Trump Gives Views on Brexit Negotiations


GBP

Over the weekend US President Donald Trump stated that Nigel Farage should be involved in the government’s Brexit negotiations and the UK should be prepared to leave the EU with no deal. Breaking with diplomatic convention, the President said the leader of the Brexit Party – an arch critic of Prime Minister Theresa May – “has a lot to offer” in negotiations with the EU, and should be included.

Trump was critical of government’s Brexit negotiations, saying it left the EU “with all the cards.” The US President also said Boris Johnson would be an “excellent” Conservative Party leader and the UK should walk away if it does not get what it wants from EU negotiations.

Ahead of his visit to the UK, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has marked Mr Trump’s visit by calling him “one of the most egregious examples of a growing global threat”. Mr Khan said: “The far right is on the rise around the world, threatening our hard-won rights and freedoms and the values that have defined our liberal, democratic societies for more than 70 years.” Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said he was boycotting Mr Trump’s state banquet at Buckingham Palace, in protest at the president’s “racist and misogynistic rhetoric”.
