Donald Trump has said the UK is in "turmoil" and suggested his meeting with Vladimir Putin may be "the easiest" out of a list of coming engagements, which will kick off with the Nato summit tomorrow. 

Speaking to journalists in front of the White House before getting onto Marine One, his official helicopter, en route to Belgium for the summit, the US President said he hoped to meet the former foreign secretary Boris Johnson - who is "a friend of mine", adding the UK "certainly have a lot of things going on".

Trump spoke warmly of Boris Johnson, the foreign secretary and Brexit leader who resigned, saying he had been ‘very supportive’.

The UK is in " turmoil " and "it is up to the people" whether Theresa May stays as prime minister, Donald Trump has said ahead of his first visit to the country as US President.

Trump said: 

The UK, that’s a situation that’s been going on for a long time. I have Nato, I have the UK, which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all, who would think? Who would think? But the UK certainly - they certainly have a lot of things going on.

In response to a question which was inaudible above the sound of the helicopter, the US president said:

Boris Johnson is a friend of mine, he’s been very, very nice to me, very supportive. And I maybe will speak to him when I get over there. I like Boris Johnson, I’ve always liked him.

Johnson quit yesterday over Theresa May's Chequers plan, which he claimed would make the UK "a colony". In his resignation letter, the former Cabinet minister claimed the Brexit "dream is dying".
