UK PM Johnson urges Trump to stay out of UK election

Late on Friday, the 29th of November 2019, the UK PM Boris Johnson, a hard-Brexiteer who had yielded a December 12th General Election for Britain last month in a bid to smoothen up the nation’s divorce with the European Union after staying more than five decades in the bloc, said that it would be “best” if the US President Donald Trump could manage to stay out of UK election rancour during his visit to London for a NATO summit as early as next week.

In point of fact, the US President Donald Trump had already meddled in UK election and picked PM Johnson’s side last month saying a triumph for Opposition Labour Party’s Corbyn would be “so bad” for Britain and recommending that the British PM should create a pact with Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage.

Nonetheless, later on Friday (November 29th), a top official of Trump Administration was quoted saying to the reporters that the US President would not wade into any other country’s election again, however, tensions were running high and conservatives remained fretted that Trump might have upset their election campaign during his visit to London for a NATO summit as beforementioned.

Meanwhile, cautioning one of his closest allies, US President not to meddle with Britain’s election, UK PM Johnson said in an interview with LBC Radio on Friday (November 29th), “What we don’t do traditionally as loving allies and friends, what we don’t do traditionally, is get involved in each other’s election campaigns.

The best (thing) when you have close friends and allies like the U.S. and the UK is for neither side to get involved in each other’s election. ”
