Congratulations and well wishes offered to Biden and Harris

Messages of congratulations have been sent as Joe Biden is sworn in as US President

Boris Johnson has congratulated Biden on being sworn in as the 46th president of the United States and said he looks forward to working with the Democratic successor to Donald Trump.

The Prime Minister tweeted: “Congratulations to @JoeBiden on being sworn in as President of the United States and to @KamalaHarris on her historic inauguration.

“America’s leadership is vital on the issues that matter to us all, from climate change to COVID, and I look forward to working with President Biden.”

First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, tweeted: “Warm congratulations and best wishes to President Biden and Vice President Harris. Scotland and the USA share long-standing bonds of friendship and co-operation.

“We look forward to building on these in the years ahead.”

Former US president Barack Obama tweeted to his former vice president: “Congratulations to my friend, President @JoeBiden!

“This is your time.”

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey tweeted: “Millions of people in America and around the world have a new sense of hope today as Joe Biden enters the White House.

“Perhaps the most important news is that Biden will reverse Donald Trump’s disastrous climate policies and bring the US back into the Paris Agreement.

“I look forward to the Biden Administration bringing America back to this global struggle, where Trump had failed to do so.

“I have called on the Prime Minister to invite President Biden for a state visit so we can work together to end the climate emergency.

“Today is an opportunity for us all to take the divisiveness, hate and intolerance out of politics, and work together to end the Covid, climate and economic crises.”

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab sent his congratulations to president-elect Joe Biden and vice president-elect Kamala Harris ahead of the “historic day” in Washington.

He said: “From climate change to trade and security, our two countries share a close bond and special relationship.

“We look forward to working with you on shared priorities as a force for good in the world.”
