Trump said in a joint press conference with UK Prime Minister Theresa May that “we agreed today that as the U.K. leaves the EU we will pursue an ambitious U.S.-U.K. trade deal.” And he added that “the United States looks forward to finalizing a great bilateral trade deal” with the UK.”
Regarding Brexit negotiation, Trump said it’s “not an easy negotiation to be sure” and the deal UK reached “is OK with me”. He added “just make sure we can trade together.”
Trump called the Sun story “generally fine” but some of his comments were left out. He noted “I said very good things about her” in the interview”. May is a “total professional”. Trump also said “when I saw her this morning I said, ‘I want to apologize, because I said such good things about you.”
