US President Donald Trump has once again expressed his desire for his Administration to negotiate a bumper trade deal with the UK post-Brexit.
In a new tweet today, Trump said: “My Administration looks forward to negotiating a large scale Trade Deal with the United Kingdom. The potential is unlimited!”
Trump has repeatedly spoke out in favour of a huge US-UK deal, but has been dismissive of Theresa May’s proposed deal, saying: “Right now as the deal stands, they may not be able to trade with the US. And I don’t think they want that at all, that would be a very big negative for the deal.”
The US Ambassador, Woody Johnson also said that Trump wants a “quick, very massive bilateral trade deal” but that under May’s plan it “doesn’t look like it would be possible”.
British MEP Nigel Farage recently revealed that he had discussed a No Deal Brexit with the US President: “I said in the case of Vietnam that No Deal was better than a bad deal and I gave my opinion that the same principle applied to Brexit.”
Brexit Britain needs a fully independent trade policy. That means exiting the Customs Union and refusing to be locked into the European Union’s control moving forward. The opportunities for global trade as an independent UK are huge.
