Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Most World Leaders Congratulate Biden and Harris; Brazil, Russia, Mexico and China Hold Off

HeadlineNov 09, 2020

Heads of state around the world have offered congratulations to Biden and Harris, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro — a major Trump ally — has remained silent on Biden’s victory. So have Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani celebrated Trump’s loss, saying the next U.S. administration had an opportunity to “make up for past mistakes” — a reference to President Trump’s unilateral withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
