Donald Trump has said he has 'no thoughts' on the UK General Election on the first day of his NATO visit to London amid rising tensions over US involvement in the NHS and a political row over the London Bridge terror attack.
The US President was probed at a press conference with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg but refused to give anything away and said he 'didn't want to complicate it'.
Trump is in the UK for a NATO summit, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson is keeping his distance, amid nervousness in Tory HQ that he will say something controversial and hurt the PM's campaign.
The US leader said he is 'staying out' of the December 12 election and that he 'thinks Boris will do a good job'.
He denied rumours that the NHS could be on the table in post-Brexit trade talks and said he has 'nothing to do with it' and has 'never even thought about it'.
Asked if he could work with Jeremy Corbyn and Labour government he said he could 'work with anyone', before declaring is a 'fan of Brexit' and that he 'called it the day before'.
This afternoon he will have tea with Prince Charles and Camilla before a reception for NATO leaders with the Queen at Buckingham Palace and another at Downing Street.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn went all out to 'weaponise' the President's arrival and yesterday by releasing a video blaming Britain's close relationship with the US for the London Bridge terror attacks.
Grilled on if he could work with Corbyn in No10, Trump replied: 'I can work with anybody, I'm a very easy person to work with.'
On the NHS he added: 'We wouldn't want to if you handed it to us on a silver-platter, we want nothing to do with it.'
Ahead of this morning's meeting, PM Mr Johnson appealed for unity among the leaders of the 29 member states - also including Germany's Angela Merkel, Frances Emmanuel Macron and Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdoğan - amid differences over Syria.
The Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will formally greet NATO leaders at this evening's reception, which marks 70 years of the alliance.
Charles and the Monarch will then join the politicians for a group photograph.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been desperately trying to 'weaponise' the Prime Minister's ties to the US president as he tries to overhaul the Tory advantage in the polls.
In an extraordinary campaign video yesterday, he effectively blamed the Special Relationship for the London Bridge terror attack.
The footage showed images including flowers next to the road sign in the capital, with a soundtrack of Mr Corbyn condemning Western aggression for fuelling terrorism and emotional music.
Mr Corbyn tweeted the video along with a message that Mr Johnson should 'stop clinging on to Donald Trump's coat-tails'.
The Labour leader has a long record of opposing US influence throughout 30 years as a relatively obscure Labour backbencher.
He has previously insisted the NATO military alliance should have been scrapped decades ago, dismissed Britain's 'global role', and said nuclear weapons should be unilaterally given up.
Last week MailOnline highlighted a 2014 article by Mr Corbyn's closest aide, Seamus Milne, branding NATO a 'colonial expeditionary force' and calling for US bases in the UK to be closed and personnel sent home.
