Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that President Joe Biden failed to uphold his promise to be “a president for all Americans” during his first 100 days in office.
McConnell highlighted moves by Biden and Democrats that have sparked Republican criticism.
These included Biden’s decision to shut down the Keystone XL pipeline, the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan (which was passed without a single Republican vote), the president’s decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and Democrats’ support for House Resolution 1, which aims to drastically change U.S. election laws.
“The first hundred days have left much to be desired,” McConnell said on the Senate Floor. “Over a few short months, the Biden administration seems to have given up on selling actual unity in favor of catnip for their liberal base, covered with a hefty coat of false advertising.”
