Donald Trump supports Boris: President reveals that he has told Johnson that they will have a good relationship & # 39; and that New PM & # 39; Theresa May & # 39; s & # 39; poor Brexit job & # 39; yesterday in phone call & # 39; straightens & # 39; (although he is not yet a Tory leader)
- US President told reporters in Washington that he spoke to Mr. Johnson yesterday
- Reporters told in Washington: & # 39; I think we will have a great relationship & # 39;
- Mr. Johnson is muffled in his criticism of the recent Trump outbursts
Donald Trump gave Boris Johnson a striking approval today by saying that the favorite to replace Theresa May is a & # 39; great job & # 39; would do as a prime minister.
The US president told reporters in Washington that he had spoken with Mr. Johnson yesterday, with days to go until the vote for the next Tory leader closes.
Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office, Mr. Trump said: & I like him. I spoke to him yesterday. & # 39;
& # 39; He's going to do a great job & # 39 ;, the Republican President added. & # 39; We interact well with each other.
& # 39; I think we will have a great relationship. & # 39;
It is after relations between the two countries became tense about the release of secret cables from ambassador Sir Kim Darroch who criticized the Trump administration.

Trump was also confronted with criticism of racially charged remarks he made about four female democratic congress women from a minority group this week.
Mr. Johnson has been attacked about what in both cases was seen as a muffled criticism of the American leader.
Mr. Trump praised the similarity between the two men today, saying that Mr. Johnson is a & # 39; different kind of guy & # 39; and again destroyed the treatment of Mrs. May of the Brexit.
Trump said & # 39; the previous prime minister did very badly with the Brexit & # 39 ;, and added: & # 39; It's a disaster, and it shouldn't be like that. I think Boris will put it right. & # 39;
The president doubled his attack by & # 39; radical left democrats & # 39; whose open border policies he thought would paralyze the country with crime.
Last week, rival Jeremy Hunt demanded from Mr. Johnson that Trump respectfully respect the UK & # 39; while he criticizes the president for attacking the prime minister and promised to keep the British ambassador to Washington in office when he becomes prime minister.
The Foreign Minister said that Mr. Trump & # 39; irreverent and wrong & # 39; was to Mrs. May a & # 39; disaster & # 39; and Sir Kim Darroch a & # 39; pompous fool & # 39; when he raised the stake in a deteriorating row above leaked diplomatic memos.
The American president had described Sir Kim as a & # 39; very stupid guy & # 39; that & # 39; on the United States was & # 39; pushed and labeled the handling of Brexit by Mrs. May as a & # 39; mess & # 39; before giving her & # 39; fool & # 39; called.
But Mr. Johnson was criticized for not supporting Sir Kim during a live debate on the television screen, a movement he said led in part to the resignation of the respected diplomat the next day.
The Tory candidate – who was in hot water in the past because of alleged racist remarks – said on Monday evening that world leaders & # 39; simply cannot use that kind of language & # 39 ;.
He stopped, however, to call Trump a racist when he was encouraged by Tory debate moderators – as well as his rival Jeremy Hunt in their final head-to-shoulder confrontation.
In his speech in London today, Mr Javid said: "I am from an immigrant family, I know what it's like to be told to go back to where I come from – and I don't think they mean Rochdale"
The transatlantic approval came after Sajid Javid swept the racially charged rhetoric from Mr. Trump and other contemporary populist leaders, demanding that public figures & # 39; moderate their language & # 39; to stop the spread of toxic ideologies.
The Minister of the Interior called for an honest & # 39; national interview & # 39; about extremism and disputed anti-immigration rhetoric, which he says causes divisions and fears.
It comes after the US president triggered a racist fight when he sent tweets telling four female Democratic politicians to go back to the countries they came from.
The president is faced with a widespread condemnation of comments that are generally interpreted as the outspoken critic Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three other female politicians, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib.
Only Mrs. Omar, from Somalia, was born abroad, and she has lived in the US since she arrived as a 10-year-old refugee in 1992.
His tweets were followed by a crowd at one of his rally & # 39; s singing & # 39; sent her back & # 39; about Mrs. Omar, one of his fiercest critics.
In his speech today in London, Mr Javid said: "I am from an immigrant family, I know what it's like to be told to go back to where I come from – and I don't think they mean Rochdale.
& # 39; To be true pro-immigration, we must also be pro-integration.
& # 39; To do this, we must confront the myths about immigration that extremists use to cause division.
& # 39; We know that the scale is exaggerated to blow up fear and that they use immigration as a proxy for race.
& # 39; Far-reaching plans to reduce immigration, as if it is automatically bad, can contribute to the stigma. & # 39;
