Dec 22 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump has invited British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to visit him in the White House in the new year, Britain's Sunday Times newspaper reported

The report added that Trump’s invitation to Johnson was made after the British prime minister’s recent election win. Formal discussions on the exact timing of Johnson’s visit are yet to held, the newspaper reported, citing Downing Street sources.

“Some potential dates have been floated in mid-January but nothing has yet been formally agreed.
