Theresa May Says Trump Told Me to Sue EU

London, US President Donald Trump told

Theresa May she should sue the European Union (EU) rather than

negotiate over Brexit.

The US President said at a joint press conference he had given

her a suggestion, but she had found it too “brutal”.

She defended her blueprint for Brexit and urged her critics to

back it.

She said it would allow the United Kingdom (UK) to strike trade

deals with other nations, end free movement of people, and end the

jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.

A White Paper published fleshing out details of her plan, which

advocates close links with the EU on trade in goods, but not services.

Before the paper was published, Brexit Secretary David Davis

and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned, saying it would not

deliver the Brexit people voted for in the 2016 referendum.

May laughed off the president’s legal action suggestion, saying

she would carry on with negotiations, but added: “Interestingly, what

the president also said at that press conference was ‘don’t walk away’.

“Don’t walk away from those negotiations because then you’ll be stuck.

So I want us to be able to sit down to negotiate the best deal for


May urged Brexiteers in her own party to “keep their eye on the

prize” of Brexit – and said her plan was the only workable way to deliver

it, the BBC reported.
