President of the United States Donald Trump advised the Prime Minister of Great Britain Theresa May to choose a more tough position on the issue of Brexit. The British politician herself told about this in an interview with the BBC.
"He told me that I should sue the EU, and not enter into negotiations with it," said May.
According to the prime minister, she found such advice "too brutal."
At the same time, May added that Trump adheres to the position that Britain should not abandon Brexit.
We recall that US President Donald Trump and the British Prime Minister met in London, after the NATO summit, on July 13.
Earlier, Theresa May, the British PM, stated that due to the attempts of the legislators to defeat her plan of the countries’ exit from the EU, Brexit might not be implemented. She said it for Mail on Sunday, as Reuters reports.
“My message to the country this weekend is simple: we need to keep our eyes on the prize. If we don’t, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all,” she said.
She also stated that Britain would take a severe position in the next round of talks with the EU.
“Some people have asked whether our Brexit deal is just a starting point from which we will regress,” she said. “Let me be clear. Our Brexit deal is not some long wish-list from which negotiators get to pick and choose. It is a complete plan with a set of outcomes that are non-negotiable,” May wrote.
