UK’S SPECIAL ROLE: UK has ‘restraining influence’ on Donald Trump- Boris Johnson.
We in the UK do not agree, by any means, with everything that Washington currently says. It is very important to understand that when Theresa May goes to meet the president today, as she will in Hamburg … our role is to represent our own point of view.
“Whether it’s on Nato, climate change, the Iran nuclear accord, it is the UK that is actually helping, we think, to mitigate, to get some of those American attitudes and policies that are currently coming out of the White House into a better place. If you look at the last 12 months or so there has been a great deal of progress.”
