Johnson and Trump look forward to meeting this week - White House official

Boris Johnson meeting US President Donald Trump for bilateral talks during the G7 summit in Biarritz, France.

"If we can get a working majority then we will come on January 31 at the absolute latest", Johnson told LBC radio.

Mr Trump is scheduled to pay a go to to Britain on Tuesday, by which he'll dine with Mr Johnson and also other world leaders in a banquet - a visit that is likely to dominate the news at a crucial point in the election effort.

And he will press ahead with getting Brexit done - if the Conservatives are successful on December 12.

The panel was discussing the so-called special relationship between Boris Johnson and whether Mr Trump was someone the United Kingdom should be working closely with. The President expressed his condolences following the terrorist attack in London.

Johnson's pressure prompted the White House to stress, as a senior administration official said, that Trump "is absolutely cognizant of not, again, wading into other country's elections".

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson appears on BBC TV's The Andrew Marr Show in London, Britain, Dec, 1, 2019.

If so, says the Liberal Party, bring on chlorinated chicken, hormone-injected beef and privatization of the national health service.

Mr Trump did have some criticism for Mr Johnson's Brexit deal, claiming it hinders trade with the US.

The president also warned in a recent interview that left-wing Labour leader Corbyn would take Britain to "such bad places".

Corbyn has used Trump's praise of Johnson as one of his focal messages to attack the Conservatives in his campaign, saying they would sell off parts of the much-loved state-run National Health Service to the U.S. businesses after Brexit if they win the election.

Labour recently published a 451-page package of allegedly leaked government documents showing that the Conservative Cabinet under Prime Minister Theresa May had purportedly negotiated the "sale" of the NHS to the US.

Trump meanwhile is also close to Nigel Farage, a key figure in the 2016 European Union referendum whose upstart Brexit Party threatens to take Tory votes with a promise of a hard break with Brussels. "And to be honest with you, this deal, under certain aspects of the deal, you can't do it", Trump said.
