He also said if Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage teamed up with Mr Johnson they would be an ‘unstoppable force’.
Despite his kind words for the PM, he criticised his Brexit deal, claiming it hinders trade with the US, and said he had discussed with Mr Johnson the new agreement brokered with Brussels .
Giving his views ahead of the General Election, Mr Trump said: ‘Corbyn would be so bad for your country, he’d be so bad, he’d take you on such a bad way. He’d take you into such bad places.
‘Your country has tremendous potential. It’s a great country.’
Talking about Mr Johnson, he said: ‘When you are the president of the United States you have great relationships with many of the leaders, including Boris, he’s a fantastic man, and I think he’s the exact right guy for the times.
‘And I know that you and him will end up doing something that could be terrific if you and he get together as, you know, an unstoppable force.’
