LONDON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump says delicate Brexit of the kind set out by Prime Minister Theresa May final week would “probably kill” possibilities of a commerce deal between Britain and the United States, the Sun newspaper reported late on Thursday.
“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,” the Sun newspaper quoted Trump as saying in extracts from an interview.
Trump additionally stated May had ignored his recommendation on the way to go away the European Union. “I would have done it much differently,” he was quoted as saying. “I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn’t listen to me.”
