Mexican officials said the decision was taken to avoid any friction between the Trump administration and the Mexican government.

The Mexican President said he had a good relationship with both President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, whom he said he had known for a decade.

“President Trump has been very respectful of us, and we have reached very good agreements, and we thank him because he has not interfered and has respected us,” López Obrador said.

Russian Federation:

The Russian Federation is yet to congratulate a winner of the US presidential election with media outlets speculating the nation is waiting for President Donald J Trump to concede defeat.

The People’s Republic of China:

Like, the Russian Federation, China is yet to congratulate a winner of the US Presidential election with media outlets and political analysts speculating the nation of over 1.3billion residents will hold off with any formal congratulations until the US President concedes the election.

Republic of Slovenia:

The Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa, who previously congratulated Trump for winning the election, has now suggested that the election should not be called until the courts have their say.

“It’s pretty clear that American people have elected Donald Trump and Mike Pence for four more years,” Janša tweeted on Wednesday.

Islamic Republic of Iran:

Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: “The situation in the US & what they themselves say about their elections is a spectacle! This is an example of the ugly face of liberal democracy in the US. Regardless of the outcome, one thing is absolutely clear, the definite political, civil, & moral decline of the US regime.”

The Republic of India:

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Biden’s contributions to the relationship between the U.S. and India were “critical and invaluable.” He also congratulated Harris — who will be the first Indian American to serve as vice president — on what he called a “pathbreaking” victory.

The French Republic:

French President Emmanuel Macron wrote on Twitter: “The Americans have chosen their President. Congratulations @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris! We have a lot to do to overcome today’s challenges. Let’s work together!”

Federal Republic of Germany:

The German Chancellor Angela Merkel said: “I look forward to future cooperation with President Biden,”

“Our transatlantic friendship is irreplaceable if we are to master the great challenges of our time.”

The Republic of Poland

Polish President Andrzej Duda, who is an ally of President Donald J Trump did congratulate Biden for a “successful presidential campaign” but seemed to hedge his bets by saying he would “await the nomination by the Electoral College.”

The Republic of Ireland:

Irish Taoiseach Micheál Martin said: “Joe Biden has been a true friend of this nation throughout his life and I look forward to working with him in the years ahead.”

To say the Republic of Irelands leadership will be thrilled with this decision would be an understatement.

Mr Martin said Joe Biden “is as Irish as you can get” having met him while Minister for Foreign Affairs.

When asked about Trump’s comments in which he is claiming the US Election is ‘rigged’ and ‘fraud’ Mr Martin said: “I think in the heat of the battle people say things.

“But when you look at the Republican Party it done quite well in some States where allegations have been made in relation to the presidential election and the Senate, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

“I watched and in fairness despite the pressure county by county the officials seemed to have worked very very hard to ensure people of the integrity of the election.”

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland:

Back home on British soil, Prime Minister Boris Johnson sent his congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, he wrote on social media: “Congratulations to Joe Biden on his election as President of the United States and Kamala Harris on her historic achievement. The U.S. is our most important ally and I look forward to working closely together on our shared priorities, from climate change to trade and security.”

Nigel Farage, Mr Trumps closes British ally Tweeted warning that Joe Biden “hates the UK”

Mr Farage wrote on Twitter: “As you can see from this clip, Biden hates the UK.

“The Conservatives had 4 years to do a trade deal with the USA and pro-UK President, and they failed.

“There is no chance now.”

The clip showed Mr Biden being asked a question by a member of British media who happened to be from the BBC, instead of giving any response Mr Biden questioned the journalist saying “The BBC? I’m Irish.”

Mr Farage also wrote on social media to call out the hypocrisy of the media’s reporting, he wrote: “Four years ago when Trump won, broadcasters showed scenes of people in shock and crying. Today, a Biden declaration shows coverage that would make you think Jesus had returned.”
