‘Shadow of Trump looms large’: Boris Johnson opponents using president’s visit as a weapon against prime minister

  • Patrick Dunleavy

Description

Opponents of Boris Johnson are planning on hanging Donald Trump’s extreme lack of popularity in the United Kingdom around the neck of the prime minister when the president visits for NATO meetings this week in the hopes that it will damage Johnson’s chances of being re-elected on December 12.

According to a report at the Washington Post, “There’s little surprise that the American president is playing an outsize role in Britain’s upcoming elections — for good or bad, depending,” with Trump, all too often, offering opinions on the internal affairs of one of the most loyal of U.S. allies.
