UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — US President Donald Trump said that British Prime Minister Theresa May did not heed his advice on how to negotiate on Brexit (leaving the UK from the European Union).
“I’m surprised at how badly Brexit negotiations went. I gave the Prime Minister advice on how to negotiate to achieve success, but she didn’t listen. This is normal. She should do what she should,” the American said Thursday’s leader told reporters at the White House.
“I would like the situation around Brexit to normalize, we can conclude a trade agreement with the UK,” he stressed.
“If the European Union refuses to conduct [trade] negotiations with us, then we will introduce tariffs for many of their goods,” the head of the White House said.
On Wednesday, British deputies supported the proposal of Prime Minister Theresa May to exclude the scenario of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union without an agreement on the conditions of Brexit. According to the results of the voting held in the House of Commons, 321 legislators spoke in favor of this initiative, 278 opposed.
After the end of the voting, May confirmed that on March 14, the question of the need to postpone the date of the country’s withdrawal from the EU from March 29 to a later date would be brought before the House of Commons. If the House of Commons supports the transfer of Brexit, the Cabinet will turn to the EU with a corresponding request.
