BIARRITZ, France (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday said Boris Johnson would be a great British prime minister and that he had been waiting six years for him to become the country’s leader.

“I really believe that Boris Johnson will be a great prime minister, we like each other and we had a great two and a half day,” Trump told a news conference at the G7 summit in France.

“I’ve been waiting for him to be prime minister for about six years. I told him ‘what took you so long?’,” he said
