Donald Trump praises Boris Johnson as 'right man' for Brexit at G7
US President Donald Trump very famously did not get on very well with UK's previous Prime Minister Theresa May. Now, that her successor has taken over, Trump is all praises for Boris Johnson.
In a recent meeting on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, Trump has described Boris Johnson as “the right man” for Brexit.
When asked of he had given Johnson any advice, he said: “He [Johnson] needs no advice, he is the right man for the job.” Johnson said Trump was “on message there”.
Trump later even tweeted pictures from their breakfast meeting and described it as a "great working breakfast".

The bromance between the two leaders seems to be getting stronger.
The AP: reports that this much-anticipated meeting was the first since Johnson took up Britain’s Prime Ministership last month. The two leaders were also photographed on Saturday night walking and talking on the margins of the summit.
