President Trump’s national security adviser said he told British Prime Minister Boris Johnson the administration would strongly support the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union in late October—deal or no deal.
John Bolton was the highest level U.S. official to meet with Mr. Johnson during a visit Monday to London. Mr. Bolton held meetings with the country’s new government looking to kick-start trade and defense talks and convey the administration’s support amid uncertainty about what Britain’s exit from the EU would look like.
Mr. Bolton told reporters that if Mr. Johnson decided to exit from the EU without a deal on Oct. 31, “We are supporting that enthusiastically.” He said he told British officials: “That’s what I’m trying to convey. We’re with you, we’re with you.”
