Boris Johnson = Donald Trump? Not Really
Now that Boris Johnson has been elected the leader of the Conservative Party and the new prime minister of the United Kingdom, Glyn Morgan, associate professor of professor science at the Maxwell School, offered some reactions on how Prime Minister Boris Johnson compares to President Donald Trump. The two leaders are often compared to one another, but Prof. Morgan said the two men are actually very different.

However, President Trump is an enthusiastic bigot, who possesses an Archie Bunker-like anger about things he sees on Fox News. Johnson’s anger arises only when he is challenged or obstructed. They are two very different brands of leaders from hell. Johnson occupies a much more precarious position than Trump. The Tories barely have a majority in Parliament and half a dozen of them have said they wouldn’t support him. Johnson could well be out of office by November. That is why I think he will call an election soon. He needs a bigger parliamentary majority. Will he get one? Who knows. The British party system has broken down and four different parties all have roughly equal support in the polls.”
