President Joe Biden’s decision on Sunday to withdraw from the 2024 presidential race drew reactions from many prominent foreign leaders. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau thanked President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden in a statement. “I’ve known President Biden for years. He’s a great man, and everything he does is guided by his love for his country. As President, he is a partner to Canadians—and a true friend,” he said. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz credited President Biden with making NATO “strong” in a post on X, and said his decision to step down “deserves respect.” “Joe Biden has achieved a lot: for his country, for Europe, for the world. Thanks to him, transatlantic cooperation is close, NATO is strong and the USA is a good and reliable partner for us,” the chancellor said. British Prime Minister Keir Starmer said he respects President Biden’s decision and looks “forward to us working together during the remainder of his presidency.” “I know that, as he has done throughout his remarkable career, President Biden will have made his decision based on what he believes is in the best interests of the American people,” he said in a statement. Israeli President Isaac Herzog thanked President Biden “for his friendship and steadfast support for the Israeli people over his decades long career,” in a statement, while Israeli Minister of Defense Yoav Gallant thanked the president for “unwavering support of Israel over the years.” “Your steadfast backing, especially during the war, has been invaluable. We are grateful for your leadership and friendship,” Mr. Gallant said. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said his country is “grateful to President Biden for his unwavering support for Ukraine's fight for freedom, which, along with strong bipartisan support in the United States, has been and continues to be critical” in a post on X. “Many strong decisions have been made in recent years and they will be remembered as bold steps taken by President Biden in response to challenging times. “And we respect today's tough but strong decision,” Mr. Zelenskyy added.
