“The NHS is a religion in the UK. That’s where the real red line is,” said Sam Lowe, a senior research fellow at the Centre for European Reform in London. “If the U.S. is saying: ‘Pay more for medicine,’ that’s quite difficult to get past the Treasury and the taxpayers.” That would provide short-term political victories for both Britain’s Johnson and Trump, said Lowe. Trump is seeking re-election in November.
