A Brexit US-UK trade deal is now DEAD thanks to Government, says Trump.
President Donald Trump has slammed the Government’s Brexit ‘plan’, saying it would ‘kill’ any trade deal with the United States.
In an exclusive interview with the Sun’s Tom Newton-Dunn, Trump has said that the United States would instead deal with the European Union.
“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.” the President said.

The extraordinary intervention came less than 12 hours after landing in the UK, at the start of a three-day visit.
Donald Trump’s voice is the loudest attack on the Chequers plan, which puts a full Brexit further away than ever. The President stated he advised Theresa May, but she failed to heed his advice.
“I would have done it much differently, I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn’t listen to me”
The Prime Minister’s own party has been rocked with two high-level resignations from her Cabinet and her Conservative Party.
