Boris Johnson to become next U.K. Prime Minister

Current U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May is set to step down on Wednesday and Boris Johnson will be taking over after winning the Conservative Party leadership contest on Tuesday.

In a lively press conference at Westminster, Johnson said ““I say to all the doubters: Dude, we are going to energise the country, we are going to get Brexit done.”

Johnson won 66% of the vote, with a turnout of 87.4% and beat out Jeremy Hunt in the election.

President Trump, who was often critical of May, congratulated Johnson on the win.

“Congratulations to Boris Johnson on becoming the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He will be great!” Trump tweeted.
