“I think he is a great representative for your country”, the U.S. President said of Johnson, speaking days after Britain’s former foreign secretary resigned in protest over Theresa May’s Brexit plans.
The issue dominated Mrs May’s talks with the President, and at Chequers Mr Trump told his host: “Whatever you do is OK with me”.
“She’s looking forward to sitting down with the president and talking him through the white paper”, the spokesman for UK Prime Minister Theresa May told Reuters on Friday when asked about US President Donald Trump’s threats he made in an interview with the Sun newspaper. He criticized the US President over his tweets following the terror attacks in London past year.

Trump also said that he “would have done it much differently” in reference to the Brexit plan. “I don’t take questions from CNN”.
If May has Britain align its rules and regulations for goods and agricultural products with Europe, following “a common rule book” with Brussels, as she puts it, then, Trump said, that could derail a trade deal with Washington. “It will limit the possibilities of doing trade deals easily in the future”. “I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism”.
“Let me tell you, he’s a very talented guy”.
Trump gushed about how excited he was to meet the queen in an interview with The Sun beforehand. The only exception during her reign is that she never officially met Lyndon B. Johnson during his time in office.
The Labour leader also criticised the Prime Minister for failing to clarify her approach to Brexit, before adding that he would vote against any deal that damages living standards, industry, trade or jobs. I have a lot of respect for her.
“I used to love London as a city”, he added. He said Friday that May and her representatives have since reassured him that a trade deal would still be possible. “I would-I would actually say she probably went the opposite way”.
Police are expecting more than 100 protests across the country, including two large demonstrations in London today.
