Trump Backs No Deal Brexit, Recommends ‘Very Smart’ Nigel Farage for Negotiations
U.S. President Donald Trump appeared to criticise Theresa May’s handling of Brexit ahead of his state visit to the United Kingdom, saying she left the EU with “all the cards” — and criticising her for not involving Nigel Farage in the negotiations.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, the American leader lamented the British government’s failure to deliver Brexit, telling the newspaper “they gotta get it done” and indicating that, if the European Union maintains its uncompromising stance, a clean, No Deal Brexit would be the best course of action.
“If they don’t get what they want, I would walk away,” he said bluntly.“Yes, I would walk away. If you don’t get the deal you want, if you don’t get a fair deal, then you walk away.”
