Donald Trump has indicated Boris Johnson is his preferred Conservative leadership candidate amid growing White House frustration over Brexit.

The US President described him as a “friend” for whom he had “a lot of respect”, stopping short from formally endorsing the former foreign secretary.

Trump is expected to hold private talks with  Johnson during next week’s state visit in what would be a notable breach of convention.
