After being elected the next President and Vice President of the United States, world leaders, including the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, sent congratulations and best wishes to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. At the same time, many hoped that the United States would take action on a number of important issues, including climate change, which Donald Trump has avoided.
In multiple tweets, Prime Minister Modi congratulated newly elected US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on their victory. Namo noted Biden’s important role in strengthening Indo-US relations as Vice President during Barack Obama’s presidency. He wrote, “Congratulations @JoeBiden on your spectacular victory! As the VP, your contribution to strengthening Indo-US relations was critical and invaluable. I look forward to working closely together once again to take India-US relations to greater heights.“
Congratulating Kamala Harris, the Prime Minister wrote, “Heartiest congratulations @KamalaHarris ! Your success is pathbreaking, and a matter of immense pride not just for your chittis, but also for all Indian-Americans. I am confident that the vibrant India-US ties will get even stronger with your support and leadership.“
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was one of the first world leaders to send congratulatory messages after Joe Biden’s victory over Donald Trump in the US presidential election was confirmed. Congratulating the newly elected president and vice president, Trudeau tweeted, “Our two countries are close friends, partners and friends. We are partners in a fancy relationship on the international stage. I look forward to participating in constructive work with the two of you. “
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, known as a close friend of Trump, tweeted: America is our most important friend. We look forward to working with you to address common issues such as climate change, trade and security. “
Biden and Harris were greeted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Minister Heiko Moss. “We have no alternative to Atlantic coastal friendship,” Merkel said in her message.
French President Emmanuel Macron has congratulated Biden and Harris on their historic victory. He tweeted, ‘We have a lot to do to solve the current problem. Let’s work together. ‘
Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte congratulated Biden and Harris on Twitter and called for stronger Italy-US relations.
Notably, the way in which world leaders began to greet and congratulate Biden and Harris long before the official announcement was made, their disgust with the Trump era has become clear, and a glimmer of hope for the new US leadership.
