Donald Trump Comments UK PM’s Brexit Deal Good For EU But Not For US-UK Trade

According to the US President Donald Trump, the planning of Brexit agreement by Theresa May resonates like a significant deal for the EU but it would be the hindrance between the trade of UK and US. Before the tour of Mississippi, talking to the reporters, the US President said the deal had been secured by Mrs May with Brussels may not be proved as good for trade.

He said, “I think we have to take a look at seriously whether or not the UK is allowed to trade because you know right now, if you look at the deal they may not be able to trade with us. That wouldn’t be a good thing. I don’t think they meant that, I don’t think the prime minister meant that and hopefully, she’ll be able to do something about that but right now as the deal stands they may not be able to trade with the US and I don’t think they want that at all, that would be a very big negative for the deal”.

In response to the comments of Trump, a representative for the UK Prime minister said that under the current Brexit agreement, the UK will be capable to inscribe trade deals. She included that the government had already been “laying the groundwork” for an “ambitious ” business agreement with the US.

Mrs May has expensed the last 20 months pitching an exit agreement with the EU and now confronts a scrap to get her deal through the House of Commons. A significant vote is set to eventuate on 11th December.

Being a supporter of the Best for Britain campaign, the Labour MP Tulip Siddiq stated the remarks of  Trump as a “major blow” for the prime minister. She said, “This is a Brexit bombshell and it has blown apart the whole government’s post-Brexit trade strategy. Even Donald Trump, not the sharpest tool in the box, knows this deal is a bad deal. Theresa May promised a Global Britain, but her Brexit is globally unpopular. Time to ditch this deal and let the people decide through a people’s vote”.
