Trump Tells May Her Brexit Plan Will Kill Off US Trade Deal

The long-awaited proposal for the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the EU sets out proposals for a softer Brexit than Prime Minister Theresa May had initially planned, vowing to push through her plan to keep the United Kingdom closely tied to the European Union single market after Brexit.

The Sun said the interview was conducted Thursday in Brussels, before Trump traveled to Britain.

Brexit campaign leader Nigel Farage warned the Prime Minister will "destroy the Conservative Party" if she remains leader, adding that May and her Cabinet "grossly underestimate how reviled" their plans for a super-soft Brexit are with the public.

US President Donald Trump said a free trade deal with Britain might be impossible if London went ahead with Prime Minister Theresa May's proposals for post-Brexit ties with the European Union, in damaging remarks that could widen domestic criticism of her plans.

It comes just days after Mr Trump declined to say whether Mrs May should remain in post, said he had "always liked" Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over the Chequers agreement, and described the United Kingdom as being in "turmoil".

Nigel Farage was questioned on whether he had "wound up" Mr Trump about Brexit on BBC's This Week and said: 'We've had the odd chat about it, I like to have a chat with them (Team Trump)'.

"If they do that, then their trade deal with the USA will probably not be made".

Their run to the semi-final deserves enormous credit and nobody should have any complaints, but nonetheless they blew this game. The game turned in overtime on two plays - one on which a defender was alert, the other on which a defender was caught napping.

Trump told the Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper he had advised May on how to conduct Brexit negotiations, "but she didn't listen to me".

He said: "I understand that people won't all agree, people have very strong views on the Brexit issue". May is already believed to be dangerously close to a vote of no confidence by her party.

May faces a huge task trying to persuade European Union negotiators to accept that the proposals are viable, while also keeping her Conservative party and Parliament on side.

"He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person".

Trump will attend a gala dinner Thursday with British and American officials at Blenheim Palace, the ancestral home of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Trump and his wife, Melania, met British Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip for a formal dinner at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Thursday.

"I think he is a great representative for your country", he said.

"The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on", he said.

Asked if the ex-minister could be in No. 10 one day, he replied: "Well I am not pitting one against the other". Jacob Rees-Mogg, the chairman of the backbench European Research Group, said the proposals amount to "vassalage" and "a bad deal for Britain". "So I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad".

Mr Trump had a lot to say about his friend Mr Johnson, including expressing his sadness that he made a decision to quit his role in government over the Brexit plan.

Trump's staff has opted to keep him largely out of central London and the swarms of demonstrators who are expected to protest the president's every move during his two-day stay in the United Kingdom.

The plan put forward today would see the UK form an associate agreement with the EU, would effectively keep the UK in the customs union and single market for goods, and could allow EU migrants to work in the UK without a visa - albeit on a temporary basis. "And unless you act very quickly, it's never going to be what it was".

One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
