Tracking Biden’s First Year of Pledge Progress

WASHINGTON. During his first year in office, President Joe Biden took action on a number of his key campaign promises, from rebuilding U.S. alliances globally to distributing vaccines in America and around the world.

But others remain under development or subject to congressional decision. This is especially true of his promises to reform the nation’s immigration system, which has placed Biden caught between the demands of his Democratic base and Hispanic voters and the realities of a sharp influx of migrants to the US.

See how Biden feels about some of his key promises as he wraps up his first year:

COVID-19

Achieve a semblance of normalcy by Christmas 2021

Broken. Delta, and later Omicron variants, set new records for infections, outbreaks of hospitalizations, business closures, and shortages across the country during the holiday season.

Give Americans 1 billion home tests

In progress. In December, Biden pledged to provide 500 million rapid tests amid a surge in the highly contagious omicron variant, and last week announced plans to distribute another 500 million tests. The distribution site launches on Wednesday.

Get 100 million Americans vaccinated in the first 100 days and vaccinate 70% of the world’s population against COVID by September 2022.

In progress. Biden surpassed the domestic vaccination goal, but only about 61% of the world’s population received one dose.

It is safe to reopen most K-8 schools and leave them open

Mostly done. Schools have largely returned to face-to-face instruction, but the surge in omicrons has led to closures and other issues in several school districts across the country.

Pass a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 legislative relief package
