Joe Biden’s top choice for National Security Adviser is no friend of Brexit. Recently, Joe Biden has been open and blunt when speaking about the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland as Britain exits out of the transition period.
Is this the same @JoeBiden who once described Britain’s position in Northern Ireland as “absolutely outrageous”. And who ' hit the headlines in the 1980s for his stand against the deportation of IRA suspects from the US to Britain' according to the Belfast Telegraph @BelTel https://t.co/SBDb5ZMKNJ— Alexander Stafford MP (@Alex_Stafford) September 16, 2020
Biden said: “We do not want a guarded border.
“We want to make sure we work too hard to get Ireland worked out.
“I’ve talked with the British prime minister; I’ve spoken with the Taoiseach; I’ve spoken with others, and I’ve spoken with the French.
“The idea of having the border north and south once again being closed, it’s just not right.
“We’ve just got to keep the border open.”
Previous to his press comments, Biden was cold to the UK. Biden said he wouldn’t be offering Britain a trade deal after Boris decided to draw up the internal market bill to stop EU meddling in UK affairs Post transition period.
Biden’s tone of language wasn’t much different to Obama’s in 2016, Obama threatened the UK would be at the back of the queue if the good people of Britain voted to leave the EU. At the time his comments enraged Britains, soon after we voted to leave the EU.
If Obama’s comments towards Britain weren’t bad enough, Biden’s national security adviser, Anthony Blinken described Britain leaving the EU as “the dog that caught the car and then the car goes into reverse and runs over the dog – it’s a total mess”.
Even though Biden hasn’t been confirmed by the electoral college as the winning candidate, Boris Johnson was one of the first world leaders to congratulated Joe Biden on becoming President elect.
