US Election: Canada Prime Minister, Trudeau congratulates Biden, Harris
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau congratulates America’s President-elect Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, after the Democrats candidate reached the 270 college electoral votes needed to declare him winner of the United States of America presidential election ahead of incumbent Donald Trump.
“Congratulations, @JoeBiden, and @KamalaHarris. Our two countries are close friends, partners, and allies. We share a relationship that’s unique on the world stage. I’m looking forward to working together and building on that with you both” reads a statement on the Canadian Prime Minister’s Twitter handle.
Joe Biden is projected to win the election and becomes the 46th president of United States of America according to CNN projection after crossing the benchmark 270 electoral college votes and also leading Trump with a wide margin across the states.
The former vice-president emergence means Democrats will be returning to power after the 2016 election loss that saw Donald Trump and Republican returns to power in America.
This year’s election is one of the keenly contested elections in the history of United States of America with Democrats and Republican candidates going head-to-head.
Trump, the incumbent president is likely to challenge the votes in some states where it’s unfavorable to him at the Supreme Court.
