14.02.2020 | Boris Johnson risks angering Trump as he scraps vital visit to The White House - again
Source - The Daily Express
The US President is desperate to confirm a trade deal between American and the UK before his re-election campaign begins in the Autumn. Trump’s plans were to begin trade talks with Mr Johnson during the Prime Minister’s high profile visit to the White House.
However, the Prime Minister has now repeatedly delayed and cancelled the trip which was expected to take place both in January and the end of this month.
Reportedly, it has now been decided to scrap the meeting until June - a full four months away.
Mr Johnson is expected to visit Trump’s official retreat Camp David for a summit of G7 leaders during the trip.
No 10 sources have confirmed the cancellation and insisted it was because Mr Johnson wished to drive through his promises to the nation which he pleaded during the election in December.
