Cor­byn won’t de­feat John­son, tweets Trump

The Scotsman - - PARLIAMENT SHUTDOWN - By EL­IZ­A­BETH ARNOLD

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.”
