Corbyn won’t defeat Johnson, tweets Trump
US president Donald Trump has tweeted his support for Boris Johnson as news broke of the Prime Minister’s plan to suspend Parliament.
Mr Trump reaffirmed his backing for Mr Johnson on Twitter just days after they met at the G7 summit in Biarritz.
Mr Trump wrote: “Would be very hard for Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Britain’s Labour Party, to seek a no-confidence vote against New Prime Minister Boris Johnson, especially in light of the fact that Boris is exactly what the U.K. has been looking for, & will prove to be ‘a great one!’ Love U.K.”
Mr Corbyn responded: “I think what the US president is saying,is that Boris Johnson is exactly what he has been looking for, a compliant PM who will hand our public services and protections over to US corporations in a free trade deal.”
