Biden’s First 100 Days

Episode Summary

Welcome to UCL Uncovering Politics. Today we’re looking at Joe Biden’s first 100 days in the White House. What kind of presidency is this, and what is its impact likely to be?

Episode Notes

This week, we’re focusing on politics in the United States. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have been in office for a little over 100 days now. So how is it going? 

Has Biden been sleepy Joe? Has he pursued the path of moderation and coalition-building that has characterized so much of his long career? Or has he turned out much more of a radical than many expected? What role is being performed by Vice President Harris? How, meanwhile, have Republicans responded to their defeat? And just want is Donald Trump up to now that he is out of office and banned from Twitter?
