President Donald Trump on Monday praised “great” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson after his controversial move to suspend parliament.

Trump said the suspension — which critics call a deliberate attempt to stymie democratic opposition to Brexit — will make it “very hard” for Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn to seek a no-confidence vote against Johnson.

“Especially in light of the fact that Boris is exactly what the U.K. has been looking for, & will prove to be ‘a great one!’ Love U.K.,” Trump tweeted.
