President Trump said former UK foreign secretary Boris Johnson and current UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt would both make good British prime ministers.
“I know Boris, I like him, I’ve liked him for a long time,” Trump said standing alongside the outgoing UK leader Theresa May.
“I think he would do a very good job,” Trump went on, adding of Hunt: “I know Jeremy, I think he would do a very good job.”
Trump said he didn’t know another contender, Michael Gove, but was assured that he, too, would suffice as prime minister.
As for May, he acknowledged she rejected his advice to sue to EU. But he said that may not have been a mistake.
“She’s probably a better negotiator than I am,” Trump said.
