President Trump unleashing on British Prime Minister Theresa May in an ??explosive interview with The Sun. ??Trump is not happy with May’s proposed Brexit plan ??going further to say that it would probably kill off any UK-US trade deal. ??The PM’s plan was finalized Friday and with it came resignations from her Cabinet, ??Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is out, who Trump said would make a great Prime Minister. ??As well as Brexit Secretary David Davis. ??Both are worried that the May plan will leave the UK too closely linked to the EU. ??Trump told the Sun quote, “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal.” ??The President also criticized May’s handling of Brexit, saying she went the opposite way of the approach he recommended. ??This all comes during a rocky visit to the UK for Trump ??that includes a giant Trump baby ballon which the President says makes him feel unwelcome in the country. ??
