Donald Trump said that Theresa May’s proposed Brexit plan will “probably kill” off any chance of a UK-US trade deal in an bombshell interview with The Sun published on Thursday.

Trump’s remarks, made as he visits Britain for the first time as US President, are an explosive intervention into British politics that seem likely to cause political chaos and imperil the British Prime Minister as she attempts to negotiate Britain’s exit from the European Union.

May’s proposal was finalised on Friday, and has already sparked a slew of high-profile political resignations from her Cabinet, including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis, over concerns the plans would leave the UK too closely linked to the EU.

He added: “If they do that, then their trade deal with the US will probably not be made.”
