Donald Trump tells May her Brexit plan would kill United States trade deal

Donald Trump tells May her Brexit plan would kill United States trade deal

What he said about.

According to Politico, the key question is whether May's Tory opponents will try to keep pressure on May or whether they have the numbers and the intention to damage her government in an effort to get the Brexit they feel voters expect.

Mr Trump was scathing about the white paper Brexit deal put forward by Mrs May, but nice about her on a personal level.

Sending a direct warning to the EU, Mr Gill said: "If the EU then demanded we couldn't begin negotiations with other countries we should refuse to apply the EU's tariffs for them on products ultimately destined for the continent".

"She wanted to go a different route".

Trump noted that recent cabinet resignations in May's administration stemmed from opposition to her plan, which is seen by critics as keeping the government too closely aligned with the European Union - after Brits voted to operate their own independent economy starting eight months from now. And that is fine.

May faces a huge task trying to persuade European Union negotiators to accept that the proposals are viable, while also keeping her Conservative party and Parliament on side. "But it is too bad what is going on".

It would also make free trade deals with countries with different standards, like the United States of America, much less likely.

While Trump allowed that May was "a nice person", he heaped praise on former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who quit this week as part of a cabinet shakeup over Brexit, and said he would make "a great prime minister". "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", he said.

His visit comes as the government published its plans for the UK's relations with the European Union after Brexit. And I said Putin maybe the easiest of them all.

Of Johnson, he said: "I have a lot of respect for Boris".

Effectively staying in the single market for goods, but not services, is unlikely to be an attractive proposition for the EU.

"He is destroying all the norms of what used to be a great democracy in America and so I'm really concerned about my country and I'm here now and so this is where I have the chance to protest him".

"I don't know (if) that is what they voted for", he added.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip May greet US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at Blenheim Palace on July 12, 2018 in Woodstock, England. He has done a awful job.

Trump also had harsh words for current London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a fervent critic of the president, saying Khan "has done a awful job" running Europe's third-largest city.

Mr Khan has responded by supporting Londoners' "right to protest" the visit, and City Hall approved a blimp shaped like the president as a baby, which will fly over parliament this weekend. "Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future", she said. Anyone who takes a close look, however, will see that this largely corresponds to an approach that the Swiss government is now trying out. Look at what is going on in London. I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism. "I think it changed the fabric of Europe", Mr. Trump said.

He added: 'We think that now the clear negotiation position is the first time in six months there is clarity coming from the British government.

"I think what's happened to Europe is a shame".

The government has proposed expanding the EU's existing so-called "equivalence" regime, which now covers access for non-EU partners like Japan and the United States to the region's financial services markets.

For so many years she has represented her country, she has really never made a mistake.

She stressed that the United States and UK are "not just the closest of allies, but the dearest of friends".

She said: "Many of the intentions are reassuring". I really look forward to meeting her.
