The first issue of the newly-elected President of the United States, Joe Biden, was the deadly insurrection that took place at the Capitol, after four years of Donald Trump as President.
His presidency initiated one of the most difficult moments in the entire US history, as Americans were heavily divided and the country was dealing with a devastating pandemic.
Biden’s first year in the Oval Office was extremely challenging, but it didn’t deter him from setting lofty goals. In the first months of his presidency, Biden hit the ground with his big Covid-19 relief package and a heavy focus on the vaccine rollout.
Even if he enjoyed a strong approval rating, the honeymoon didn’t last for too long. By the end of spring, Biden’s numbers were dramatically dropping, and Biden had to face heavy criticism over his handling of the whole story of the Afghanistan withdrawal.
