Speaking to reporters early Tuesday alongside Jens Stoltenberg, NATO’s secretary general, Trump stayed away from the upcoming vote.

“It’s going to be a very important election for this great country,” he said. “But I have no thoughts on it.”

Later, he added: “I stay out of it — I think Boris is very capable and will do a good job.”

A survey in the U.K. from Nov. 2018 to Nov. 2019 found 67 percent of people have a negative opinion of Trump, according to the international polling firm YouGov in London.
