Johnson - man who needs no advice

"He needs no advice. He is the right man for the job. I've been saying that for a long time. It didn't make your predecessor very happy but I've been saying it for a long time. He's the right man for the job," said Trump praising Johnson.

Boris hails American economy

"I just want to congratulate the president on everything that the American economy is achieving. It's fantastic to see that but just to register as a faint sheep-like note of our view on the trade war, we are in favour of trade peace on the whole," Johnson stated.
