U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom Woody Johnson predicted President Donald Trump and new British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will enjoy a great relationship.

The ambassador made his comments during an interview with the BBC on Friday.

"The new relationship between your new prime minister and our president ... it's going to be sensational," he said. "Their leadership has a lot in common. Both have their own style but similarities — a clear vision of what they want to accomplish."

"The president is going to try and move the ball forwards — the UK is our most important ally in security and prosperity. He knows that."

In 2015, Boris Johnson accused Trump of "stupefying ignorance" and said Trump was "unfit to hold the office of president of the United States."

In the BBC interview, Woody Johnson appeared to downplay past differences.

"We're going to have bumps in the road, no question, but we are two great countries," he said.

He noted both men have a desire to "get things done," the BBC reported.
