Theresa May seems to be going with what they term a "soft Brexit," which seems to be remaining in the European Union in everything but name.
People who voted to leave the European superstate are understandably none too happy. I thought that's why Johnson resigned, because the deal was a betrayal of the referendum and he wanted no part of it. It's not "the Infowars line," it's the Brexiteers' line.
His fiercest criticism came over the centrepiece of the PM’s new Brexit plan — which was unveiled in full yesterday.
It would stick to a common rulebook with Brussels on goods and agricultural produce in a bid to keep customs borders open with the EU.
But Mr Trump told The Sun: “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal.
“If they do that, then their trade deal with the US will probably not be made.”
The EU deal would be The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which was one of those monstrous managed trade deals running to thousands of pages, which Obama and the EU kept away from the prying eyes of the public.
TTIP controversy: Secret trade deal can only be read in secure 'reading room' in Brussels
The reports on the ongoing negotiations and the contents of the negotiated TTIP proposals are classified from the public, and can be accessed only by authorised persons. Multiple leaks of proposed TTIP contents into the public caused controversy.
TTIP seems to have been on and off and on again and off again since about 1990 (Bush 1), got going in earnest under Obama, but ground to a halt before Obama left office.
I believe that if the British government had gone along with the will of the people and actually left the EU, President Trump would have offered the brits an actual free trade deal. No tariffs, barriers, or subsidies.
With "soft Brexit," the UK would have to piggyback off the TTIP
