Boris Johnson is running scared of being seen in public with his friend Donald Trump – Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on Dominic Raab confirming there will be no Johnson-Trump bilateral, said:

“Boris Johnson is running scared of being seen in public with his friend Donald Trump because he wants to cover up their plot against our NHS.

“With Trump in the White House and Johnson in Downing Street our NHS isn’t safe.

“The only thing Boris Johnson can do to reassure the thousands of people marching today is to discontinue the UK-US trade talks until Trump amends the negotiating objectives to exclude any reference to pharmaceuticals and patient data, and explicitly rule out US companies gaining access to our public services.”
