US President tells Theresa May her Brexit plan will ‘kill any US trade deal’

US president has warned Theresa May her Brexit plan could ‘kill’ any UK-US trade deal.
In an explosive start to his trip, Mr Trump is essentially forcing the UK to choose between its historic American ally or closest European leaders.
The comments came just hours before the Blenheim Palace dinner last night as Mrs May attempted to woo the US president into a lucrative trade pact. Donald Trump takes Theresa May’s hand last night but appears to have already twisted the knife.
He said: ‘If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal.
If eventually they do that, then their trade deal with the US will probably not be made.’ Downing Street has not yet reacted to Mr Trump’s remarks.
