

Biden, speaking from the controversial set across the street from the White House, offered his signature "may God protect our troops" closing line before quickly exiting as reporters yelled questions over each other. 

Multiple voices were heard shouting, "Mr. President," while one reporter attempted to ask Biden what he would say to Americans – but the president was off the stage before he could finish his question. Fox News remained live on the empty stage for a few seconds before anchor Sandra Smith chimed in.
"Allowing a beat there to see if the president took any questions there from the White House as he wraps his remarks on the dismal September jobs report that stunned when it was released this morning," Smith told viewers.
