On Monday, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's traveling press corps will be allowed on her campaign plane, although it's been 272 days since she's held a press conference with the beat reporters, the New York Post reports.

Clinton will switch to a new, bigger plane to make room for the reporters along with Secret Service agents, campaign staff and the candidate herself. On Monday, she is scheduled to travel to events in Illinois and Ohio.

"I would go all the way to the end and not do a press conference," Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, told the Post. "I would do a s—load of interviews, and I would do interviews with (tough reporters)."

Clinton's running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, has defended Clinton by claiming she's always talking to reporters.

"You see Hillary take questions from reporters every day," Kaine said on "CBS This Morning." "She talks to the press everywhere she goes."

"I don't see what the massive difference is between a press conference and talking to the press everywhere you go," he continued. "She talks to the press a lot, and I've been with her when she's talked to the press."

Republican nominee Donald Trump has criticized Clinton for her lack of press conferences, but according to The Huffington Post, Trump himself has barred dozens of journalists from his own briefings and events.

Trump banned journalists from the Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, Politico and The Washington Post from obtaining press passes to his events and news conferences. During his trip to Mexico this week, he abandoned his press corps entirely, the second time he has left them behind for a last-minute campaign event, CNN Money reported.
