Donald Trump has congratulated Boris Johnson on his huge election win and is promising a “massive” post-Brexit trade deal between the UK and US.
Free to pass comment on the vote after sort of but not really staying out of it during his trip to London for a NATO summit earlier this month, Mr Trump tweeted: “Congratulations to Boris Johnson on his great WIN!
“Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a massive new Trade Deal after BREXIT. This deal has the potential to be far bigger and more lucrative than any deal that could be made with the E.U. Celebrate Boris!”
The president has spoken fondly of Mr Johnson since he was elected as Conservative Party leader in the summer, succeeding Theresa May in Downing Street.
