Margaret Thatcher aide Nile Gardiner talked about how the UK's new prime minister Liz Truss may upset U.S. President Biden's socialist agenda with her right-leaning politics.

I think expectations are very high for the new prime minister," Gardiner said on Tuesday's edition of "Just the News, Not Noise."

"She is a Thatcherite," Gardiner stated. "She's a strong conservative. She has vowed to to lead Britain  with conservative principles and policies. So everything she said so far has been very encouraging. She has modeled herself on Margaret Thatcher."

Gardiner referred to Truss as the opposite of U.S. President Joe Biden. 

"It's a very good thing to see the complete opposite of Joe Biden, who is pushing socialist style policies," Gardiner continued. "Those have been very destructive, as we've seen in many other parts of the world."

Despite Boris Johnson no longer being prime minister, Gardiner still believes that he will continue to be involved in politics.

"If it wasn't for Boris Johnson, we wouldn't have Brexit today," Gardiner credited the former prime minister. "We wouldn't be free from the shackles of the European Union. So I think we owe a great debt of gratitude to Boris Johnson for that.

"I had the privilege of meeting Boris on many occasions," Gardiner concluded. "I hosted him here in Washington. He's a very, very nice fella. He's a good man. I will miss Boris Johnson as prime minister. I'm sure he will be back in politics at some stage."
