PM has 'every confidence in the checks and balances of the US constitution'

Boris Johnson has said he has “every confidence in the checks and balances of the US constitution” as Donald Trump makes unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud in the country’s election.

The US president has been an ally of Mr Johnson after backing him to become prime minister and supporting his position on Brexit.

Asked if he will miss working with Mr Trump if he loses the election, Mr Johnson said: “Lets be clear, the prime minister of the United Kingdom is always going to work very closely with whoever is president of the United States, and that’s going to be the case whatever the outcome of this election.”

However he added: “I don’t think at this stage you’d expect any foreign international leader to comment on the democratic processes of a friendly country.”
