Trump sees 'very good chance' of trade deal with China

The Prime Minister has previously revealed that Mr Trump told her to "sue the EU" and "not go into negotiations".

US President Donald Trump expressed a desire to negotiate a "large scale" trade deal with Britain via Twitter today.

Trump said that Brexit is "tearing countries apart" and claimed the European Union has been "very tough to deal with".

He said: "I gave the Prime Minister my ideas on how to negotiate it and I think you would have been successful".

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month that Xi and Trump could reach a formal trade deal at a summit around March 27, but Trump said on Wednesday he was in no rush to complete a deal. She didn't listen to that and that's fine. "I hate to see everything being ripped apart right now".

Trump has previously been critical of May's Brexit deal, warning that it could "kill" a bilateral trade agreement between the U.S. and the UK. "I've been saying very much from the beginning that speed is not that important to me", Trump said.

On the prospect of another referendum, he said: "I don't think another vote would be possible because it would be very unfair to the people that won". They have been very very tough about trade over the years.

Trump famously dubbed himself "Mr Brexit" during his campaign - and commentators have linked his election to Britain's landmark decision in June, 2016.

President Trump on Thursday said his administration wants to make a "large scale trade deal" with the United Kingdom and called the potential for such a deal "unlimited" - a boost to British Prime Minister Theresa May's besieged government on the same day as lawmakers across the pond are due to vote on delaying Britain's departure from the bloc.

In response, Mr Varadkar said: "We have a different opinion at present". I regret that Brexit is happening and the United Kingdom was a really important part of the European Union.
