Biden’s First 100 Days

A President's first 100 days in office is iconic in American politics. Biden's achievements and goals in this period will influence how his Presidency will be judged and remembered. After Biden was sworn in as President on 20 January 2021, he moved quickly to put his stamp on the government, issuing 17 Executive Orders on his first day. We will review what has happened since then, consider what the rest of the Biden presidency might look like and what it could mean for Australia.
