President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has sent hearty congratulations to Joe Biden, who is the newly elected President of the United States of America.
In his message which he wrote on twitter on Sunday November 8th, 2020, Museveni hailed Biden for exhibiting a high level of democracy and urged him to strengthen the cooperation between America and African countries.
“President-Elect of the USA. Congratulations and greetings from the People of Uganda. The USA, with its black population of 47.4m people, as well as a large Christian population linked with us by faith, could easily be a natural ally of Uganda and Africa,” President Museveni wrote on twitter.
He added that; “Previous American Presidents have already positively used these linkages by putting in place the African Growth And Opportunity Act that has given 6,500 types of African goods, quota & tax-free access to the USA. We salute this policy & hope that President Biden maintains it.
We, therefore, congratulate the American People on exercising their right by, massively, voting for the candidates of their choice: President Donald Trump and Vice- President Biden. We congratulate H.E. @JoeBiden for winning both the Popular vote and the Electoral College.”
Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. born November 20, 1942, is an American politician and president-elect of the United States.
Having defeated incumbent Donald Trump in the 2020 United States presidential election with 290 Electoral College votes against 214, he will be inaugurated as the 46th president in January 2021.
A member of the Democratic Party, Biden previously served as the 47th vice president from 2009 to 2017 and United States Senator for Delaware from 1973 to 2009.
