Trump: Johnson will deliver Brexit, 'very big' trade deal coming

United States President Donald Trump said that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will deliver Brexit and that a "very big" trade deal between the two countries would happen "quickly," media reported on Sunday.

At their meeting on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, Trump also said that Johnson did not need any advice and that he was the right man for the job. The US president further stated that the trade deal could happen when the "anchor" and "obstacle" of the United Kingdom's membership in the European Union was removed.

Trump's comments come after Johnson called on the US earlier in the day to compromise in order to get a trade deal. The UK's prime minister noted that there were still "considerable barriers" to British businesses in the US and that these would have to be lifted before British companies could trade effectively.
