Trump Says He ‘Looks Forward’ to U.K. Trade Deal Post Brexit
(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump said he looks forward to striking a trade deal with the U.K., as a vote looms there on whether to delay Brexit following Parliament’s rejection this week of a no-deal split with the European Union.
The EU has suggested it’s open to a delay until late May, although officials say they will need Britain to give a clear reason for pushing back the deadline.
Trump said last month that he expects trade with the U.K. to increase “substantially,” handing a boost to Theresa May, the beleaguered prime minister, who has flagged a trans-Atlantic agreement as one of the great prizes of Brexit.
