UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson with US president Joe Biden in The White House last night
“We’re going to talk a little bit about trade today and we’re going to have to work that through.
“But on the (Northern Ireland) protocols I feel very strongly on those.
“We spent an enormous amount of time and effort, the United States, it was a major bipartisan effort made.
“And I would not at all like to see, nor I might add would many of my Republican colleagues like to see, a change in the Irish accords, the end result having a closed border in Ireland.”
