One year after the election of Joe Biden at the head of the United States can we already take stock of his mandate? Indeed, the country has an extremely short electoral cycle which forces each head of state to have a free hand almost only for the first year.
On November 5, the American president already succeeded in getting his $ 1,200 billion infrastructure bill passed. But his second plan, called Build Back Better, has not yet been approved in Congress.
So, will Joe Biden succeed in implementing all of his reform ambitions for America? As his popularity drops, should the US president fear the return of his ex-rival, Donald Trump, ready to take revenge in the next presidential election in 2024?
Piotr Smolar is the correspondent of World in Washington. In this episode of “L’Heure du Monde” he tells us about the challenges that Joe Biden must take up to convince both the Democratic Party, in the grip of deep dissension, and the American people, hit hard by inflation. .
