British PM Johnson to Trump: keep out of United Kingdom election

Boris Johnson To Trump: Stay Out Of Our Elections

Donald Trump won't intervene in UK election after request from Boris Johnson

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson issued a warning to US President Donald Trump ahead of his visit to London for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit next week.

"We don't want to give a gift to Jeremy Corbyn", he added, referring to the leader of Britain's main opposition Labour Party, which is trailing the Conservatives in the polls by about 11%.

But during an interview with LBC, Mr Johnson said it was "best... for neither side to be involved in the other's election campaigns".

Boris Johnson has warned the USA president against giving him an endorsement ahead of the general election on 12 December.

The U.S. president, who is due to arrive on Monday, has cast Johnson as "Britain's Trump", and during a previous visit criticised Johnson's predecessor Theresa May over her Brexit policy.

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson appears on BBC TV's The Andrew Marr Show in London, Britain, Dec, 1, 2019.

When asked if Mr Trump has been briefed and warned not to speak about the election on his trip, a senior United States administration official said the president is "very conscious" of the fact "we do not interfere". On the eve of the British election, though, Trump wasn't circumspect, saying Corbyn "would be so bad" for Britain and describing his " friend" Boris Johnson as "the exact right guy for the times".

If so, says the Liberal Party, bring on chlorinated chicken, hormone-injected beef and privatization of the national health service.

Leader of the UK's main opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn has previously accused Johnson's government of planning to use a potential privitisation of the country's health services as a bargaining chip in trade talks with the U.S., with Trump's upcoming visit possibly only aggravating these speculations.

"But you know something, if all of us were caught out on what we said on a night out after a drink. none of us would be here", before he was drowned out by the panel.

"First of all the NHS is not for sale". His aides say he hopes Trump might be drawn into again criticizing Johnson's European Union exit deal, as he did earlier this month on a London radio show hosted by Farage.

As the election campaign enters its final weeks, Johnson told a press conference he wanted to keep in place preparations the government has made for the possibility of a no-deal Brexit.

When asked if he was going to have more children, Johnson, 55, who is living at Downing Street with his partner Carrie Symonds after separating from his wife past year, said: "I'm not going to get into discussions (on this)".
