Well, I guess it’s not a secret anymore.

The UK government is privately “desperate” for Donald Trump to lose the upcoming presidential election and be replaced by Joe Biden, according to a report by the Sunday Times.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson is publicly one of Trump’s closest international allies.
However, his government has been privately trying to distance itself from the US president, in anticipation of a potential Biden victory in November, the Times reports.
“It would make things much easier if Trump doesn’t win re-election,” one minister in Johnson’s government told the Times’ reporter Tim Shipman, who added that “privately, many [others in the government] agree.”
Some UK officials are also hopeful of a Biden victory.
One senior UK diplomat, who asked not to be named, told Insider earlier this month that a Biden presidency would bring a welcome end to the “venal corruption” of the Trump era.
“A lot of stuff will change if Biden wins,” the diplomat said.
“The venal corruption of the Trump family and the nasty narcissistic aspects of his behavior — all that will go with a different sort of president,” they said.
You know I can say with confidence that there are likely a WHOLE LOT of foreign governments that are secretly or even not so secretly, hoping that Joe Biden wins this election in November.
I mean I would think that Canada, France, Germany, and actually most of Europe are a given.
In fact, I would think that really the only government that is seriously pushing for a Trump win would be the Russian government.
After all, it is so much harder to work the strings on puppet who is not afraid of what you might reveal about them.
