Boris Johnson Becomes Britain’s Prime Minister

Boris Johnson took over as the Prime Minister of Britain on Wednesday, promising to get his nation out of the European Union on October 31st by any means necessary.

The former London mayor who led with Brexit campaign in 2016, won his Conservative party’ leadership to formally replace Theresa May.

It’s going to be tough for Johnson to deliver Brexit in three months’ time as he still faces opposition in Brussels against the European Union’s leadership.

Before assumed office, several pro-European ministers quit in protest at his threat to leave the EU without a divorce agreement to ease the split.

While he was on his way to meet with Queen Elizabeth II his convoy was disrupted by climate protesters.

Johnson in his first speech as Prime Minister has vowed to renegotiate a new Brexit deal. However, the first order of business for him is to announce his new cabinet.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn challenged Johnson to call a snap general election, saying he has no mandate from the public to govern.

Meanwhile, Trump was one of the first to congratulate Johnson on his victory saying he would be “great” and describing him as “Britain Trump”.
