Piers Morgan has heavily criticised President Donald Trump in recent months over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, the resultant economic downturn and his response to the death of George Floyd. But in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk the GMB presenter said a Trump victory in the November Presidential election would be the best outcome for the UK.
Mr Morgan, who says he has been friends with Mr Trump for 13 years, told this website the US President views the UK very favourably.
The journalist also revealed he believes a Trump victory would be better for the UK than a win by Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
When discussing a Trump victory, he said: “I think it would be quite good for a UK trade deal.
“I think we would probably be better off in that regards than if Biden wins.

“In that sense I would think from Brexit and our trading relationship with the Americans a Trump win would be better.”
Mr Morgan added he believed a Biden victory could turn out to be rather “tricky” for Boris Johnson, as the Democrat is likely to favour the EU over Britain.
He said: “It’s going to be tricky because Joe Biden has been pro-European, and I think he will be more supportive of the European Union.
“Plus Boris has been quite critical of the Democrats and of Biden, which would make life a little bit more difficult for him.”
