Donald Trump has called former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson "woke" in a surprising attack on his ally.

In a world exclusive GB News interview, the ex-US President said Boris Johnson "went liberal all of a sudden" in a "crazy" move.

Trump called Mr Johnson a "good guy" but criticised him for "changing" as he spoke to Laurence Fox.

The 76-year-old said: "Boris was a friend of mine, perhaps he still is but I haven't spoken to him in a while.

"The problem Boris has is he went liberal all of a sudden, and I think that is crazy.

"He's a good man but something happened to him, he changed, he went for windmills all over the place and he went a little bit wokier than I believe he is and I think ultimately that is the thing that got him out.

"I don't think it was the party [Conservatives] I think that was just an excuse."

Trump also spoke about the future of Britain under King Charles III, saying he expects the monarch to "do very well" despite having a strong opinion on certain matters.

The ex-US President admitted that King Charles III "feels very strongly on certain things".

He told Laurence Fox: "I think he'll probably not discuss certain elements of what he believes, in my opinion.

"I think Charles is going to do very well, he's got a great way about him, I think he did very well during the ceremony [Queen Elizabeth II's funeral]."

Despite his warm feeling towards the royal, Trump admitted he does not hold look upon Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as favourably.

He told GB News: "I'm not a fan, I was never much of a fan of her [Meghan].

"I don't get it, but I hope he's [Harry] happy, he didn't seem too happy and he doesn't seem too happy.

I thought she was disrespectful to the Queen, which is a no no, you can't do that."
