He’s full bore for Brexit.
Via The Hill:
Boris Johnson, the U.K.’s former foreign secretary and a fierce backer of Brexit, will replace Theresa May as prime minister after winning the Conservative Party’s leadership contest on Tuesday.
He will become prime minister on Wednesday.
Johnson, who has been one of the most vocal proponents of the country’s planned withdrawal from the European Union, received 92,153 party votes to defeat Jeremy Hunt, who received 42,656.
“I give notice that Boris Johnson is elected as the leader of the Conservative and Unionist parties,” Parliament member Cheryl Gillian announced.
President Trump quickly congratulated Johnson.
