The king and crown prince congratulate Biden on his election victory



King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman congratulated President-elect Joe Biden on his expected victory in Sunday’s 2020 elections, according to Saudi Press Agency.

Why is it important: The Saudi government is one of the Trump administration’s closest allies in the world, with White House adviser Jared Kushner sharing a personal friendship with MBS. Despite pressure from Congress, President Trump remained trapped by MBS after he was accused of ordering the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018.

Big picture: Trump’s allies around the world are slowly understanding the fact that the election is over, even as the president refuses to give in and continues to file a long-term lawsuit over voter fraud allegations.

  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, one of Trump̵
    7;s other top allies, waited more than 12 hours after US networks called for a presidential race to send congratulations to Biden.
  • UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán also sent their congratulations. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping were not available for comment.
