‘Britain Trump’ trends on Twitter in UK after president’s comments on Boris Johnson

The phrase “Britain Trump” sat near the top of Twitter’s list of trending terms in the United Kingdom on Tuesday after President Trump referred to incoming British Prime Minister Boris Johnson by the term during a speech.
“Britain Trump” was in the second-highest spot on Twitter’s list Tuesday afternoon after Trump praised the winner of the Conservative Party’s leadership race, Johnson, who became the incoming prime minister earlier in the day.
During a speech to the conservative youth group Turning Point USA, Trump compared himself to the former mayor of London, whom he called a “good man.”
“We have a really good man who’s going to be the prime minister of the U.K. now, Boris Johnson. Good man. He’s tough, and he’s smart,” Trump said Tuesday.
“They’re saying ‘Britain Trump.’ They call him Britain Trump, and people are saying that’s a good thing. They like me over there. That’s what they wanted. That’s what they need,” he added.
