Trump: UK May Not Be Able To Trade With US Under Theresa May's Brexit Deal
Trump spoke to reporters outside the White House
The United Kingdom may not be able to trade with the United States under the terms of Theresa May's Brexit deal according to President Donald Trump.
Trump spoke to reporters outside the White House claiming the deal was favorable to the 27 countries remaining in the EU.
"Sounds like a great deal for the EU,' he said.
"I think we have to take a look at, seriously, whether or not the UK is allowed to trade. Because, you know, right now, if you look at the deal, they may not be able to trade with us."
Trump proceeded to say:
"I don't think they meant that. I don't think that the Prime Minister meant that. And, hopefully, she'll be able to do something about that."
"But, right now, as the deal stands she may not, they may not, be able to trade with the US. And, I don't think they want that at all."
The news came just hours after May maintained her draft withdrawal agreement, which was signed off by the EU yesterday.
The UK in shambles

.Not long after that, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab – the person responsible for negotiating and finalizing the deal, announced he was stepping down. Esther McVey, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, offered her letter of resignation soon afterward.
No going back
The European Union recently told the United Kingdom there is zero possibility of renegotiating Brexit following Theresa May's deal with leaving the EU.
Senior EU officials have insisted the deal is fair enough to go along with.
“No deal better than the one on the table can be reached,” said Germany’s European affairs minister, Michael Roth on the dubious draft Brexit deal.
