Trump Praises Boris Johnson After Parliament Suspension Announcement
President give BoJo a boost following counter move against 'remainers'
The move has outraged anti-Brexit campaigners and pro-EU politicians.
Trump said Wednesday that the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be a “great” leader.
The President also took time to affirm his well-known affection for the country of his mother’s birth, writing “Love U.K.!”.
Boris's move has caused outrage among anti-Brexit plotters, who were where hoping the extra time in Parliament would help them stop Brexit.
According to Breitbart: Chief among those conspirators is hard-left Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who headed a cross-party group of MPs Tuesday who plans to prevent Brexit taking place through tabling a vote of no confidence in the government.
President Trump reacted to this anti-Brexit coup, saying of the Labour leader:
“Would be very hard for Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Britain’s Labour Party, to seek a no-confidence vote against New Prime Minister Boris Johnson, especially in light of the fact that Boris is exactly what the U.K. has been looking for, & will prove to be “a great one!”.

President Trump has a solid record on lifting up Boris Johnson, even speaking in his favor as a good leader before he became the leader of the United Kingdom.
During the G7 meetings in France this weekend past, Trump hailed Boris as “the right man” to lead Britain through Brexit, remarking:
“He needs no advice. He’s the right man for the job; I’ve been saying that for a long time.”
On Wednesday, the Queen agreed to suspend Parliament days after MPs return to work and just weeks before the Brexit deadline.
The move will make way for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's new administration to hold a Queen's Speech, laying out the government's future plans.
It will mean MPs are unlikely to have time to pass laws to prevent a no-deal Brexit on 31 October.
