Boris Johnson sweeps & # 39; curious & # 39; comparisons between him and Donald Trump gone – he says they can't look alike because he can't even use Twitter properly
- Boris Johnson admired Donald Trump but said they are different
- He has been repeatedly compared to the American president, even by Trump himself
- However, Johnson insisted that there are many differences, especially Twitter
Boris Johnson has erased comparisons between him and Donald Trump, labeling them as & # 39; peculiar & # 39; and insisted that there were & # 39; many differences & # 39; are between him and the American president.
In a speech to NBC News, the prime minister joked that one of the differences was that he had no idea how to use Twitter.
Johnson was widely compared to Trump – by both allies and opponents – and the US president even said that the prime minister & British Trump & # 39; used to be.
The prime minister, however, played down the comparisons and maintained that there were many differences between the two men despite their mutual affection.
Donald Trump and Boris Johnson come for a bilateral meeting at the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, while the British Prime Minister endorses the agreements between the two leaders
He said: & # 39; Well, look, I think they [the comparisons] are peculiar. They are not, you know, I am a British conservative. I come from, you know, a tradition that believes in free market, free trade, everything.
& # 39; Where the most difference is when it comes to Twitter. I am not a master of that specific medium.
& # 39; I only give you one difference. I make you think of the many other differences. But there are many differences. & # 39;
The leaders joined forces on Monday at the United Nations to plead for a new, international nuclear agreement with Iran that bans state-sponsored terrorism.
Johnson publicly expressed his support for his American counterpart and said in the interview: "I think there is a man who can do a better deal [with Iran]," he said, "and that is the president of the United States. I hope there is a Trump deal. & # 39;
The prime minister also told the American television network that Trump is a & # 39; very, very brilliant negotiator & # 39; is, according to him, able to conclude a better agreement.
Speaking with NBC news, Johnson shared his admiration for the president, but insisted that they were very different
He joked in the interview that one of the differences between them was Trump & # 39; s command of Twitter
As he discussed Iran on Monday, Johnson said in a Sky News interview: & # 39; Whatever your objections to the old nuclear deal with Iran are, it is now time to move on and close a new deal. & # 39 ;
The American president, a few minutes later, told the New York press: & that's why he's a winner. That is why he is a man who will become successful in the UK. & # 39;
& # 39; I have a great deal of respect for Boris and I am not at all surprised that he was the first to say so & # 39 ;, he said.
He added that Johnson & # 39; very smart, very tough & # 39; is right in the dispute over the existing agreement.
& # 39; And he wants a new deal because the other deal was ready to expire. It was only a very short number of years. All that money paid and wasted. You did not have the right to inspect the correct sites, & he said.
& # 39; You were looking at sites that would never be used to make nuclear … What kind of deal is that? & # 39;
