THE FORMER chief of Britain’s Civil Service has said that Boris Johnson and other UK authorities will be happy to see Donald Trump’s Presidency come to an end.

Writing in the Daily Mail, Lord Sedwill wrote that those who believed Boris Johnson would welcome a second term of Trump Presidency were “mistaken”, saying that there was “relief in western capitals” when news broke that Joe Biden had won the US election.

“Based on my time working for Boris Johnson in Downing Street, I believe those who have said he would have preferred a second Trump term are mistaken,” Lord Sedwill wrote, “That would not have been to the benefit of British or European security, to transatlantic trade, let alone the environmental agenda to which the prime minister is so committed.”

Following the recent attack on the US Capitol by a mob of Donald Trump’s supporters, Boris Johnson said it was “completely wrong” for the President to repeat his baseless claims of election fraud. In 2016, when he was Foreign Secretary, Johson said there was a “lot to be positive about” when Trump came to power, claiming he has “many good qualities”.
