WASHINGTON, Aug 21 (DPA / EP) –

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, has praised this Tuesday the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, who says that “it will be very important for the United Kingdom”, before his first official meeting this weekend in the framework of the G7 summit in France.

“I think he will be a great prime minister,” Trump said. “I think it will be far superior,” he added, possibly referring to former British Prime Minister Theresa May, to whom the US president often offered advice on how to handle the Brexit negotiations.

The US Administration has stated that it wants to reach a trade agreement with the United Kingdom as soon as * it ceases to be part of the European Union.

“Dealing with the European Union is very difficult,” said the US president.
