President Trump will meet with new UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson at the upcoming G-7 summit in France. This will be the first meeting between the world leaders.

Reports have indicated that the two leaders have spoken numerous times since Johnson became Prime Minister.

According to The Hill:

President Trump will meet with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Sunday morning on the sidelines of the Group of Seven (G-7) summit in France, according to a senior administration official, one of several bilateral meetings at the summit.

Trump plans to have breakfast with Johnson in what is expected to be the first meeting between the two leaders since the outspoken British politician took over as the United Kingdom's prime minister in July following Prime Minister Theresa May's exit.

...

The two are expected to discuss the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union, commonly known as Brexit, as well the prospect of brokering a bilateral free trade agreement between the U.S. and Britain, Trump administration officials told reporters on Thursday.

Trump will also meet with French President Emmanuel Macron, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeauat the summit.

The trade deal that could be made with the UK has gained importance recently and could lead to a smoother transition to autonomy for a major ally.
