Donald Trump says that he want to see Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage” come together” and combine in front of the UK’s general election to observe a far better UK-US trade bargain post-Brexit.
Talking to reporters at the White House, the US president stated the UK prime minister along with also the Brexit Party least were his buddies, but Johnson had been”the ideal guy for the moment.”
He explained: “I enjoy them both. I believe Boris will get it done directly. What I want to see is to get Nigel and Boris to come along. I believe that is a chance.”
The 73-year-old afterward went on to promote a structured UK-EU divorce to facilitate continuing trade between the united kingdom and the United States.
“This would be awful for the UK since we could do more company [compared to ] European Union.”
Trump first waded to the UK’s election effort last week, telling Farage in a radio interview which the chief of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, could be”so poor” for Britain when he wins.
He also floated the notion that Johnson and Farage should unite forces, stating that it might be”terrific.”
“If he and you get together it is, you know, brute force,” Trump told Farage from the interview.
Farage reacted by stating he’d be”directly behind” Johnson about the state that the prime ministry shed his Brexit offer and opts instead for”clean break” no-deal scenario.
The election had been called due to an impasse at parliament over Brexit, over three decades after voters chose to leave the bloc.
