UK’s Johnson Says He Would Withhold $50 Billion Brexit Payment

According to a report by Reuters, Boris Johnson, the leading candidate to replace Theresa May as Britain's prime minister, said that he would withhold a previously agreed 50 billion dollar Brexit payment until the European Union offers Britain better exit terms. The EU has said that it will not reopen negotiations of the deal that was reached with May last year, which British lawmakers have rejected three times, prompting May to announce her resignation as Prime Minister.
