US President Donald Trump accused UK Prime Minister Theresa May of undermining Brexit in an interview with The Sun.
Trump said that she has ignored his advice by opting for a soft Brexit implementation. He added that May may have killed off any chance of a trade deal with the US.
“She didn’t agree, she didn’t listen to me,” the US president said commenting on how May reacted to his advice.
Acording to Trump, the British PM’s Brexit plan “will definitely affect trade with the United States, unfortunately in a negative way.”
“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,” he noted.
The president noted that the US has “enough difficulty” with the EU.
“We are cracking down right now on the European Union because they have not treated the United States fairly on trading,” Trump added.
Trump’s remarks are another signal of the currently complicated relations between the US and its European allies. These relations have been reecntly fueled further by new tariffs imposed by Washington on EU member states.
