President Trump attended a press conference with PM Theresa May today at Chequers, with the US President insisting that the relationship between the two countries is a “bond like no other” and expressed his support for Brexit Britain moving forward, telling May: “Make sure we can trade together.”
Trump talked of an “enduring relationship” between the two countries, “bound together” by “traditions of freedom and sovereignty”.
He talked of the importance of “border security” as well and a shared history of sacrifice “in defence of freedom”.

Theresa May insisted there will be “no limit” to trade deals. So why did her Trade Secretary say that the UK would have to ask the EU?
