Brexit news: Trump says Boris Johnson is ‘going nowhere’ after calls to oust PM | UK | News


The US President has come out in support of Boris Johnson, saying the PM is “going nowhere” and vowing to secure a “magnificent” trade deal with the UK. The President also assured Mr Johnson that he will win any future court battles after his prorogation of Parliament was ruled unlawful by the Supreme Court.

Trump compared the ruling to his administration’s loss of a series of rulings during his first months in office, but then having gone on to win major cases regarding ending for the border wall and granting asylum.

He said after the initial losses: “We’ve almost run the table.

“We’ve won a lot of decisions.

“I’m sure that’s going to happen to you.”

Jeremy Corbyn, among others, has called for the Prime Minister to resign after 11 justices ruled that Parliament’s shutdown was in effect illegal.

As Trump met Boris during the UN Assembly in New York, the President said: “I’ll tell you, I know him well, he’s not going anywhere.”

Mr Johnson replied: “No, no, no,” adding: “Tomorrow is another day in parliament.”

When asked if he had any reaction to the Supreme Court verdict, the President said: “I had no reaction – for him it’s just another day at the office.”

Mr Johnson was given a boost yesterday when Trump said the US would broker a “magnificent” trade deal with the UK.

He said: “As the United Kingdom makes preparation for its exit from the European Union I have made clear that we stand ready to complete an exceptional new trade agreement that will bring opportunities to our countries.”

Mr Johnson urged both countries “break down barriers” in trade after the UK leaves the EU, in the hope of a bumper trade deal to bolster anything lost as a result of Brexit.
