Brexit white paper: What does it say? Will Brexit ever REALLY happen?

Brexit white paper: What does it say? Will Brexit ever REALLY happen?

The news of the interview broke in tweets from a Sun reporter while Mr. Trump was at a gala with May to commemorate his visit.

Britain's finance industry attacked the government on Thursday for ditching its blueprint for trade with the European Union after Brexit, saying this was a blow for Britain's biggest exporter.

President Donald Trump has said British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plans will "probably kill" any US-UK trade deal.

This is not end of the Brexit process, but it is the beginning of the end.

Referring to May's Brexit proposals, Trump told the Sun, Britain's top-selling newspaper, "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal".

He added: "If they do that, then their trade deal with the United States will probably not be made".

His remarks on Brexit came the same day May's government published long-awaited proposals for Britain's relations with the European Union after it leaves the bloc next year.

"No, if they do that I would say that that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States".

Before the Sun interview was published, May invoked Winston Churchill as she addressed Trump and business leaders at a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, the grand 18th century country house that was the birthplace of the British World War Two leader.

Right-wing think tank Bow Group is holding a pro-Trump rally in Westminster to show support for the president.

The proposal comes days after senior ministers resigned from the cabinet against Prime Minister Theresa May's plans for what is being called as "soft-Brexit" as opposed to many of her ruling party colleagues, who have campaigned for "hard-Brexit".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle mobbed by fans on Dublin tour
Ahead of the outing, Markle did a quick outfit change and emerged with a strikingly different look from her first. It was definitely a departure from the dresses and skirts she has worn since she joined the royal family .

She added: "With three months left to go, it is now a race against time". And that is fine. It just about hangs together - but there is no doubt May will need to make compromises on certain aspects when she next sits down with Brussels negotiators.

"Well, I am not pitting one against the other", Trump said. I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it's never going to be what it was and I don't mean that in a positive way.

The government also insists, as expected, that it sees the EU's usual adequacy agreement - which the bloc has with 12 countries, in addition to two partial agreements - as "the right starting point" but that it should "go beyond the framework".

"There are some proposals that will concern other European Union countries because the single market and the four freedoms that are part of that; that are indivisible in most people's eyes are a very important part of the privilege of European Union membership", said Mr Coveney. "I'm just saying, I think he'd be a great prime minister". I think she is a nice person.

Liam Fox, Britain's trade minister, tweeted after the Sun interview was published that it was terrific to hear Trump "talk so positively about UK & US Trade tonight at Blenheim Palace".

"I would say Brexit is Brexit", he told reporters.

"I would have done it much differently".

"Leaving the European Union involves challenge and opportunity".

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London".

Johnson isn't the only politician to have quit over May's Brexit plans, as ministers David Davis and Steve Baker also quit the government in protest.

The Trumps landed in Air Force One at Stansted Airport at lunchtime on Thursday to kick-start a four-day working visit to Britain as protests against his trip began.
