What would a Biden presidency mean for the UK and Brexit? | US Elections 2020

If the polls are to be believed, (and it would be right to be cautious) Joe Biden is on course to become the 46th President of the United States. But what might that mean for the UK and, crucially, Brexit? 

When the referendum results were announced in 2016, Donald Trump hailed it as “a great thing”, whereas Joe Biden, who was receiving an honorary doctorate from Trinity college in Dublin at the time, said “we’d have preferred a different outcome”. That being said, as a pragmatist Mr Biden could seek to strengthen relations with the UK as it stands rather than as he might wish them to be, according to Charles Kupchan, Professor of International Affairs, Georgetown University.
