President Yoweri Museveni has sent his congratulatory message to Joe Biden, the US president-elect.
Mr Museveni who is also an NRM presidential candidate in Uganda's 2021 election highlighted the similarities between America and Uganda, adding that the US could easily be a natural ally of Africa.
"H.E. @JoeBiden, President-Elect of the USA. Congratulations and greetings from the People of Uganda. The USA, with its black population of 47.4m people, as well as a large Christian population linked with us by faith, could easily be a natural ally of Uganda and Africa," Mr Museveni tweeted on Sunday.
Mr Museveni who is expected to win the 2021 election in Uganda noted that previous American Presidents have worked well on account of the similarities between Ugandans, Africans and Americans.
"Previous American Presidents have already positively used these linkages by putting in place the African Growth And Opportunity Act that has given 6,500 types of African goods, quota & tax-free access to the USA. We salute this policy & hope that President Biden maintains it," Mr Museveni said.
Mr Museveni continued: "We, therefore, congratulate the American People on exercising their right by, massively, voting for the candidates of their choice: President Donald Trump and Vice- President Biden. We congratulate H.E. @JoeBiden for winning both the Popular vote and the Electoral College."
Democrat Joe Biden won the White House defeating Donald Trump and ending a presidency that convulsed American politics, shocked the world and left the United States more divided than at any time in decades, according to analysts.
CNN, NBC News and CBS News called the race in Biden's favor just before 11:30 am (1630 GMT) as an insurmountable lead in Pennsylvania took the 77-year-old over the top in the state-by-state count that decides the presidency.
Trump had no immediate reaction to the announcement, but as Biden's lead grew during vote counts since Tuesday's election, the Republican president lashed out with unsubstantiated claims of fraud and claimed, falsely, that he had won.
Earlier Saturday, as he headed to his golf course in Virginia, he repeated this, tweeting: "I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!"
However, the result now condemns 74-year-old Trump to become the first one-term president since George H. W. Bush at the start of the 1990s.
Biden, who got the votes of a record more than 74 million people, was hunkered down with his running mate Kamala Harris, in his home town of Wilmington, Delaware.
Late Friday he delivered an address urging Americans to "come together as a nation and heal."
