United States President Donald Trump has praised his “friends” Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage – but has refused to state whether he will meet with the pair when he comes to the United Kingdom next week.
The US President is due in Britain for his first state visit from Monday through to Wednesday. He told reporters in Washington today: “I like them. “They are two great guys, very interesting people.
“Nigel’s had a big victory, he’s picked up 32 per cent of the vote starting from nothing.
“I think they are big powers over there.
“They’re friends of mine but I haven’t thought about supporting them. Maybe it’s not my business to support people.
“But I have a lot of respect for both of those men.”
President Donald Trump will bring his children and their spouses to meet the Queen next week.
He’ll also have discussions with the outgoing PM Theresa May, and will attend D-Day ceremonies in Portsmouth.
Hundreds of thousands are set to line the streets to protest his visit too.
Last year he stayed largely out of London on his whistle-stop tour of the UK.
After the PM resigned last week President Trump said he liked Mrs May very much and felt “sorry for her” that she had to resign.
