While answering Twitter users’ questions on Brexit, Hunt promised to give full rights to Europeans living in the UK and to “deliver a Brexit that works for the 48% not just the 52% — a positive, open and internationalist Brexit, Great Britain not Little England.”
UK Conservative Party members will vote soon for either Hunt or Johnson to replace outgoing Theresa May. The winner will be announced July 23.
“I know I had battles with NHS staff but they do a fantastic job and no better use for taxpayers’ money,” he said.
In response to another question, Hunt said his biggest lesson as Foreign Secretary has been: “Don’t start a war unless you know how to get out of it.”
Asked if he will invest money in Britain’s defense forces, Hunt said his priority is cyber-attacks. He tweeted, “Modern warfare is changing and wars will start with attacks on our electricity grids and internet backbone. We need to be prepared!”
Showing a jovial side throughout the Q&A, Hunt also joked that, although he has a business background, he does not plan to be “Britain’s Trump.”
He signed off the session with an image of himself eating “cold” takeout pizza on a couch.
