May 12, 2021 BBC Brazil

Tackling an ongoing pandemic, violent protests, and economic downturn, Joe Biden has surprised some with his actions so far during his presidency. But Ford School lecturer Jonathon Hanson says people shouldn't be. 

"I think maybe people underestimated Joe Biden as a politician. He is very capable of reading the political situation both within his party and nationally," Hanson said. "And, that means that he will change his position over time, yes. In the face of immense challenges in the United States and worldwide, Biden came to recognize the need to make big decisions, necessary to face these crises."
