Transcript for Landslide election victory for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson
We head overseas to that landslide election victory for British prime minister Boris Johnson. His conservative party winning an overwhelming majority in parliament. A good sign for Johnson's Brexit plan. His friend, president trump, already congratulating him on that big win and James Longman is in London outside the prime minister's residence at 10 downing street. Good morning, James. Reporter: Yeah, good morning, Cecilia. Britain has woken up to a landslide victory by conservative party leader and trump favorite Boris Johnson. It's at biggest win for a conservative prime minister since Margaret thatcher more than 30 years ago. Now, his campaign was characterized by disinformation, I think it's fair to say but Johnson's get Brexit done slogan cut through in a huge way. It demolished the opposition in areas that voted to leave the European union three years ago and pledged to take Britain out of the eu by January 31st and that seems almost certain now. President trump tweeted his congratulations to the man he called Britain trump and said the uk and the U.S. Will now be free to strike a trade deal which could be a big boost to the U.S. Economy but it's the trade deal with the eu that must happen first. Johnson's promises to make his success at Brexit have been thin on detail and may have won an election but yet to pass that massive test. A big test ahead. Thanks. We move to the storms
