Liz Truss admits no chance of US Brexit trade deal talks for years
The Independent says Brexit trade deal negotiations with the United States will not restart for years, Liz Truss has conceded.
The Prime Minister made the admission as she flew to New York for a meeting with Joe Biden on Wednesday.
Brexiteeers claimed an agreement with the US would be easy to secure and suggested that it was a major benefit of leaving the EU’s customs union.
But speaking overnight on her flight to New York the prime minister downplayed the idea and told reporters that she had no expectations of talks restarting with Joe Biden’s government.
