As President Trump battles voter fraud and tabulation irregularities discovered during last week’s election, many of Trump’s former allies are turning against him.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who previously positioned himself as one of Trump’s top international allies, just made it clear that he’s throwing Trump under the bus by acknowledging Democrat contender Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 election.
Johnson revealed on Tuesday that he’s already had a call with former Vice-President Joe Biden to discuss Biden’s plan for the next four years. Johnson called the conversation “refreshing” and referred to Trump as the “previous president,” despite the fact that the presidential race is far from settled.
One of the many merits of the excellent conversation I had yesterday with President-Elect Joe Biden was that we strongly agreed on the need for once again the United Kingdom and the United States to stand together to stick up for our values around the world – to stick up for human rights and stick up for free trade, to stick up for NATO Mr Speaker, and to work together in the fight against climate change.
“It was refreshing, if I may say, to have that conversation and I look forward to many more,” The British leader said, in an apparent dig at Donald Trump.
“it is the duty of all British prime ministers to have a good relationship with the White House,” said Johnson. “But I’m delighted to find the many areas in which the incoming Biden/Harris administration is able to make common cause with us.”
Johnson, like many other world and domestic leaders and public figures, has chosen to allow the media to coronate Joe Biden, despite evidence of election meddling in several key battleground states.
