Donald Trump: Theresa May's Brexit plan will 'kill' United States trade deal

Michel Barnier

In an interview published just hours before he was due to have lunch with May and tea with Queen Elizabeth on Friday, Trump chided the "very unfortunate" results of the prime minister's Brexit negotiation.

The US president said he would have done the Brexit negotiations "much differently" and claimed the Prime Minister did not listen to his advice, in an interview with The Sun.

"Today's Brexit white paper is a real blow for the UK's financial and related professional services sector", Catherine McGuinness, policy chairman of the City of London Corporation, said in a statement.

But what about the other counterparty, the 27 heads of European Union governments and the officials in Brussels who are their willing vassals (to use the word of the moment)?

President Donald Trump directly criticized Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy, saying it had probably killed off hope of a U.S.

Now, according to details of a confidential joint UK-India Trade Review released to "Greenpeace Unearthed", it would appear that India would be among the countries unlikely to reap many post-Brexit benefits.

But the plan has infuriated fervent Brexit supporters in May's Conservative Party, who think it would limit Britain's ability to strike new trade deals around the world.

Relations with the USA are a high priority for the prime minister's trade policy.

This includes that the United Kingdom should be allowed to leave the EU while effectively staying in its members' clubs - a common theme throughout the document, which refers to the European Data Protection Board in the context of data flows. "I don't know (if) that is what they voted for", he added.

"I get thousands of notifications from people in the UK that they love the President of the United States".

"I would say Brexit is Brexit", he told reporters.

"So I would imagine that's what they will do, but maybe they will take a little bit of a different route". The Government is right to want to propose a new economic and regulatory arrangement which seeks to strengthen and expand the current third country regime.

Apart from the repositioned fingerprint scanner, the Note 9 is likely to sport the same design as the predecessor Note 8 . This is reportedly due to battery considerations. "The new super powerful Note" is the tagline on this promo material.

At the moment, it appears very much like former foreign secretary Boris Johnson and former Brexit secretary David Davis resigned over a proposal that won't ever actually materialise.

Sterling fell half a percent to a 1-1/2 week low of $1.3131, partly on Trump's comments.

Mr Trump said: "I think he is a great representative for your country".

Mr Coveney said: "What you will see from the European Union now is a 'take them seriously on this new position" and a desire to get the negotiating teams into a room from next Monday afterwards.

"The people voted to break it up (Britain's ties with the EU)", Trump told a press conference.

Mr Trump's son Eric has arrived in Scotland for a golfing visit to Trump International Golf Links at Menie, Aberdeenshire, and Trump Turnberry, near Girvan, South Ayrshire.

Protests took place outside the Blenheim grounds in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, with several hundred demonstrators waving banners and placards reading Dump Trump, Not Welcome Here, Protect Children Not Trump and Keep Your Tiny Hands Off My Pussy!

Some carried placards saying Special Relationship?

But they avoided the noise and spectacle of the protests on the ground by travelling by helicopter between the airport, London and Oxfordshire.

Asked about his comments at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Prime Minister Theresa May defended herself, saying "what we are doing is delivering on the vote of the British people. that's what our proposal does", she told reporters.

A high fence has been erected around the USA ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night and the embassy has sent out an alert warning Americans in London to keep a low profile in case protests turn violent.
