Donald Trump has heaped praise on the UK’s new prime minister, Boris Johnson, describing him as “Britain Trump” during a speech to hundreds of teenage fans in Washington on Tuesday.
“We have a really good man who’s going to be the prime minister of the UK now,” the US president said. “He’s tough and he’s smart. They’re saying, ‘Britain Trump’. They call him ‘Britain Trump’ and people are saying that’s a good thing.”
