Theresa May, the UK new prime minister has appointed Boris Johnson as UK Foreign Affairs Minister. Like US presidential candidate Donald Trump, Boris Johnson was born in New York City. They have matching hairdos and are very bombastic. They also both supported the UK exit from the European Union, or Brexit.
