Interestingly, The Only World Leaders Who Haven't Congratulated Biden Are ... Mostly Communist

 (*Updated as any late-comer congratulations come in.)

They are:

1.  Russia - Vladimir Putin, President.


2.  China - Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party


3.  North Korea - Kim Jong-Un, Supreme Leader.


4.  Belarus  -  Alexander Lukashenko, President has not - although opposition-party leader, Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya has.  


(* Disputed President Alexander Lukashenko has been accused of corruption, rigging elections, and using Belarusian military and police forces to subdue citizens in a brutal and violent manner - before, during, and after protests.  Biden has released a written statement against Lukashenko, in support of Tsikhanouskaya.)


5.  Slovenia - has both a prime minister and a president - Prime Minister Janez Janza, from the same region as Melania Trump, has not - President Borut Pahor has.


6.  Mexico - Andres Obrador, President - elected in 2018, unlike his predecessor, Enrique Pena Nieto, Obrador has openly endorsed Trump.


7.  Brazil - Jair Bolsonaro, President, close ally with Trump.  



*Honorable/Dishonorable Mentions:  

1.  Saudi Arabia was late to the party, but Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman finally congratulated Biden on Sunday.


2.  Turkey gave a passive response, with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan saying it would not change their relations with the U.S. (which isn't good, at present, let's just say that). 


 3.  Israel - Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister - close ally with Trump, formally criminally charged with accepting bribes, fraud, and breach of trust, with his trial resuming December 6th - was also late to the party, congratulating Biden late yesterday.   


4. Estonia - Prime Minister Juri Ratas and President Kersti Kaljulaid have both congratulated Biden; however, the Secretary of the Interior, Mart Helme - part of far-right politics there - has not - and in fact, resigned.

So ... what do you think it means, Trumpers, when the only world leaders who haven't congratulated Biden on a win are communist dictators from communist countries, former communist countries who still behave like communists, and/or other world leaders who have been proven corrupt and/or have violent regimes, often funded by drug-cartel money? 

IMO - in addition the rest of the world was chomping at the bit for Trump to leave, too -  I think it also means Trump is a liar - in that it's not Biden we should've been worried about regarding communist/socialist tactics and having inappropriate relationships with communist and corrupt regimes - it has been, is, and always will be, Trump with inappropriate relationships with communist countries and employing communist tactics.

*The only exception would be Israel, but then not really  - the people of Israel are acutely aware of how corrupt Netanyahu is - because Netanyahu has been formally criminally indicted, awaiting trial on December 6, 2020 ;)
