New UK PM Boris Johnson described as "mini-Trump"
The UK has got a new Prime Minister with the exit of Theresa May. He is Boris Johnson, who was on Tuesday elected as the PM by the Conservative party as their leader.
Boris is often described as "mini-Trump", as he is believed to hold illiberal and racist views. On his part, the US President has welcomed Boris' election. "We have a really good man who is going to be the PM of the UK now, Boris Johnson. He is tough, he is smart. They call him Britain Trump. People are saying that's a good thing. They like me over there. That's what they wanted. That's what they need," Trump commented.
Boris is already polarizing the Internet - between liberals and conservatives. Piers Morgan tweeted out, "The more the usual insufferably self-righteous, PC-crazed, virtue-signalling liberal snowflake suspects scream with horror about Boris, the more I'm warming to the idea of him as Prime Minister. Like Trump, he has a commendable talent for sending them all completely nuts."
Newt Gingrich said that the new PM will "cut through a lot of the conventional wisdom and the European bureaucrats will find he is much smarter and tougher than his predecessor."
