Ignoring Trump "advice" on Brexit : Theresa May's Brexit plan could 'kill' US trade deal

Ignoring Trump "advice" on Brexit
US President Donald Trump said a free trade deal with Britain might be impossible if London went ahead with Prime Minister Theresa May’s proposals for post-Brexit ties with the European Union.

In an interview with Britain's Sun newspaper, Mr Trump said Mrs May's plans for a business-friendly Brexit would leave it too close to the EU to allow a new trans-Atlantic trade deal to be struck.

Just hours earlier at a dinner to mark Mr Trump's first visit to Britain as president, Mrs May made a direct pitch for a deal with Washington.

She praised the friendship between the two allies, glossing over President Trump's previous remarks that Britain was a "hot spot" in turmoil over Brexit.

Referring to Mrs May’s Brexit proposals, Mr Trump told the newspaper, "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal."

Mr Trump chastised the Mrs May for ignoring his advice on Brexit and not making a credible threat to walk away from talks.
