Trump or Biden: who did Europe support in the US elections

Germany, France, and other European countries told what they think about voting in the USA

Europe is trying to maintain neutrality on the issue of the presidential elections in the United States, not supporting either side and is restrained in commenting on the voting process.

In particular, as writes Politico, the European Commission refused to comment on the voting results before the announcement of the final results of the vote count.

“While the process of counting votes in the United States continues, and until its completion, we cannot comment on the situation. You need to trust the authorities of this country, which has a long democratic tradition than some EU countries,” said EC spokesman Eric Mamer, urging everyone to be patient ...

Also, as the Secretary of State under the French Prime Minister Gabriel Attal said, at a meeting of the Council of Ministers, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian expressed Paris's readiness to work with any of the current candidates, whoever won the elections.

At the same time, the leader of the far-right National Rally party Marine Le Pen called the victory of Republican Donald Trump more preferable for France.

In Spain, initially, they also refused to evaluate the course of the vote in any way, but later, as reported by La Sexta, Foreign Minister Arancia Gonzalez Laya also expressed her readiness to work with any winner of the election.

“I trust American institutions. We will come to terms with who will be the winner of this election, and we will work in good faith and responsibly,” she said.

The same opinion is held in the Germany.

“The United States will remain an important partner for us. It is important for us that everything is calculated and that in the end there is a clear result obtained in the course of democratic procedures,” said the head of the German Ministry of Finance and Vice-Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
