Johnson's win could mean 'a lot' for US-UK trade - Trump

President Trump expressed hope on Friday that Prime Minister Boris Johnson's win in UK parliamentary elections would take trade relations between the two countries a step further once Britain is out of the EU, noting that his victory can "mean a lot for trade" between the two cross Atlantic partners.

"I want to congratulate Boris Johnson on a terrific victory," Trump stated, noting that the Conservatives' win might be "a harbinger of what's to come in our country." Trump added that he hopes Johnson's victory could "bode well" for his own reelection bid.

In a sweeping victory yesterday, Conservatives in the UK won 365 seats in the House of Commons, securing a comfortable majority for the formation of the next government.
