Trump Offers Up Opinion on May's Brexit Deal

Trump Offers Up Opinion on May's Brexit Dealby 👩‍💻 Stephanie Boyd

UK to leave the EUBritish Prime Minister Theresa May has experienced something of an embattled few weeks with regard to negotiating Brexit. As the European Union appears to have provisionally agreed upon a plan of sorts to take place for the UK to leave the EU next year, we are still a fair way away from a deal (if at all) being finalized. What’s more, plenty of voices in UK government have spoken out against May’s proposals for the UK’s divorce from the Union, with critics claiming that the plan appears to retain much of the red tape that ‘Leave’ voters wished to leave behind – while Northern Ireland’s DUP are concerned that May could be going against promises she had made previously.

The latest name to wade into the heated debate over May’s proposal feasibility is a big one indeed – US President Donald Trump, who – according to BBC News – has publicly suggested that May’s current plans may make things difficult for future US-UK trade relations. While stating that the plans appeared to be a ‘great deal’ for the European Union, Trump was quick to advise that transatlantic trading may suffer as a result if such intentions come into play.

“Right now if you look at the deal, (Britain) may not be able to trade with us,” Trump confirmed to reporters at the White House. “And that wouldn’t be a good thing. I don’t think they meant that.” It’s long been thought that trade relations between the US and UK could become complicated following Brexit, though Downing Street has remained confident that they will be able to make further deals outside the EU with willing participants from around the world. Trump’s comments, however, may add additional strain to May’s current woes.

The Prime Minister has recently fought off an initial attempt from within her own government to launch a vote of no confidence – which could trigger a new leadership election, and could therefore lead to an entirely new Prime Minister being installed. The Brexit deal proposed by May will still need to pass through Parliament before it is enshrined – and many political commentators and media outlets are suggesting that it may not survive the chamber. If this occurs, May could be left with three options – going for a ‘No Deal’ approach, launching a second referendum, or stopping Brexit completely. Who’s to say which way things will go?
