On the second day of his state visit to the UK, US President Donald Trump appeared to have pulled out all stops, promising a “phenomenal” trade deal after Brexit. Trump was all praises for Britain on Tuesday, even as he skirted around the Huawei issue.
Addressing reporters at a news conference with PM Theresa May, Trump stated about Huawei, ““We did discuss it, I see absolutely no limitations, we have never had limitations, this is a truly great ally and partner and we will have no problem with that.”
Trump is clearly pro-Brexit as he felt optimistic that Brexit would allow the US and the UK to explore a large trade deal in the future. There is “tremendous potential” in such a deal, which could even be two or three times bigger than the present trade deal between the two countries.
