Trump and Boris Johnson talked about Brexit

Both leaders held a telephone conversation in which they talked about the latest news regarding the United Kingdom's departure from the European Union

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, held a telephone conversation with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday about the latest news related to the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union.

The White House reported in a statement that in the phone call Johnson provided Trump with an update on Brexit.

In addition, both leaders talked about a “wide range of business and economic issues” and Trump “has expressed great enthusiasm for his next meeting with the Prime Minister at the G7 Summit” to be held in the French city of Biarritz.

The White House National Security adviser told Johnson last week that Trump wants London to successfully leave the block on October 31st, and that Washington is prepared to work quickly on a bilateral free trade agreement.

The British Prime Minister wants to renegotiate with the European Union (EU) the terms of the exit agreement before October 31st, date for Brexit, although the block has stressed that it will not modify the parts of the pact that the ‘premier’ wants to change.
