In recent weeks the President has faced a number of crises and the coming weeks will set the stage for next year’s congressional elections. The fallout from the US’s exit from Afghanistan raised questions about Mr Biden while he also faced a crisis back home in the form of Hurricane Ida, which ravaged several cities including New York and New Jersey, and left 57 dead and four missing.

Repercussions are also ringing in the fallout after the Supreme Court did not respond to an emergency appeal by abortion providers, meaning Texas passed a law banning abortion from as early as six weeks.
