Boris Johnson turned down a personal meeting with Trump

US President Trump had a 20 minute phone call with Boris Johnson, the favorite to replace Theresa May as British prime minister, on Tuesday. Johnson, however, declined a face-to-face meeting due to a prior commitment. Trump praised Johnson just before he arrived in Britain for this week’s state visit, saying he thought he would do a ’very good job’ as the next prime minister.

Notice how the majority of headlines lead you to believe it was an intentional snub. I didn't see anything in the stories that lead me to believe there was any animosity. Given how polarizing Trump is in the UK, it might have been a calculated move on Johnson's part, at least until he has power. Or maybe he really is busy, considering the upheaval from last week.
