President Trump Weighs in on UK Election

President Donald Trump weighed in on Britain's general election on Friday by congratulating Boris Johnson for his "great WIN!"
“Congratulations to Boris Johnson on his great WIN!” tweeted President Trump who has been in favor of the Brexit movement.
“Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a massive new Trade Deal after BREXIT. This deal has the potential to be far bigger and more lucrative than any deal that could be made with the EU,” the President added.
Check out what Breitbart reported:
While the European Union now wades into all sorts of national policy issues, it was originally conceived as a customs union — meaning that one of the conditions of membership is surrendering control over national trade policy to the bloc’s central authorities.
Britain, traditionally a global trading nation and the only EU member-state to do more trade outside the bloc than inside it, has therefore been prevented from striking free trade agreements with key partners such as Australia, New Zealand, and, of course, the United States of America.
On Thursday, Boris Johnson's Conservative party won in a landslide victory, earning a large majority of the parliamentary seats in the UK.
It only took a few hours after the election for Democrats to blame "Russian collusion" for their landslide defeat. Over the past few years, Democrats in the United States have peddled the "Russian collusion" conspiracy theory to explain why President Donald Trump won in 2016.
After the Mueller report was released, it became clear that there was no collusion at all with Russia and that the Russian government didn't even change a single vote.
Now Democrats are taking their collusion conspiracy theories overseas to the UK.
“British political system has become thoroughly compromised by Russian influence," said Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch.
“The efforts in both countries had much in common. They were aided by a transatlantic cast of characters loosely organized around the Trump and Brexit campaigns. Many of them worked in concert and interacted with Russians close to the Kremlin. The outcome in both countries was also eerily similar,” they continued. “Both countries have been at war with themselves in the three years since, pulling them back from the international stage at a time when Putin has consolidated his position in Crimea, Ukraine, Syria and beyond.”
Things got even more bizarre when the pair actually cited their work with Fusion GPS which has been proven to be a total scam of a company that released fake reports.
“Our Washington-based research firm, Fusion GPS, conducted much of the early investigations into Russia’s support of the Trump campaign, aided by our colleague Christopher Steele, the former head of MI6’s Russia desk. While our initial focus was on Russian meddling in US politics, it has since become increasingly clear that Britain’s political system has also been deeply affected by Russian influence operations,” Simpson and Fritsch said.
