May reveals Trump Brexit advice: Sue the EU, don't negotiate

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday said US President Donald Trump had previously advised her to sue the European Union as part of her Brexit strategy, revealing a piece of advice Trump said last week she had ignored. "Actually, no, we're going into negotiations with them", she said.

"Some people have asked whether our Brexit deal is just a starting point from which we will regress", she said. "And I think it probably would have worked", Trump said.

Mrs May said threatened Commons revolts by pro- and anti-EU MPs risked undermining any chances of a deal with Brussels.

The size of the threat should become clear on Monday when lawmakers vote on amendments to legislation on the government's post-Brexit customs regime, with leading eurosceptics set to vote in favour of amendments that May opposes and back their own proposals to toughen up her exit plan.

The terms will allow the department to protect US national security, Ross said. The ZTE deal remains controversial on Capitol Hill. The current ban could have lasted seven years.

Before the paper was published, Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned, saying it would not deliver the Brexit people voted for in the 2016 referendum.

While the protests against Trump, mainly organised by leftist organisations, took place in London, others wanted to give the president a warm welcome in the UK.

Trump is spending the weekend out of the spotlight, staying at his resort in Turnberry in western Scotland ahead of his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

"My job as Prime Minister is to deliver for them, but also I've got to be hard-headed and practical about this and do it in a way that ensures we get the best interests for the United Kingdom". "I am afraid that I think the current trend of policy and tactics is making that look less and less likely". Steve Baker, the Brexit minister who quit along with Davis, accused her in The Sunday Telegraph of presiding over a "cloak and dagger" plot to undermine Brexit. But the exchange was the latest example of the awkward dance between the USA and Britain, with the two leaders attempting to put on a public show of friendliness despite clear strains over trade, the European Union and their approaches to diplomacy.

May's comments comes at a politically perilous moment for the prime minister, who is facing calls for a confidence vote over her leadership of the Conservative party, The Guardian commented.

The president later played down his remarks during the joint news conference with May, saying he understood why she had found the advice "a little bit tough".

"This is, at best, an untrusting way to behave and a more severe commentator would call it untrustworthy", he wrote.

"Unfortunately, there was a story that was done which was generally fine but it didn't put in what I said about the Prime Minister and I said a tremendous thing", he said.
