BRITAIN voted and Joe Biden has declared himself the winner.
The Democratic presidential frontrunner branded the landslide vote handing Prime Minister Boris Johnson an imposing majority in the UK parliament as a sign for the 2020 U.S. election.
Biden is running in the primary as more of a centrist, despite his most formidable opponents tacking hard left.
The former two-term Vice President told supporters in San Francisco that the Labour Partys leftward drift under hard line socialist Jeremy Corbyn ultimately sealed its doom.
Biden predicted the takeaway from UK pundits as: Look what happens when the Labour Party moves so, so far to the left, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Labour comes up with ideas that are not able to be contained within a rational basis quickly, Biden continued.
He also cast Johnsons ability to unite his own bickering factions as a warning to anyone underestimating President Donald Trump.
Youre also going to see people saying, my God, Boris Johnson, who is kind of a physical and emotional clone of the president, is able to win, Biden said.
The Trump/Johnson comparison isnt new, and the cordial relationship between the world leaders was on display in the aftermath of the snap election.
Congratulations to Boris Johnson on his great WIN! Trump tweeted, noting the prospects for a massive new Trade Deal with post-Brexit Britain.
Trump added: Celebrate Boris!
And while news U.S. analysts Friday were divided on if Labour leader Corbyn’s drubbing is a harbinger for leftwing Democrats, some connections were undeniable.
Yesterday afternoon the National Organizing Director for Sen. Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist and one of Bidens fiercest challengers, tweeted to support Labour.
Above a photo of dozens of Sanders volunteers holding up their right fists or Corbyn signs, Claire Sandberg wrote: The Bernie team says #VoteLabour.
Corbyns interview with the Intercept in 2017 may also prove a problem for Sanders.
In the article, Corbyn recalls Sanders phoning him to congratulate him on an election win.
And Bernie comes on to say, Well done on the campaign, and I was interested in your campaigning ideas. Where did you get them from? Corbyn said. Then Corbyn delivered the punchline: And I said, Well, you, actually.
