Joe Biden and Kamala Harris divide opinion amongst the American people, but that much is to be expected when one considers just how many people turned out to vote for Donald Trump.
The sheer volume of people who made their voice heard in the 2020 Presidential Election meant that a large group were bound to be upset with the results. Given the ignominy with which Trump dealt with his loss, his staunchest supporters can hardly be blamed for following suit.
Yet U.S. citizens are sleeping better with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in charge. That’s at least according to Vice President Harris herself.
Speaking only last month, the country’s first black and female vice president, said:
“Help is here. And hope is here. And things are looking up. Schools are reopening. Businesses are reopening. Grandparents are seeing their grandchildren in person.
“We are delivering real, real relief. And the American people are now able to breathe easier and sleep better.”
She continued: “And we are not done. The president and I are ready to keep going. And we are not going to take it slow, and we are not going to take it one step at a time. Nope. We are going to take a giant leap into the future.”
Many would be inclined to agree. Since Biden took office, new life has been breathed into the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and at the time of writing an estimated 135 million US citizens can count themselves as fully vaccinated.
Yet the Biden administration has faced certain criticisms, and will continue to do so virtually until the day he hands over the reigns to his successor – that’s just how politics work.
We’d love to know what you think to the Biden-Harris administration, and how they’re handling the issues facing them.
