President Trump claimed in a televised interview set to air Sunday in the United Kingdom he would be “tougher” than British Prime Minister Theresa May were he responsible for Brexit negotiations to leave the European Union.
“Would it be the way I’d negotiate? No, I wouldn’t negotiate it the way it’s negotiated,” he said in a preview clip. “I would have said that the European Union is not cracked up to what it’s supposed to be and I would have taken a tougher stand in getting out.” Trump did not offer any specifics of how he would be tougher in the excerpt released ahead of the full interview.
These comments come after the two leaders appeared together at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, touting the strength of U.S.-U.K. relations. Some special relationship, huh?
