Britain post-Brexit would NOT be back of the queue for US trade deal, Trump declares


BRITAIN would not be at the back of the queue for a trade deal with the US if they left the European Union, according to presidential hopeful Donald Trump.

The Republican nominee said Brexit would make no difference to a potential bilateral trade deal if he became leader — despite claims from Barack Obama.

The current US president warned Britons if they elected to leave the EU in the June 23 referendum they will not be automatically entitled to the same trade agreements arranged under the EU.

Speaking to Piers Morgan in a clip showed on Sunday, Trump said Obama's comments made during a visit to London last month would not apply if he is voted in.

He told ITV: "With me they'll always be treated fantastically well.

"I will treat everybody fairly. It wouldn't make any difference to me if they were in the EU or not.

"You would certainly not be back of the queue, that I can tell you."


In the full interview shown on ITV today, he said: "Looks like we’re not going to have a very good relationship.

"Who knows. I hope to have a good relationship with him. But it looks like he’s not willing to address the problem either.

"Number one: I’m not stupid… just the opposite. And number two I don’t think I’m a divisive person, I’m a unifier."


Trump has had a rocky relationship with David Cameron ever since he suggested Muslims should be banned from entering the US until the IS threat is over.

David Cameron has repeatedly refused to apologise to Trump after declaring him to be "divisive, stupid and wrong".
