Campaign Response for US Election

Thank you for contacting me about the 2020 US Presidential election.

I extend my congratulations to Joe Biden on his election as President of the United States and to Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on her historic achievement. Their ticket, impressively, achieved more votes than any other in US history.

I note your concerns about President Trump's reaction to the election. As we have seen, the United States has a strong series of checks and balances within its political system which has, naturally, produced a result.

The United States is our most important ally and I look forward to the close work our two nations will do together on all our shared interests and priorities, from tackling Covid-19 to counter-terrorism, and collaborating closely through the UK's Presidencies of COP26 and the G7 next year. The friendship between the UK and US has always been a force for good in the world and I look forward to seeing that continue to grow.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
