Trump Is Heading to London. Boris Johnson Is Not on His Calendar.

President Trump barreled into London like a bowling ball on his first trip to Britain as president last year, testing the special relationship by criticizing then-Prime Minister Theresa May’s approach to Brexit in the pages of The Sun ahead of his visit while praising her political rival at the time, Boris Johnson.

Mr. Trump is heading to London again next week, this time for a NATO summit marking the alliance’s 70th anniversary. Mrs. May is long gone from Downing Street. Mr. Johnson, still a favorite of the president, is prime minister and facing his own unpredictable election a little over a week after the NATO gathering on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Friday, senior administration officials said the visit will include one-on-one meetings with President Emmanuel Macron of France, who recently warned about the “brain death” of NATO and suggested that Europe can no longer assume unwavering support from the United States. Mr. Trump will also meet with Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany, and attend a reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by Queen Elizabeth II.

Conspicuous for his absence from the list was Mr. Johnson. It is unusual for the president not to participate in a bilateral meeting with the leader of NATO’s host country. While the president’s schedule was still in flux, one official said the reason for not scheduling a meeting was that Mr. Trump was “very conscious of the fact that we do not interfere” in other country’s elections.

3. Maybe Bamboozle Boris was watching Kentucky and other elections here...

where tRump tried to help and caused disasters for local GOP. Boris sez "keep your ass away from us Tories, you're toxic".

Trump sure as hell didn't hesitate to comment during past UK elections and parliamentary debates......

It's pretty bad when Putin's two favorite sons can't get along......

Who the fuck believes this. Or believes the river of shit is not running over the levees.

10. Just parroting his handler, Putin.

'Cause that's what his handler says in situations like this. He's learned well, has Comrade Trump.

15. It never stopped him in Israel

The difference is, Bibi (and his sycophants) love Trump, but Trump being seen with his buddy Boris could hurt Boris.

And you know he will.

7. I bet he will meet with his mentor Putin clandestinely.

Got to get his marching orders. I bet the intelligence agencies have been lisuening in on his domestic calls and he needs more of a private channel to find out what he must do with the investigations. Menace Traitor MF45 is getting scared. And needs daddy vlad to reassure him.

12. Vlad will have to reassure him....

that he can still be re-elected with 7 million or so fewer votes that his democratic challenger. He got past Hillary with 3 million fewer votes, but it's going to be more of a challenge to Vlad's computer experts this time around. Good thing they still have that archaic Electoral College to work with. The will of the people must not be taken seriously.

13. Poor Londoners.

I feel somehow guilty for inflicting him upon them. Even though I didn't and never would vote for him, I still feel responsible.

14. That could be at Johnson's request, actually.

Boris Johnson is having enough trouble without adding making nice to Donwald to the mix. I suspect Trump was asked not to push for a face-to-face. Being friends with Trump is not an asset in most places, I think.
