Trump isn't running in Britain's election. That hasn't stopped him from getting in the middle.

Donald Trump just can’t seem to stay away from British politics. He’s fired off comments on topics including Brexit, his low opinion of a British ambassador, and how his Trump-branded golf course in Scotland “furthers U.K. relations.”

So there’s little surprise that the American president is playing an outsize role in Britain’s upcoming elections — for good or bad, depending.

In Britain, more than any other country aside from the United States, Trump has sought to bolster his political allies and trash his detractors.

In so doing, he has blithely crossed traditional red lines. In late October, Trump phoned in to a talk radio show hosted by a friend, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, to dump on leftist Labour Party head Jeremy Corbyn.

2. Trump himself is the red line!

And he has crossed so many red lines already, all you see is red now-a-days.

3. The Russians helped him

it makes perfect sense that he should help Boris.

Which is a Russian name so it comes full circle.

4. he should hold rallies in London, for Johnson

If TrumPutin holds 3 rallies, there will be no Brexit.

5. Yes, by all means Donald, please insert your fecal touch into the British elections.

That might be just the thing to get rid of Boris.
