The Archbishop has said there are "huge amounts of fear" as a result of Donald Trump's election.
Speaking in his first interview since the Presidential result, Justin Welby spoke of the need to "find calm" in the situation.
The Archbishop warned against using "personalised forms of disagreement" and "savagery" - something which has often been used to describe the American political race.
He said their use had "stirred up emotions of hatred from deep within people", which - he added - were, "a thousands times worse than they have ever been in our past."
Speaking in Bath, as he toured the West Country, he said it would be presumptuous to begin criticising what had happened in America, but the campaign had been "clearly savage".
The Most Revd and Rt Hon Welby added that although politics had taken a turn into a bitter personality-led business, he did not believe the world should continue to conduct itself that way.
Following the announcement of the result, The Archbishop released a statement on social media calling for Mr Trump to be given "wisdom, insight and grace" as he takes up the role in January.
