NOT TOUGH ENOUGH: Trump slams Theresa May for weak negotiating stance in Brexit talks

PRESIDENT Donald Trump has savaged Theresa May’s handling of Brexit negotiations and has said he would have taken a “tougher stand” over how Britain exits the EU.

In an interview with Piers Morgan, which will air tonight on ITV at 10pm, the US President was asked if Theresa May was in a “good position” in the ongoing Brexit talks.

Trump replied: “Would it be the way I negotiate? No, I wouldn’t negotiate it the way it’s [being] negotiated… I would have had a different attitude,”

“I would have said that the European Union is not cracked up to what it’s supposed to be. I would have taken a tougher stand in getting out.”


Mr Trump also told Piers that he wasn’t surprised with Brits voting to Leave the European Union.

“I said because of trade, but mostly immigration, Brexit is going to be a big upset. And I was right,” he said. “I know the British people and understand them.

“They don’t want people coming from all over the world into Britain, they don’t know anything about these people.”


The US President also said he had been invited to make two trips to the UK this year, a working visit likely to take place in July following a Nato summit in Brussels, as well as a state visit in October.

When asked if he would be making the trip, Mr Trump replied: “Yeah, I’ll be there. She [Ms May] just invited me. Twice.”
