ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson on Monday (November 14) called Donald Trump a "deal maker" and urged people not to pre-judge U.S. president-elect. Speaking to reporters in Brussels, Johnson called Trump a "deal maker" who could have a positive effect on both Britain and Europe. "I think there's a lot to be positive about and it's very important not to pre-judge the president-elect or his administration. It's only a few days since the election has taken place. I think we all need to wait and see what they come up with, but I think we should regard it as a moment of opportunity," said Johnson. "Donald Trump, as I have said before, is a deal maker and I think that can be a good thing for Britain, but he can also be a good thing for Europe and that's, I think, what we need to focus on today," he continued to say. Johnson also said there are big changes going on in the world and people who feel they haven't been properly listened to are starting to make their voices heard. It is time to listen to those people, he added.
