The U.S. dollar declined against the British pound on Friday after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was officially declared victor of Britain's general election.

Boris Johnson' s election victory has seemingly enraged Brits in central London tonight.

On Friday evening, protesters descended on Whitehall, central United Kingdom, waving flags and placards while shouting "not my Prime Minister" just hours after Johnson pledged to heal the divisions of Brexit, as he returned to Downing Street after securing a crushing victory in Thursday's election over Labour, The Daily Mail reported. "They want to do business with us so badly", he added.

Large Anti-Boris Johnson protests have occurred outside of London as well.

"You're also going to see people saying, 'My God, Boris Johnson, who is kind of a physical and emotional clone of the president, is able to win, '" Biden said.

With one seat to declare its result, Johnson has won 364 seats in the election, a gain of 47, mainly at the expense of the main opposition Labour party. The protesters are chanting things such as "Not My Prime Minister" and they are holding signs that say, "Defy Tory Rule".

Has Boris Johnson hastened the break up of the United Kingdom?
Conservative party chairman James Cleverly told the BBC that Thursday's result was not a mandate for a second independence vote. Johnson made a big play when taking over from Theresa May about being "Minister for the Union", as well as Prime Minister.

At least two protestors were arrested during last night's protest, one for assaulting a police officer and another for brawling, the Telegraph reports.

The success of Boris Johnson, the prime minister who has been compared to President Donald Trump, will boost the belief that Trump can be re-elected, Biden said.

Videos of the protestors have since begun to surface online of protestors in multiple areas across London.

Protesters also met in Glasgow, the second city of Scotland.

In a speech given after his stunning electoral defeat over the 70-year-old socialist, Jeremy Corby, Prime Minister Johnson called for unity.
