Boris Johnson would make a ‘great prime minister’ and Theresa May made a bad Brexit deal by ignoring his advice, US President Donald Trump told a British tabloid.
The US President described the former foreign secretary as “a very talented guy.”
“I like him a lot,” he said. “I have a lot of respect for Boris. He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me. I was very saddened to see he was leaving government and I hope he goes back in at some point. I think he is a great representative for your country,” Trump told The Sun.
“I am not pitting one against the other,” the US president said when asked if he’d like to see Johnson as PM. “I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister. I think he’s got what it takes.”
