U.S President Donald Trump has suggested that Theresa May’s Brexit agreement could threaten a US-UK trade deal.
Trump told reporters the withdrawal agreement “sounds like a great deal for the EU” and meant the UK might not be able to trade with the US.
Downing Street added that Mrs. May is ready to defend her deal in a TV debate with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
It has been reported the debate could take place on 9 December – two days before the Parliamentary vote on Mrs May’s deal.
Speaking to reporters outside the White House, Mr Trump said UK may not be able to trade with them.
The comments came after Mrs May fought off criticism of her Brexit deal from MPs on all sides of the Commons on Monday – insisting the agreement would allow the UK to regain control of laws, money and borders.
