Daniel Zeichner MP said: “Like many people in Cambridge I have watched the American election with a mixture of fascination and horror and I am just so pleased that Trump has been defeated. I feel an overwhelmingly sense of relief.
This is a great day for everyone who believes that hope and decency can triumph over despair and hatred. It’s a victory everyone who supports a rules based international order, and for those of us who want to urgently tackle climate change, racism and division.
I have to say I am disappointed by the muddled response from the Prime Minister and the Government but pleased that Sir Keir Starmer so quickly acted as the statesman he is, and warmly congratulated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their victory and praised their campaign marked by decency, integrity and compensation.
Now we have the chance to work together to defeat the pandemic and tackle climate change. It is a good day.”
