Boris Johnson Advises Donald Trump To Not Interfere In Brexit Election

Corbyn has used Trump’s praise of Johnson as one of his focal messages to attack the Conservatives in his campaign, saying they would sell off parts of the much-loved state-run National Health Service to U.S. businesses after Brexit if they win the election.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said it was best if U.S. President Donald Trump did not get involved in Britain’s upcoming election.

“What we don’t do traditionally as loving allies and friends, what we don’t do traditionally, is get involved in each other’s election campaigns,” said Johnson, whose Conservative Party has a commanding lead in the polls ahead of the Dec. 12.

Trump, who is due to arrive in London on Dec. 2, is likely to be asked about his attitude to future trade talks.

However, Johnson said he would walk out of trade negotiations if including the health service was a pre-condition.

“First of all the NHS is not for sale. Under no circumstances will this government or any Conservative government do anything to put the NHS up for negotiation in trade talks or privatizing anything like that,” he said. “I can tell you were the United States, or any other country, to insist on that as condition of talks we would simply walk out.”
