Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
May locked in between a hard rock and granite ...

    "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing
    with the European Union instead of dealing with
    the U.K., so it will probably kill the deal."

Trump suggests US and UK could strike a 'tremendous deal' on trade after Brexit | CNBC - July 15, 2018  |

With Brexit negotiations having hit rough shoals, May is under pressure to deliver on the 2016 vote to extricate the U.K. from the 28-member economic bloc.

"We would make a tremendously big deal" with Britain, Trump said in the interview, published by the Daily Mail, apparently trying to smooth over a firestorm created ahead of his visit.

"Oh I think we're going to have a great trade deal, I've really no doubt about it," Trump said in the interview. "We're going to get it. I said [to Theresa May], "Make sure you have a carve out, you have to have a carve out" - where no matter what happens they have the right to make a deal with the United States."

Barack Obama: As your friend, let me say that the EU makes Britain even greater | The Telegraph - Apr. 23, 2016 |

Nearly 80 years later, the United Kingdom remains a friend and ally to the United States like no other. Our special relationship was forged as we spilt blood together on the battlefield. It was fortified as we built and sustained the architecture for advancing stability and prosperity in Europe, and our democratic values around the globe. From the ashes of war, those who came before us had the foresight to create the international institutions and initiatives to sustain a prosperous peace: the United Nations and NATO; Bretton Woods, the Marshall Plan, and the European Union. Their efforts provided a foundation for democracy, open markets, and the rule of law, while underwriting more than seven decades of relative peace and prosperity in Europe.
