Johnson resign? 'He's not going anywhere,' says Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump dismissed British opposition demands that Prime Minister Boris Johnson resign after the UK Supreme Court ruled he had acted unlawfully.

Lisa Bernhard reports.

U.S. President Donald Trump defended British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Tuesday in the wake of a UK Supreme Court ruling that could cost Johnson his job.

Trump's comments came as the two world leaders met on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason asked Johnson whether he'll step down as Prime Minister after the UK's highest court ruled that his decision to shut down parliament in the run-up to Brexit was unlawful.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) REUTERS WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT JEFF MASON, TO UK PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON, SAYING: "Some of your critics are saying that you should resign because you misled the Queen with regard to shutting Parliament down.

How do you respond to that?" (SOUNDBITE) (English) UK PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON, SAYING: "Well, as I said earlier on, thank you very much - as I said earlier on, let's be absolutely clear, we respect the judiciary in our country, we respect the court.

I disagree profoundly with what they had to say.

I think it was entirely right to go ahead with a plan for a Queen's speech.

This is the longest period - we haven't had a Queen's speech for 400 years.

We've got a dynamic domestic agenda we need to be getting on with - more police on the streets, investment in our National Health Service, improving our education, we need to get on with that.

And frankly I think we need to get on with Brexit.

That's the overwhelming view of the British people, whether they voted to Leave or Remain, they want to get this thing done by October the 31st.

That's what we're gonna do." (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "That was a very nasty question from a great American reporter." [Laughter in room] (SOUNDBITE) (English) UK PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON, SAYING: "Was that an American reporter?" (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "He's an American reporter, and he's a good one." (SOUNDBITE) (English) UK PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON, SAYING: "I think he was asking a question, to be fair, that a lot of British reporters would have asked me." (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "Now that we have that out of the way.

He's not - I'll tell ya, I know him well, he's not going anywhere.

Don't worry about him." Back in Britain, opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn called on Johnson to resign, but Corbyn said he would not press for a new election until he was sure a No-deal Brexit was off the table.

British lawmakers return to Parliament Wednesday.

Pakistan's opposition parties unite to rally against PM Imran Khan

A group of 11 major opposition parties in Pakistan have joined hands to raise their protest against the ruling Prime Minister Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). A large number of people gathered in Gujranwala city of Punjab Province for a massive opposition rally on Friday. The government even blocked the roads to Gujranwala to flog the opposition rally. On September 20, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was formed by 11 opposition parties to launch a three-phased anti-government movement under an "action plan". It includes countrywide public meetings, protest demonstrations and rallies followed by a 'decisive long march' towards Islamabad in January 2021. Opposition leaders are also seeking no-confidence motions and mass resignations from Parliament for 'the selected' prime minister's resignation. Opposition parties have accused Pakistan Army of rigging the 2018 elections that brought Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf party to power.
