"Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all". The former foreign secretary quit on Monday in protest of the prime minister's approach to Brexit.

Woody Johnson was asked on BBC Radio 4's Today whether he would facilitate a meeting if asked. "I'm not sure. That's not on the schedule, but the president makes his own schedule".

Asked about the balloon, Johnson said: "It's really kind of irrelevant to what we're trying to do and it certainly doesn't express the point of view of the British people I've met".

"What will happen now is that we will all study the white paper at the weekend and the EU27 prime ministers and Barnier task force will discuss it over the course of next week and issue a response to it".

"If the President wants to do it and feels it is appropriate to do it, he will make that decision".

Answering questions from reporters on the lawn of the White House as he and his wife Melania prepared to board the Marine One presidential helicopter, Mr Trump said: "Boris Johnson is a friend of mine".

"I have a very good relationship".


"I maybe will speak to him when I get over there", said Trump, who arrives in Britain on Thursday and is set to hold talks with May and meet with Queen Elizabeth II on Friday.

"Next week is another big dramatic week, we will have a resignation speech from Boris Johnson and we will have some crucial amendments being voted on in the House of Commons".

His comments at a press conference at Chequers came after he told the Sun on Friday that Mr Johnson has "got what it takes" to lead the UK.

Asked about the remarks, Mrs May's official spokesman said: "The Prime Minister is looking forward to showing the President the United Kingdom and is confident that he will leave with a very positive impression".

He added: "There is always turmoil in every country".

But he praised Mrs May as a "very tough negotiator" and described her as an "incredible woman" who is "doing a fantastic job".

"It's a very confident country, it's a very capable country".
