Big Ben Video Shows Johnson Calling Trump 'Unfit for Office'

Trump Tells The UK to 'Walk Away' From Europe

In his second extraordinary intervention into British politics ahead of this week's state visit, the U.S. president suggested the United Kingdom should "walk away" from talks and refuse to pay the £39 billion divorce bill if its requests are not met.

The launch coincided with the arrival in Britain of U.S. President Donald Trump, who has thrown his weight behind Johnson by saying he would do a "very good job" as British leader.

The former foreign secretary is popular among the grassroots Tory members, but they will only get a vote once the party's MPs have whittled down the ever-growing candidates list to a final two. But at the same time if they don't get what they want they should "walk away", he said.

On the Brexit divorce bill, Trump said: "If I were them, I wouldn't pay 50 billion dollars".

"If they don't get what they want, I would walk away", Trump said in an interview with the Sunday Times published over the weekend. "That is me. I would not pay, that is a tremendous number".

Trump repeated his backing for those candidates to succeed May who have said Britain must leave on the due date of October 31 with or without a deal.

The intervention comes after Trump used another newspaper interview to declare that former foreign minister Boris Johnson would be an "excellent" replacement for May.

Outgoing UK prime minister Theresa May, whose announcement last month that she will be officially resigning her post on June 7th sparked a leadership contest in the Conservative party, will this week hold a series of talks with Donald Trump on a range of subjects relevant to British business and the economy.

I think he has got a lot to offer.

Though Johnson was openly critical of Trump while London mayor, the president described the divisive MP as "a very good guy, a very talented person".

"Think how well they would do if they did", he added.

He also said he might not share vital intelligence with Britain if Jeremy Corbyn becomes prime minister.

Interesting comments coming in from Trump on Brexit as he embarks on a three-day state visit to Britain.

Another senior Labour lawmaker, Yvette Cooper, said it was wrong to gift Trump the opportunity of photographs with the royal to boost his re-election campaign next year.

Mr Trump's visit dismayed London mayor Sadiq Khan, who compared the president's language to that of the "fascists of the 20th century" and said he should not be given red-carpet treatment.

Asked about Markle's remarks, Trump told The Sun, "I didn't know that".

On the eve of President Donald Trump's long-delayed United Kingdom visit, a group projected a video of Prime Minister candidate Boris Johnson trashing then-candidate Trump in 2015, calling him "out of his mind", "portraying a quite stupefying ignorance", and suggesting he was "unfit for office".

"The combination of Brexit, Farage and Huawei makes it particularly fraught", he added, referring also to the Trump administration's targeting of the Chinese telecommunications company.
