President Joe Biden reportedly dislikes U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, claiming racist treatment of former President Barack Obama.
Sarah Churchwell, the chair in public understanding of the humanities at the School of Advanced Studies, University of London, shared the view during the New Statesman’s Politics Live conference.

“I don’t think it’s just the case that Boris Johnson is distrusted by the administration,” Churchwell said.
“He is also actively disliked. […] He’s disliked because they perceive him to have been racist in his treatment of Obama. Both Biden and Kamala Harris feel that way about Boris Johnson, and that’s a problem,” she added.

The bold allegation is not coming from the prime minister or even from the U.S., however, but from elites in the U.K. who seem to be out to discredit their nation’s leader.
Johnson has instead recently defended America, even when given opportunities to speak out against the Biden administration and its weaknesses.
