Trump promises UK trade deal

In his first UK interview with former Justice Secretary Michael Gove for the Times, the US President-elect promised a quick trade deal between the countries to help Britain become a ‘great thing’.

 

When asked if the UK was ‘at the front of the queue’, Mr Trump said: “We are going to work very hard to get it done quickly and done properly. Good for both sides.”

 

 

It came as speculation about what Trump’s presidency could mean for agriculture continued to grow since his election victory last year, following his decision to ’make individual deals with individual countries’.

 

Concerns were floating about the future of British food exports to the US, which were thought to be threatened by protectionist policies in the agricultural sector; what some US industry leaders suggested was the reason Mr Trump won so many farming votes.

 

But he said Britain was ‘doing great’ following its decision to leave the European Union and was ‘so smart in getting out’.

 

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage previously described Mr Trump’s victory as a ‘huge opportunity’ for the UK, saying: “We now have a President who likes our country and understands our post-Brexit values.”
