LONDON (Reuters) - U.S President Donald Trump said it was looking like “a big win” for Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the British election.

Johnson’s Conservative Party was on course for a resounding victory in Britain’s election after voters backed his bid to deliver Brexit on Jan. 31, the country’s most significant geopolitical move in 70 years.

“Looking like a big win for Boris in the U.K.!,” Trump said on Twitter.
