President Trump took to Twitter on Friday to congratulate U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson after Johnson and his Conservative Party won easily in the country’s general election, which was seen as a clear mandate to deliver on Brexit.

Johnson’s Conservative Party managed to win an overwhelming parliamentary majority in Britain’s general election, as Labour Party strongholds across the country swung dramatically to the Tories — and immediately led left-wing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to announce his intention to step down.

“Congratulations to Boris Johnson on his great WIN! Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a massive new Trade Deal after BREXIT,” Trump said. “This deal has the potential to be far bigger and more lucrative than any deal that could be made with the E.U. Celebrate Boris!”
