Nobody likes to see their friends not getting on, and Trump made it clear on Sunday that he was upset by Boris Johnson not wanting to work with Nigel Farage.
Speaking to reporters at the White House, the president said that he hopes the prime minister and Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage would come together on a united platform.
Calling Johnson a “wonderful guy”, Trump was asked which side he’d choose.
I like them both…so I think Boris will get it right. They’re both friends of mine. What I’d like to see is for Nigel and Boris to come together. I think that’s a possibility.
He went on to say:
Boris is the right man for the time. He’s really for the times. He’s a great gentleman. He’s a wonderful guy. He’s tough, he’s smart and I think he’s going to do something.
Johnson has already said he wouldn’t work with the Brexit Party, but still, Trump seems to be holding out hope that his two pals will learn to work together.
As you can imagine, the thought of Trump trying to play peacemaker between Farage and Johnson and some people cringing, plus a few other things that the president said didn't entirely add up.
