UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he’s not concerned about the state of US democracy after the 2020 election. 

“I think that reports of the death of democracy in the United States are grossly, grossly exaggerated,” Johnson told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday. 

Former President Donald Trump falsely claimed the 2020 election was rigged. Trump and his team made multiple attempts to overturn the election results, and on January 6, 2021, Trump supporters violently stormed the Capitol as Congress was about to certify the election results.

Johnson, who was born in New York City, called America a “shining city on a hill,” adding that it will continue to be so. 

“The mere fact that Joe Biden has stepped up to the plate in the way that he has shows that instincts of America are very much in the right place,” Johnson said. “Look, there were some weird and unattractive scenes… but I don’t believe American democracy is under threat.”

He added that he still believes that America is the biggest “guarantor of democracy and freedom.”
