Biden Created More Jobs in First Two Months Than Any President in History


Tomorrow, April 29th, will mark President Joe Biden’s 100th day in office. To commemorate this, the DFL Party will spend the week highlighting various accomplishments of the start of Biden’s presidency.

When President Biden took office, he did so in an economic recession brought on by the coronavirus pandemic and Donald Trump’s horrendous mismanagement of it. Thanks to his strong vaccination program and investment in the American people President Biden and his administration created more new jobs in the first two months than any president in history.

Additionally, the Biden administration extended – on a bipartisan basis – the loan program for small businesses hard hit by the pandemic and provided relief to 4 million small businesses struggling to keep their doors open.

DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement:

“President Joe Biden promised to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic and get our economy back on track and he’s already delivering. President Biden helped create more than a million jobs in his first two months in office, more than any other president in history, thanks to his strong vaccination program and investment in the American people.

“Under President Biden’s leadership, folks across the country getting back to work, small businesses are reopening their doors, and Americans’ lives are beginning to return to normal.”
