U.S. President Joe Biden waves as he departs after the 59th Presidential Inauguration in Washington, DC, U.S. January 20, 2021. Melina Mara/Pool via REUTERSU.S. presidents normally enjoy a “honeymoon” period with the electorate and Congress and try to notch big accomplishments in their first 100 days in office. Democrats control Congress by razor-thin margins, and will need Republican support in the Senate to pass the program. “One of the things I think could really get people together is vaccine distribution which is part of the $1.9 trillion,” Reed said. “So maybe we start there.”Biden is asking Congress for $415 billion to bolster the response to the virus and the roll out of COVID-19 vaccines.

REUTERS/Jim BourgSAN FRANCISCO (Reuters Breakingviews) - A nightmare awaits Joe Biden’s economic dream team. The Breakingviews Dream Team interactive tool scores a roster of candidates for government economic jobs. Working women, who were making progress in contributing to increases in average household wealth, have also been hit hard. Biden’s team can start on some of these issues, for instance by restoring services to address opioid addiction, such as counseling. Biden’s stimulus plan, announced last week, includes $130 billion to reopen schools and another $40 billion for childcare.

The post, made on Jan. 18 links to a YouTube video here uploaded that same day, entitled “PRESIDENT TRUMP SURPRISES NATIONAL GUARD IN DC”.

Many posts included the following caption: “Vendors who would identify themselves only as ‘Nah’ and ‘Stop asking me questions before you get your ass kicked’ sell merchandise near the Capitol. Getty does not identify the vendors, nor does it suggest that they said anything negative about Trump or his supporters. Getty provides the following caption: “Street vendors selling President Donald Trump memorabilia are seen on the sidewalk near the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021 in Washington, DC. The caption accompanying the image of two vendors selling Trump gear near the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was intended as satire but has since been shared out of context.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - For Joe Biden, becoming president of the United States was the realization of a decades-long quest, with two previous failed bids. On Wednesday, in becoming the 46th U.S. president, Biden took the helm of a nation with deep political divisions in the midst of a public health crisis that has battered the world’s largest economy. Biden opted not to run for president in 2016, only to watch Trump defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton. An effort by Trump to dig up dirt on Biden resulted in the first of two impeachments of Trump in the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives. Despite years of partisan hostilities in Washington, Biden has said he remains a believer in bipartisanship.

China has imposed sanctions on U.S. lawmakers in the past year, but targeting so many former and outgoing U.S. officials on inauguration day was an unusual expression of disdain. Pompeo, who unleashed a barrage of measures against China in his final weeks in office, announced that on Tuesday that the Trump administration had determined that China had committed “genocide and crimes against humanity” against Uighur Muslims.
