US President Donald Trump said the UK should refuse to pay Brexit’s 39 billion pounds and “quit” negotiations on Brexit if Bruxelles does not give London what it wants.
Trump, in an interview for Sunday Times, said ahead of a state visit to Britain on Monday that the next British prime minister should send Nigel Farage, a fierce advocate of Britain’s EU entry, to negotiate with the EU.
Trump said Britain must leave the EU this year. “They have to do it,” he said. “They have to complete the negotiations,” added Trump.
“If they do not get what they want, I would go to their place. If you do not get a fair deal, you go,” the US president said.
Trump reiterated his support for those candidates for the British prime minister who said Britain should leave the EU by October 31, regardless of the outcome of the negotiations.
Candidates for this are former Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, whom Trump boasted in a Sun newspaper interview on Friday, former Minister for Brexit Dominic Raab and Interior Minister Sayyid Javid.
Trump also said that the conservative mistake had not included Farage, party leader Brexit, in negotiations with Brussels after the party’s success in European elections.
“I like Nigel very much. He has a lot to offer, he is a very smart person,” Trump said. “They will not engage him, but consider how good they can do it, they have not yet understood,” he added.
The US president said he needed to “meet” the leader of opposition laborers Jeremy Corby before sharing the most sensitive US intelligence data with the radical left-wing government.
The United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia have concluded an agreement for sharing intelligence, five-eye agreement.
