U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he did not want to interfere in Britain's election, but that he thought current Prime Minister Boris Johnson was very capable and would do a good job.

In his letter, timed to coincide with Trump's arrival in Britain for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Corbyn said revising USA negotiating objectives would help reassure the British public that "the United States government accepts that our NHS is not for sale in any form". Britain holds its election on December 12.

"I think Boris is very capable and I think he'll do a good job", Trump said in London, where he is attending a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders.

Nonetheless, later on Friday (November 29th), a top official of Trump Administration was quoted saying to the reporters that the US President would not wade into any other country's election again, however, tensions were running high and conservatives remained fretted that Trump might have upset their election campaign during his visit to London for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit as beforementioned.

Johnson, hosting a meeting of leaders from the military alliance, also met leaders of Germany, France and Turkey on Tuesday to discuss Syria, underlining he believed it was important for the USA -led military alliance to stick together.
