U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called President Donald Trump a "great huge global brand," in an interview on Fox News Thursday.

When asked about a perspective on Trump from outside the U.S., Johnson praised his early-morning tweeting "no matter how rambunctious" as an effective means of communication.

"And yes, a lot of people don't like it and a lot of people relate to it," he continued. "In an age when people have been turned off by politics it's more direct and it's more communicative than a lot of previous presidents"

He then said, "I think you've got to realize the American president is just one of the huge great global brands — he is penetrating corners of the global consciousness that I think few other presidents have ever done."

Johnson has come under fire recently for his comments on Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a British-Iranian woman being held in Tehran on charges of espionage. Johnson told a British parliamentary committee last week that Zaghari-Ratcliffe was in Iran "training journalists," which Iranian state television "proof" of the accusations against her.

"I'm sorry if any words of mine have been so taken out of context or so misconstrued as to cause any kind of anxiety to the family of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, of course I am," he said in the House of Commons on Wednesday, according to BuzzFeed News. 

"But the most important thing is that I don't believe — and I have this from the Iranians themselves — that those words had any impact on the judicial process, and we are going to work flat-out to secure the release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe."
