WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Friday that Boris Johnson’s recent victory in the United Kingdom’s general election means a lot of U.S. trade with the nation.

Results from the 650 parliamentary constituencies around the United Kingdom showed that Johnson’s Conservative Party had trounced its main opponent, winning 365 seats to the Labour Party’s 203, the best win for the Conservatives since 1987.
