Trump Lays Out Hopes of Big US-UK Trade Deal

Thursday, 14 March 2019 08:28 AM

President Donald Trump says his administration "looks forward to negotiating a large scale Trade Deal with the United Kingdom" as the country continues to try to hash out its departure from the European Union.

Trump's tweet Thursday comes as British lawmakers appear set to put the brakes on Brexit, at least for now:

"My Administration looks forward to negotiating a large scale Trade Deal with the United Kingdom. The potential is unlimited!"

Parliament is set to vote later on whether to ask the European Union to request a delay the U.K.'s exit, due in just over two weeks on March 29. Lawmakers have committed the country to staying in the bloc unless a divorce deal is ratified.

Trump has been critical of Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal, previously warning that it could "kill" a bilateral trade agreement between the U.S. and the U.K.

But he now he says: "The potential is unlimited!"
