Trump, who only tested positive for Covid-19 last week, spent just a few days in hospital before returning to the White House where he has since speculated that he could be 'immune.'
In a tweet posted by the president on Wednesday evening, Trump said that he had just spoken to Johnson and that he was 'very thankful for his friendship and support as I recovered from the China Virus.'

The contrast between Johnson and Trump's response to coronavirus has been clear.
Although Johnson has been criticised for some aspects of the UK's reaction to the pandemic, he did take a two-week break from his duties as prime minister and even hired a personal trainer, recently admitting that he thought he was 'fat.'
In comparison, Trump has said that he 'feels better than he did 20 years ago' but has also put others at risk by having secret service agents to drive him so he could wave at supporters outside the Walter Reed Medical Centre in Maryland.
