After the end of his first year as president, Biden faces difficulties and obstacles in leading America

The Associated Press published a report on the government performance in the first year of the American president, Joe Biden, which showed the president and his administration in a difficult position and below the promised level, knowing that in many aspects, the first year showed tangible progress for the president. and its management.

And the agency’s analysis, which was published on Sunday, January 16, 2022, showed that the United States came at a relatively late stage after some countries in terms of vaccination rates against the Corona virus, while economic growth increased, and inflation rates also increased, and the United States exited from Afghanistan, but in exciting forms controversy.

According to the data-enhanced analysis, the administration succeeded in passing laws on economic aid and other laws related to the pandemic, but the legislation aimed at promoting the president's social and climate projects shrank first before it stopped.

Some notable figures showed that the vaccination rate in the United States was 63.5 percent, which lags behind countries such as Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Norway, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

In terms of the economy, the Associated Press analysis shows that the unemployment rate fell to 3.9 percent, which represents a prominent point for Biden's first year, as the US president inherited an economy "infected" with the Corona virus and an unemployment rate of 6.4 percent before taking office.

Last year, employers added 6.4 million jobs to the economy, bringing unemployment well below the 4.6 percent rate that the Congressional Budget Office had been forecasting.

In contrast, inflation rose to 7 percent, its highest level in nearly 40 years. The price hike led some Americans to reject Biden's economic leadership.

Some prominent economists said the price hike was a sign that Biden's relief package was too big.

And Congress enacted a law that allocated “a trillion dollars”, is the cost of the infrastructure law for Biden, which approved the contribution of the Republican and Democratic parties as a compromise, as the president had requested the amount of $ 2.3 trillion initially, but he backed down after it became clear that members of his party stood against him, In order to reach an agreement.

The $1.8 trillion the administration had requested for a suite of social and climate initiatives was also undone by two prominent members of the president's Democratic party standing in the Senate, Senator Kristen Senama of Arizona and Senator Joe Mansion of West Virginia.

After twenty years of the American war in Afghanistan, the war in which the United States spent more than 2 trillion dollars, the United States withdrew from Afghanistan last August, in an embarrassing chaotic manner, accompanied by the death of 13 American soldiers. These soldiers lost their lives in a suicide bombing at the gate Kabul airport during the United States' evacuation of more than 124,000 people from Afghanistan. At least 169 Afghans were killed during the evacuations.

More than 2,460 American soldiers were killed in Afghanistan during the two-decade war, about 8,000 contractors (American mercenaries) were killed and more than 50,000 were wounded.

On immigration, a point of interest for President Biden and Democrats, and a strong point of contention with the Republican Party, 1.78 million immigrants crossed the border in the southwest of the United States, and the agency says immigrants began flowing across the border as soon as Biden became president. In the first four months of the new administration, border confrontations between US guards and immigrants recorded four times the number recorded in the last ten months of former President Donald Trump.

During the first year of Joe Biden's presidency, 20 severe natural and climate disasters occurred, each of which caused more than $1 billion in damage and killed a total of 688 people. These disasters included drought, two floods, 11 severe storms, four tropical cyclones, wildfires, and one winter storm.

During his first year, Biden visited nearly half of the 50 US states during his stay, and went to Pennsylvania seven times, and Michigan five times, while the first lady, Jill Biden, visited 35 states.

Biden confirmed 41 judges' appointments during his first year in office, more than any of his predecessors in the first year of their presidency. Of those judges, 80 percent are women, and 53 percent are of mixed ethnicity, according to the White House.

Biden ran into trouble in Congress where his candidates (for various positions, diplomatic and other positions) took an average of 103 days to get Senate approval to be installed, which is longer than the average for presidents in the early years of the previous six administrations and nearly three times longer than during the year The first is from Ronald Reagan's term, according to an analysis by the Partnership for Public Service's Presidential Transition Center.

Biden held nine press conferences during the past year, and the White House announced that Biden would hold his tenth press conference, on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, on the eve of the one-year anniversary of his presidency, which began on January 20, 2020, and six of these conferences were individually while there were three of which are common.

According to the agency, the president gave 22 media interviews during his first year, which is fewer press conferences than any of the last five presidents who preceded him on the site, during the same phase of their presidency.

Biden's approval rate and approval of his performance reached 44%, according to the agency, the same rate that was given to former President Donald Trump after the same period of his presidency.
