‘Cuddly’ Joe Biden accused of creating greater divisions post-Trump in blistering analysis


The 46th US President marked last week his first 100 days in office, a milestone used to measure the US leader’s success in the Oval Office. But according to one political commentator, Mr Biden was so far proving “divisive” like his predecessor.

Douglas Murray wrote in the Telegraph how Mr Biden has failed to appease the disunity created during the Trump years.

He wrote: “[…] the division in America which skyrocketed during the Trump presidency has not been mollified. Far from it.

“Biden may have run as a cuddly centrist, but he is governing as someone deeply attracted to the leftwards drift of the Democratic Party.”

He added: “America had four turbulent years under Trump, but Biden’s words and actions suggest he prefers victory over calm just as surely as his predecessor did.”

A recent Gallup poll suggested the public considers Mr Biden a more divisive President than Mr Trump after 100 days in office.

According to the survey, 94 percent of Democrats approved of Mr Biden’s actions, while only 11 percent of Republicans did.

Mr Trump received 87 percent approval ratings from Republicans and 12 percent from Democrats at the same stage.

During his speech to both Houses of Congress on Wednesday, Mr Biden explained his $2.3 trillion infrastructure bill and his $1.8 trillion American Families Plan to improve childcare and education.
