Joe Biden hailed Rishi Sunak becoming Prime Minister as an “astounding milestone”. The US President responded late on Monday to news the Richmond MP became the third Prime Minister in 2022, after Liz Truss resigned on Thursday.

Speaking as he marked Diwali, a five-day “Festival of Lights” and a celebration by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains, Mr Biden said: “Whether it’s the United Kingdom, where just today we’ve gotten news that Rishi — (applause) — Rishi Sunak is now the Prime Minister.  

“As my brother would say, ‘Go figure’. And the Conservative Party.  Expected to become the next Prime Minister I think tomorrow, when he goes to see the King.  

“Pretty astounding. A groundbreaking milestone. And it matters. It matters.”
