August 28, 2019


The American president, Donald Trump, has entered the internal debate that has opened in the United Kingdom after Prime Minister Boris Johnson has asked to suspend Parliament until October in a measure criticized by the opposition who believes that it seeks prevent them from hindering a Brexit without agreement.

“It would be very hard for Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the British Labor Party, to seek a motion of censure against the new Prime Minister Boris Johnson, especially in light of the fact that Boris is exactly what the United Kingdom was looking for and will prove to be 'magnificent '”, he has written on his Twitter.

It is not the first time that Trump falls apart in praise for Johnson, with whom he held his first meeting last weekend on the margins of the G7 summit. “I sincerely believe that Boris Johnson will be a great prime minister,” said the president. “I've been waiting for about six years for him to be prime minister. I've told him 'why have you taken so long?'”
