Joe Biden stands firm on maintaining an open border on the island of Ireland

Commenting on Brexit, US President-elect Joe Biden emphasized the significance of maintaining an open border on the island of Ireland. Mr. Biden firmly believes in his view that there should be no border on the island of Ireland.

Speaking to the media in Wilmington, Delaware, Joe Biden said yesterday, “We do not want a guarded border. We want to make sure – we’ve worked too long to get Ireland worked out.”

Mr. Biden made it clear that he had spoken about this with the British Prime Minister, Taoiseach Micheál Martin, and with others such as the French.

“The idea of having the border north and south once again being closed, it’s just not right, we have got to keep the border open,” he said.

Biden’s remarks come just one day after Charles Michel, President of the European Council, thanked the President-elect for his strong support for the implementation of the Withdrawal Agreement the EU concluded with the UK last year.

However, this is not the first time that the President-elect Biden has made his stance clear about the border on the island of Ireland. In September, Mr. Biden said in a tweet that, “We can’t allow the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland to become a casualty of Brexit.”

It was confirmed that Joe Biden was the first US presidential candidate ever to receive more than 80 million votes. Both Biden and Trump surpassed former President Barack Obama’s 2008 record of 69,498,516 votes this year.
