The presumptive U.S. Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, says Britain’s exit from the EU, were it actually to leave, would have no impact on trade deals between the two countries if he were president.
(ITV) – Presumptive U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Britain leaving the European Union would make no difference to a potential bilateral trade deal if he became president, according to an interview clip aired by broadcaster ITV on Sunday (May 15).
During a visit to London last month U.S. President Barack Obama told Britons if they elected to leave the EU in a June 23 referendum they would be at “the back of the queue” for a U.S. trade deal.
“I am going to treat everybody fairly, but it wouldn’t make any difference to me whether they were in the EU or not,” Trump said in an interview with Piers Morgan, due to be aired in full on ITV on Monday (May 16).
“You would certainly not be back of the queue, that I can tell you.”
