DONALD Trump has dropped a Brexit bombshell by suggesting the UK and America would not be able to strike a trade deal after the country leaves the EU, according to the Daily Express.
Theresa May received another Parliamentary roasting earlier today, and now Mr Trump hammered another nail into the coffin of the increasingly dodo-shaped Withdrawal Agreement.
Speaking to reporters in Washington he said that the deal as “good for the EU” and that it may damage the trading relationship between the US and the UK, echoing the criticism made by leading Brexiteers that it makes an independent trading policy next to impossible.
He said: “It sounds like a great deal for the EU and I think we have to take a look at seriously whether the UK is allowed to trade because right now, if you look at the deal, they may not be able to trade with us and that wouldn’t be a good thing.
“I don’t think they meant that, I don’t that the Prime Minister meant that and hopefully she’ll be able to do something about that.
“Right now as the deal stands they may not be able to trade with the us and I don’t think they want that at all, that would be a very big negative for them.” added Trump.

Boris Johnson attacked the deal after Mrs May’s latest statement to the Commons as “unsatisfactory” as the Prime Minister confirmed that the vote on the deal will happen on December 11th.
