The UK is smart in getting out of Europe, Trumps up!

Brexit: Donald Trump could tempt other countries to leave EU if he strikes favourable US-UK deal

Since vote Brexit, positive news has been hard to come by and the PM will jump to any opportunity to create some positive waves, before she triggers article 50. Thus, Mr Trump’s offer of a trade deal with US and UK is great news to the Prime Minister Teresa May, and as such she is scheduling to meet the President-elect soon after his inauguration in order to ratify a new US-UK trade deal.

In his first interview, he said the UK was smart to voting Brexit and despite the comments of the previous administration the UK would not fall to the back of any queue for trade deals with the United States.

He also suggests that other countries would follow suit and leave the EU, following the Brexit vote in the UK. Curiously, the US has always preferred a divisive Europe, thus as a ruthless businessmen, who sees the world in numbers, advantages and opportunities, it makes sense that the Trump administration does what it can to unsettle the EU.

In fact, Britain will not be able to begin negotiating new trade deals until the Brexit process is complete.

Mr Trump, who also criticised NATO for being “obsolete” and number two on the list of problems was that the countries weren’t paying what they’re supposed to be paying,” adding that this was unfair to the United States.

He also revealed that he was inviting Prime Minister Theresa May to visit him “right after” he gets into the White House.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said: “I think it’s very good news that the United States of America wants to deal a good free trade deal with us and wants to do it very fast, and it’s great to hear that from President-elect Donald Trump.
