2020 United States election results, maps and analysis

When the referendum outcomes were revealed in 2016, Donald Trump hailed it as “a terrific thing”, whereas Mr Biden, who was receiving an honorary doctorate from Trinity college in Dublin at the time, stated “we ‘d have preferred a various result”.

That being said, as a pragmatist Mr Biden could seek to enhance relations with the UK as it stands rather than as he might want them to be, according to Charles Kupchan, Professor of International Affairs, Georgetown University.

Originally it was hoped that a quick offer could be done with the Trump administration.

In theory, Mr Trump and Mr Biden’s goals are similar because they both desire to protect and boost crucial United States markets like farming and pharmaceuticals overseas, however a modification in administration throughout the pond will decrease talks, says Christine McDaniel, Senior citizen Research fellow at George Mason University.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Boris Johnson said: ” There is far more that joins the government of this nation and federal government in Washington whenever, any phase, than divides us.”

Obviously, there’s still the thorny problem of Northern Ireland. Mr Biden’s team have actually made it clear that as the US was one of the initial guarantors of peace in Northern Ireland, there will be no trade offer if the Good Friday agreement is jeopardised.

Mr Johnson stated of a prospective trade offer: “I have actually never ever thought that this was going to be something that was going to be a total piece of cake under any U.S. administration.”

” I believe there’s a great chance we’ll do something,” he added.
