What did he say about Nigel Farage and Corbyn?
In the interview, Trump also said Corbyn would take Britain to “such bad places” if he were to win the December 12 election.
But heaping praise on Boris, Trump said: “I have great relationships with many of the leaders, including Boris who’s a fantastic man – I think he’s the exact right guy for the times.
“I know that you and him will end up doing something that could be terrific – if you and he get together it’s [an] unstoppable force.
“Corbyn would be so bad for your country, he’d be so bad, he’d take you in such a bad way.
“He’d take you into such bad places. But your country has tremendous potential, it’s a great country.”
But Corbyn immediately fired back – accusing Trump of trying to interfere in the election to get his “friend” Boris re-elected.
Boris and Trump have famously got on incredibly well. The US President backed him to become PM before he got into office, and the pair talk on the phone regularly.
What did he say about the NHS?
Corbyn accused Boris of a secret “sell out” deal where American firms would get access to our health service in a post-Brexit trade deal.]
But Boris has insisted it’s completely off the table and won’t happen. He also kicked off his election campaign today with a visit to a hospital getting billions of pounds worth of extra funding.
The NHS looks set to be a dominating feature of the campaign ahead of December’s election.
He rubbished the NHS claims, telling LBC: “We wouldnt even be involved in it, were trying to fix our own health service.
“Its not for us to have anything to do with your health service. Were just talking about trade.
