Joe Bidens eerste 100 dagen in functie (1)
April 30, 2021 - As President Joe Biden marks his first 100 days in office, he has delivered on a number of his biggest campaign pledges focused on Covid-19 response, but in some other issues he is grappling with how to enact promised reforms.
On the two most immediate challenges – ending the pandemic and fixing the economy – the new U.S. president has won victories in his first 100 days in office.
Congress passed a massive and far-reaching $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief and economic stimulus bill and appears poised to approve a jobs and infrastructure spending measure later this year, fulfilling key campaign promises by Biden.
Biden now confronts tough challenges in surging migration at the US’s southern border, mass shootings, and unmet demands from the Democratic Party’s progressive wing for higher taxes on the rich, police reform and racial justice.
Biden has so far posted 592 tweets in his first 100 days, which equates to around six tweets a day. Before Mr Trump’s account was permanently suspended in January 2021, he posted more than 26,000 tweets, averaging around 18 a day.
