President Donald Trump on Saturday met Prime Minister Theresa May and said he expects a US-UK trade deal to be agreed upon “very, very quickly”, while promoting the special relationship between the two countries.
The president said the “very special relationship” is still alive and that he had developed his own close relationship with the prime minister, adding that he whole-heartedly supports post-Brexit Britain.
On a future trade deal, Trump said he expects one to be signed “very quickly” and that it’ll be “a very powerful deal”.
Speaking ahead of the bilateral meeting, he said: “We’re working on a trade deal which will be a very, very big deal, a very powerful deal, great for both countries.”
“I think we’ll have that done very, very quickly,” he added.
The comments will be seen as a big win for the British prime minister, who’s desperate to promote the prospect of Global Britain.
