British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday denounced erstwhile ally Donald Trump after the president’s supporters stormed Congress in response to his incendiary rejection of the US election outcome.
“All my life America has stood for some essential issues: an thought of freedom and an thought of democracy,” the New York-born Johnson informed a information convention dedicated to Britain’s coronavirus disaster.
“In as far as he inspired folks to storm the Capitol and in as far as the president persistently has solid doubt on the end result of a free and honest election, I consider that was fully flawed,” he mentioned.
“And I unreservedly condemn encouraging folks to behave within the disgraceful method that they did within the Capitol,” the prime minister added.
“And all I can say is I am very happy that the president-elect (Joe Biden) has now been correctly confirmed and duly confirmed in workplace, and that democracy has prevailed.”
Johnson was the primary European chief to talk to Biden after his November election victory, regardless of Biden’s declare the populist prime minister was a “bodily and emotional clone” of Trump.
