UK Politicians Hold Breath as Trump Arrives Mid-campaign

LONDON (AP) — U.S. President Donald Trump says he doesn’t want to interfere in Britain’s election campaign. But his presence in London nine days before the Dec. 12 vote is a complication for Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and ammunition for his opponents.

Trump, who attending a meeting of NATO leaders, said Tuesday he’d “stay out of the election.” He said that “I don’t want to complicate it.”

But Trump also repeated his support for Brexit and said he thought Johnson would do “a good job.”

The main opposition Labour Party claims a post-Brexit U.S.-U.K. trade deal could damage the U.K.’s state-funded National Health Service.

Labour says drug prices could go up if the U.S. demands protection for its pharmaceutical firms.

The British government says the health service won’t be on the table.
