President Donald Trump has said Washington and London can move “rapidly” over a post Brexit trade deal and said he had “great discussion” with Boris Johnson on Monday.
Trump said on Twitter, “Great discussion with Prime Minister @BorisJohnson today. We talked about Brexit and how we can move rapidly on a US-UK free trade deal.
“I look forward to meeting with Boris this weekend, at the @G7, in France!”
In July Trump said that they were working on a “very substantial” post Brexit deal.
President Trump said, “You know we can do with the UK, we can do three to four times, we were actually impeded by their relationship with the European Union. We were very much impeded on trade.
“And I think we can do three to four or five times what we’re doing.”
