    “We wish the future President of the United States, Joe Biden, all the best in the tasks ahead in his important office. We accept the democratic decision of the American citizens and are confident that possible irregularities in the counts will be resolved quickly through the rule of law. We will continue to support the policy of the United States whenever it is in the interests of Germany and clearly criticize it when it runs counter to the interests of our country.”

    The two faction leaders received massive criticism on Twitter, where almost all of over 800 comments were negative. Some AfD members even threatened to leave the party.

    Deviating from the faction line, the AfD MP Markus Frohnmaier on Facebook expressed his displeasure at such premature congratulatory messages: “The globalists are happy about children’s ‘friend’ Biden. They want to overcome nation states and destroy our identity through genderism. We must finally muck out and clean up in 2021. Get ready.”

    Even AfD party founder Martin Renner criticized the move by Weidel and Gauland sharply: “Those who have already sent congratulations to the not-yet confirmed winner and challenger Biden in the US election campaign, either has no idea of the global historical dimension of the current political situation or he wants his sinecure fixed in time. Tertium non datur.”

    In the US, Republicans intend to act against the many election irregularities. There may be recounts in Wisconsin and Georgia. In Nevada, the Republican Party has filed criminal charges of electoral fraud in at least 3 062 cases, and in Arizona for rejecting voters.

    In Pennsylvania, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has criticized the handling of postal ballot papers that were received too late and ordered the electoral authority to sort them out. In Michigan and Georgia there were massive irregularities with the election software Dominion, which is used in 30 states.

      Why bother? Even though it is clear as I have said for many months that Trump is not going to be the next POTUS. This at least is fair enough:

      We will continue to support the policy of the United States whenever it is in the interests of Germany and clearly criticize it when it runs counter to the interests of our country.

      Except that, not being in government, it hardly matters.
