Relief sweeps through Western capitals after Biden win. I LOVE the bells ringing across Paris. Heartwarming celebrations across the world.
Fireworks in London: "Congratulation, America! We're celebrating with you!"
"Decency won," French President Emanual Macron said.
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo was less diplomatic. "Welcome back America!" she wrote on Twitter. "Congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for their election!"
"This is a moment of relief and joy," Norbert Röettgen, who chairs Germany's parliamentary foreign affairs committee, welcomed Biden but signaled that there may not be a return to the way things were before Trump.
"Let's all take a break to celebrate that decency won," he added. "I am very happy for all my American friends and for this great chance to revive our trans-Atlantic friendship."
He may have lost re-election.........but I certainly don’t think he’s going to just go away. He has over 80 million Twitter followers where.......if he told them the sun was made of butter they’d nod blindly in agreement. He may even try to run again in 4 years. I can totally see him still having huge rallies when he re-enters private life. He may have been defeated, but what’s important is to make sure to realize this has happened once and can happen again.
I love every word of it here but we are not rid of Trump yet. We should be wary and in fear of anything he might try next, and this includes illegal court actions and even wanting his base to do all out war. Both his boys seem OK with that and so does Steve Bannon. Ultimate victory here depends on whether the media still wants to treat Trump's words as truth without any evidence at all. If media can call his bluff we might get Biden confirmed.
