May's Brexit plan to scupper Britain-US trade deal

May's Brexit plan to scupper Britain-US trade deal

In an interview on the Andrew Marr Show on BBC TV on Sunday, the Prime Minister revealed Donald Trump had advised her to take legal action against the European Union during the Brexit negotiations.

Though Trump later contradicted his comments by then promising a great United States trade deal, the president made clear his admiration for the 54-yearold Johnson, who he said would one day make a great British prime minister.

Britain's Prime Minister, Theresa May, appears on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show in London Thomson Reuters LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May will on Monday seek to reassure aviation bosses that her under-fire Brexit plan won't disrupt their supply chains, and promise that the industry will flourish as Britain leaves the European Union.

Mrs May meanwhile revealed Donald Trump's advice to her on the Brexit negotiations had been to "sue the EU".

May also said that Trump advised her not to walk away from negotiations altogether, a piece of counsel she does agree with. "Don't abandon the negotiations, because then you'll really be stuck", Theresa May said when speaking to the BBC. "I understand those concerns", she said.

At the arrivals terminal at the airport, there's a giant billboard that reads, "Mr President, welcome to the land of free press". Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday said don't bother. "I respect the leaders of those countries", Trump said of the European Union.


The video has not only left the British offended, it has led to many calling him a "narcissist".

Leading Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has called the White Paper a "bad deal for Britain".

'We could go for no-deal - no-deal is still there, it is still possible, ' she said. "The chance to become a credible trading partner will be compromised and we will be unable to strike free-trade deals".

While her interview and an article she wrote in a major national newspaper was a "don't rock the boat' plea to Conservative rebels, May was confronted by a new poll showing her party's popularity had fallen by six points since early June to 36, four behind the main opposition Labour Party who remained at 40 points".

Mr. Trump's comments threatened to weaken May's already fragile hold on power.

Last week, May published details of an agreement reached by her Cabinet on how post-Brexit trade could work, but that prompted the resignation of two senior ministers, including Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary, saying that the plan would not deliver the Brexit deal that people had voted for in the 2016 referendum. "We have been discussing this option".

"Many people voted from the heart to leave the European Union", she said.

In the past few days, Mr Trump's first official visit to Britain was steered wildly off course by a series of humiliating remarks he has made about May's leadership - especially her handling of the tense Brexit negotiations.

'My job as Prime Minister is to deliver for them, but also I've got to be hard-headed and practical about this and do it in a way that ensures we get the best interests for the United Kingdom'.

"I think she found it maybe too brutal", said the president.

He confirmed they had discussed the thorny subject of Brexit. "I think you're doing an wonderful job". "We're going to get it". Just very elegant. "She was fantastic ! Such a wonderful lady and so lovely !" Up close, you see she's so attractive .


Steve Baker, a senior legislator who served as a deputy to Davis in the Brexit ministry before resigning with his boss, said May had presided over a "cloak and dagger" plot to undermine Brexit.
