In his interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain, the US president, Donald Trump, blamed Theresa May for the way she chose to deal with Brexit. Trump expressed his opposition toward May’s handling of Brexit negotiations. He claimed that he would have taken a “tougher stand”.
“Would it be the way I negotiate? No, I wouldn’t negotiate it the way it’s [being] negotiated. I would have had a different attitude,” answered Trump when he was asked whether the Prime Minister of UK is in a “good position” regarding the Brexit.
“I would have said that the European Union is not cracked up to what it’s supposed to be. I would have taken a tougher stand in getting out,” he continued. He also said that the result of the EU referendum was vivid for him. “I said [that] because of trade, but mostly immigration, Brexit is going to be a big upset. And I was right,” added Trump.
Sympathizing with the people of Britain, Trump claimed that he knows the British people well. “They don’t want people coming from all over the world into Britain, they don’t know anything about these people.”
He was asked about his upcoming trips to Britain and he replied “Yeah, I’ll be there. She [Ms. May] just invited me. Twice.” He also revealed that he had been invited to make two trips to UK; one in July following a Nato summit in Brussels, and the other one a state visit in October.
