The boost for Boris Johnson came as Mr Bolton held talks in No 10 with the embattled new PM.

Mr Bolton said the White House will back the UK “enthusiastically” whatever the Brexit outcome. He said: “That’s my message. We’re with you, we’re with you.”

He said deals could be tied up rapidly in manufacturing and industry, while more complex sectors such as financial services would take longer.

Mr Bolton named car-making as an example, raising the prospect of cheaper American cars in the UK as early as next year.
