The US president is said to be committed to an "ambitious free trade agreement", with formal talks to begin after Brexit.
Donald Trump has said he and Boris Johnson have already started working on a free trade deal between the US and the UK.
The US president said the pair had spoken since Mr Johnson became prime minister and that they plan to spend time together to formulate an agreement.
Downing Street confirmed that talks between the two leaders had taken place on Friday evening and that they would meet at a G7 summit in Biarritz, France, next month.
Number 10 said Mr Trump had expressed his commitment to an "ambitious free trade agreement", with formal talks to begin "as soon as possible after Britain leaves the EU".
In another Friday night phone call, Downing Street said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also pledged to work towards a "smooth transition" to a free trade agreement with the UK after Brexit.
The pair will meet at a G7 summit in France next month.
Mr Johnson will be hoping it means talks towards both begin in earnest on 1 November, having pledged that Brexit will happen "do or die" on the current Halloween deadline.
Discussions over UK-US relations are likely to have begun in advance of Mr Johnson entering Number 10, as the PM had a phone call with Mr Trump before his leadership victory was confirmed.

Perhaps other European countries that are among the first to do as the UK will can also join in on this?
Next add Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korda, all of SE Asia, India ... maybe others.
Make England Great Again (MEGA).
Those danged Kordans. Don’t let them dog sit for you.
EU scum saddened.
It should be simply “free trade” with the U.K., no exclusions, no exemptions, just an open U.S.-U.K. market. Next we can expand it to Canada, and end all the stupid restrictions in NAFTA between U.S. and Canada. Then we can work to add Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, extending the “anglosphere” in absolutely free trade.
You can also be sure that Trump and Boris are talking about Iran, and what to do about it.
Something’s going to happen on that file, soon. Necessarily.
The Winning feels SO good!!
Get Boris Johnson to Washington, give him a royal welcome and do everything we can to support him.
Yurp apologists will be along soon to tell us it can’t work, Britain is trapped in thrall to the EU, the UK will break apart, etc etc.
“Perhaps other European countries that are among the first to do as the UK will can also join in on this?”
Just so long as we leave out Germany! Tariff the $hit out of their Nazi Thunderbirds and other Krautmobiles until they fire Frau Farbisa and pay up their complete obligation to NATO. Furthermore, I’d be really slow to do anything with the Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys as well.
I agree, full state visit
I, as above, concur!
Make Britain Great Again
I was looking more along the MAGA-leaning Eastern European countries lines, many of whom love Trump, along with ital and a few other Western European countries.
