As Joe Biden took the oath of office and became the 46th president of the United States, world leaders gave various reactions to the incoming administration, some with hope and ambitious plans.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu congratulated Biden and said he hoped to confront shared challenges including “the threat posed by Iran.”

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson started Wednesday’s question period in the U.K.’s House of Commons by congratulating Biden and saying he’s looking forward to working with him on common interests.

Johnson was joined by both the speaker of the house and the labour party opposition leader in congratulating Biden.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said the election of Joe Biden was a “victory of democracy over the far-right” following the violent attack on the U.S. Capital by Trump supporters on Jan. 6.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged Biden’s administration to return to the 2015 nuclear agreement and lift sanctions on Tehran, while welcoming the end of President Donald Trump’s era of “oppression and corruption.”

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen smiled as she congratulated Biden and Harris, saying “Europe has a friend in the White House,” during an EU Parliament address.

French President Emanuel Macron, Canadian Prime minister Justin Trudeau and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi all tweeted congratulating Biden and Harris on Inauguration Day.

  1. Why is their so many trump supporters who is brainwashed. The guy made worldwide national connection worse. One of the reseaon why US became so great. Yes you bow to him, when he has done nothing, but make 400k die of covid and making the nation debt of US 1% lower. While Obama did it 3-4% in his 1 election.

  2. Man o man…I was just saying to myself which leader is gonna be the first one looking for favors from this corrupt administration. Corruption is like making deals with the devil. In the end, the devil wants his payment..

  3. Pelosi & Biden are the face of modern day slavery. I speak for those who can’t. Those who thought they were improving family life by running to America. But Only to find the opposite upon arrival in America. Pelosi and Dems use these people in their modern day slavery adventure. Shame on you! Facebook, Amazon and Twitter shame on you for supporting this slavery act & may the Boycott!!! On you continue!

  4. The burden facing Americans is about to get greater. Taxes will increase, the cost of living will go up and 11 million illegal immigrants will become citizens. Liberal ideology is expensive, and the elite won't be paying for it.

    ​Do you use gasoline, heating oil, propane? Here's the genius of Biden's unity declaration: in his first decrees, a few hours into his reign, he killed thousands of jobs by halting the 875-mile long Keystone XL pipeline. A moronical act of economic vandalism to appease just a few people. 
    I hope you have saved up your money, you’re gonna need it. Today we start the decline into dark times. Biden also wants to give free medical care to 11 million illegal immigrants, and allow them a ‘path’ to citizenship. So they can return the present by gratefully giving their votes to Democrats. What a loon.
    Undoing every single thing a previous president did? Seems a little vindictive. Trump's policies worked better than any establishment policy I have ever seen.
    ​I learned from the Barack Obama administration that “representing you” means that you get to sit down and say nothing , while they, the Democratic politicians, do everything you don't want to be done. And so here we go. As Yogi Berra said, “This is deja vu all over again.”
    ​Biden also re-signed the Paris Climate Accord after President Trump pulled us out of it. This accord is simply the theft of American wealth. A money laundering scheme to steal taxpayer money and redistribute the proceeds to the political class and other deep-state actors while accomplishing nothing tangible. It allows our betters to virtue signal, and that is what they really want.

  5. To all you trump supporters and new world order fear mongers, this is not to your flavor as it depicts a world working towards unity for the sake of their own people. And judging from what has been said, it looks like America could be the worst offender a NWO of a new world order as all other nation are looking to welcome america back on the world stage. Fancy that aye. !!!! For me, im so pleased peace has been restored through biden harris combo. Next election, i look forward to a wrestling for power between a new leader of the republicans and Democrats. As long as trump remains off the cards that is

  6. Joe Biden is a LIAR and a CHEATER! He will not be a better president than Donald Trump. He is silencing the other side and taking control freedom speech and liberty like a communist leader. America, be prepared for the next 4 years! Wake up to the truth people!

  7. Kamala Harris once accused Joe Biden of being a racist who touched women inappropriately. Now, she’s his vice-President.

    In March 2019, Lucy Flores, a former state lawmaker from Nevada, accused Biden of inappropriate touching and of kissing her head at a campaign event. Following that, six other women came forward to share stories of unwanted touching by Biden.

    In April 2019, Harris said she believed the women who said they felt uncomfortable after Biden touched them.

    "I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it," Harris said.

    Democrats, your president is a sexual predator. I wonder will the Tara Reade rape allegation get dismissed by all these Chuck Taylor, pearl wearing black women who have a problem with Mike Tyson, Tupac, R. Kelly, Pill Cosby, Donald Trump, Nate Parker and other men convicted of Rape.

    I wonder how many men Kamala prosecuted for sexual assault? Yet she works for a man who has a credible rape allegation. Looks like she will look over those things in exchange for the VP slot. She has no integrity!!

  8. Thats wrong iran? Trump is enough dahil continue to recovery to everyone? Tulad nang sabi ko kahit pa kayoy alliance dipo ibig sabihin gawin na ninyo ang gusto ninyo? Priority is hold n helping each other to save the world n people not to use ure weapons to manipulate the country? So prepare india
