Boris Johnson Refers To Trump As “Previous President”

Sky News reports:

Boris Johnson has branded Donald Trump the “previous president” and hailed his “refreshing” conversation with successor Joe Biden. Mr Trump is continuing to claim he won last week’s US presidential election and has made multiple unsubstantiated claims of fraud.

But the prime minister consigned Mr Trump’s presidency to the history books on Wednesday, as he told MPs of his “excellent” phone call with Mr Biden.

Mr Johnson said he agreed with the US president-elect that their two countries should “once again” co-operate on various global issues. “I had and have a good relationship with the previous president – I do not resile from that,” the prime minister said.
