After meeting US President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Raab expressed his appreciation for the "president's warmth and enthusiasm for the UK-US relationship".

"The UK looks forward to working with our American friends to reach a free trade deal that is good for both countries, and cooperating on the common security challenges we face".

It is a major relations boost for the new United Kingdom top team as they seek to boost United Kingdom trade after Brexit.

No further details of the meeting with Mr Trump were immediately available.

Mr Raab had only been scheduled to meet Vice President Mike Pence.

He flew into the United States capital following talks on Tuesday in Toronto with Canadian foreign minister Chrystia Freeland and is due to travel on to Mexico following his meetings in the U.S. capital.

Meanwhile, Britain's International Trade Secretary Liz Truss, travelling with Raab, had lined up meetings with top American officials including Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

Mr Pompeo spoke about his warning to Mr Raab last night, saying: "We also talked about the key issue of the sovereign decision about who will build its 5G infrastructure".

Raab said Johnson and his Cabinet are "absolutely resolved, determined" to leave the European Union at the end of October with or without a deal to soften its effects.

"We will manage the risks come what may". Yesterday Mr Johnson was photographed with a smiling King Abdullah II of Jordan as the Prime Minister headhunts prospective trade partners for a post-Brexit Britain.
