Joe Biden makes Brexit intervention and says there must be NO BORDER on island of Ireland | Politics | News

Speaking to reporters in Wilmington, Delaware, Mr Biden said: “We do not want a guarded border.

“We want to make sure we work too hard to get Ireland worked out.

“I’ve talked with the British prime minister; I’ve talked with the Taoiseach; I’ve talked with others and I’ve talked with the French.

“The idea of having the border north and south once again being closed, it’s just not right.

“We’ve just got to keep the border open.”

Mr Biden, who has made much of his Irish heritage, previously said there would be no UK-US trade deal if Britain violates the terms of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.

Boris Johnson, who argues parts of the deal are an infringement on British sovereignty, has been threatening to make this move.

Speaking in September the then presidential candidate said: “Any trade deal between the US and UK must be contingent upon respect for the agreement and preventing the return of a hard border. Period.”

Mr Biden was vice-president in 2016 when Barack Obama decisively controversially intervened in the EU referendum campaign to warn against a leave vote.

The then president claimed it would put Britain at the “back of the queue” for any future trade deal.

Mr Biden has also raised eyebrows with his decision to appoint Antony Blinken, a former deputy secretary of state, as his top national security advisor.

Speaking on the Pod Save the World podcast Mr Blinken described the Brexit process as “the dog that caught the car and then the car goes into reverse and runs over the dog – it’s a total mess”.

He added peace in Northern Ireland would become “a heck of a lot tougher to maintain” as a result of the UK’s EU exit and added “so many young Brits feel like they’ve had the rug pulled out from under them”.

Mr Biden triumphed in the US presidential election earlier this month.

Donald Trump continues to claim the election was rigged against him and has launched legal action in a number of states, though no state result has yet been overturned.

The president has however agreed to allow the transition process to start, meaning Mr Biden will receive top secret intelligence briefings.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, who joined Mr Trump on the campaign trail, argued Mr Biden would be bad for the UK ahead of the presidential election.

He said: “Donald Trump is pro-British in a way that Joe Biden never was and will never be.

“A Biden victory means a return to the days of Barack Obama, when he flew to Berlin when he crossed the Atlantic rather than to London.”

Mr Johnson was one of the first world leaders to speak to Mr Biden following his election triumph.

He later tweeted: “The US is our important ally and I look forward to working closely together on our shared priorities, from climate change to trade and security.”

Whilst Britain formally left the EU at the end of January it remains in a Brexit transition period until the beginning of next year.

During this time the UK continues to pay into the EU budget and has to follow Brussels regulations on a number of policy areas.

Currently the Government is negotiating to replace this with a new trade deal from January.

However no agreement has yet been reached between the UK and EU with the two sides remaining divided on fishing rights and ‘level playing field’ regulations.
