Trump says he and Johnson will meet during the two-day North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders' meeting in London, although the White House has not announced a sit-down.

The piece includes this: "Social inequality, resolving Brexit, investment in the struggling National Health Service - these are some of the issues Britain's opposition Labour Party had hoped would top the agenda during the election campaign".

However, in recent times the alliance has come under some pressure with Trump insisting member-countries pitch in more funds and French President Emmanuel Macron recently describing the alliance as suffering from brain death.

He also sidestepped a question about whether Trump was good for Britain, instead emphasising the strength of transatlantic ties - while avoiding using Trump's name.

Boris Johnson has enjoyed consistent double digit leads over Jeremy Corbyn on story of the initiate of the election advertising and marketing and marketing campaign.

Johnson, for his part, slammed Labour's claims as "total nonsense", adding that he had given a "cast-iron guarantee" that the NHS would not on the table in any discussions with the U.S. over a deal.

The PM is reportedly swerving a lunch with Mr Trump at the summit and will send Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab in his place, with a clash over a press conference said to be the reason.

Johnson's Conservative Party are ahead in opinion polls, but it remains unclear whether they are far enough in front to form the majority government Johnson requires to take Britain out of the European Union in January.
