Donald Trump said on Friday he was looking forward to working with Boris Johnson.
Johnson is the front-runner to be Britain’s next prime minister and Trump believes he will work out Brexit.
“I spoke to him yesterday.
I think he’s going to do a great job.
I think we’re going to have a great relationship,” Trump told reporters at a White House event.
Prime Minister Theresa May and Trump did not have a warm relationship.
He has repeatedly criticized for her handling of Britain’s separation from the European Union.
The previous prime minister has done a very bad job with Brexit.
It’s a disaster, and it shouldn’t be that way.
I think Boris will straighten it out.
Johnson is a front runner but many see Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as a strong candidate as well.
