Johnson to Trump: Keep out of UK election

But with Johnson leading polls as he faces December 12 elections, the prime minister who is hosting the London NATO summit wants Trump to mind the guard-rails, putting Trump in the unusual position of trying to avoid his normal impulse to comment on whatever he wishes.

A US official told reporters in Washington that Trump "likes Prime Minister Boris Johnson personally, but he's absolutely cognizant of not wading into other countries' elections".

Pressed further, the official added: "He also, as I suspect you know, likes Boris Johnson - prime minister Johnson, personally".

Trump waded into the election in October by saying opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn would be "so bad" for Britain and that Johnson should agree on a pact with Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage.

Asked about whether there would be a press conference, the official said: "Stay tuned".

The Conservatives will be wary of any endorsements or comments from Trump during the visit, a week before the public goes to the polls on December 12.

Leader of the UK's main opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn has previously accused Johnson's government of planning to use a potential privitisation of the country's health services as a bargaining chip in trade talks with the U.S., with Trump's upcoming visit possibly only aggravating these speculations.

"Under no circumstances will this government or any Conservative government do anything to put the NHS up for negotiation in trade talks or privatizing anything like that", he said.

However, Johnson said he would walk out of trade negotiations if including the health service was a pre-condition.
