New UK Prime Minister: Liz Truss replaces Boris Johnson | LiveNOW from FOX

New Conservative Party head Liz Truss became UK prime minister Tuesday, and Queen Elizabeth II asked her to form a new government. Outgoing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited Queen Elizabeth II in Scotland Tuesday to officially resign from office. Johnson's meeting with the queen comes two months after he declared that he would be stepping down, and a day after Truss became her party's new leader. "I am like one of those booster rockets that has fulfilled its function,’’ Johnson said Tuesday morning as he left his office for the royal Balmoral estate. "I will now be gently re-entering the atmosphere and splashing down invisibly in some remote and obscure corner of the Pacific." Typically, the transfer of power has been officially conducted at Buckingham Palace in London but is being held in Scotland this time to ensure a swift process and limit the 96-year-old queen's travel. Johnson indicated that he will be leaving politics, comparing himself to a Roman dictator who took to farming after leaving his position.
