This recognition should be well received in the British capital: after the change of power in the White House, Great Britain feared the traditional “special relationship” between the two states would deteriorate, as the relationship between British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the new government. The President of the United States was considered to be laden applies.
Johnson had no friendships with the US Democrats when he hinted in a newspaper article, during the election campaign before the 2016 Brexit referendum, that former President Barack Obama had a grudge against the former colonial power of Great Britain due to his Kenyan roots. Biden later referred to Johnson as a “physical and emotional clone” of his predecessor, Donald Trump.
