Joe Biden held his first press conference as President of the United States on Thursday, March 25, two months after taking office. The American leader made a promise: within a month, 200 million doses will have been injected into the inhabitants of his country.
If Donald Trump has, during his mandate, multiplied appearances in front of journalists, Joe Biden for his part waited before holding his first press conference. The US president spoke on Thursday March 25, just over two months after moving to the White House. An intervention essentially devoted to the fight against Covid-19 and during which the leader of the United States “congratulated on having achieved its objectives ahead of time”, says Loïc de La Mornais, correspondent for France Televisions in Washington.
Joe Biden even went further. “He promised that for the first 100 days of his mandate, in other words in a month, 200 million doses will have been administered to Americans, explains the journalist. It is a real success, logistically and scientifically, of the American war machine. “
