What Trump Means For Britain


Obama said Britain would be at “the back of the queue” on trade deals whereas Trump supported Brexit and dislikes complicated deals with trading blocs. This implies Britain would be ahead of the EU in the trade queue.

Trump also likes the UK far more than Obama did. His mother was born in the Isle of Lewis and he chose Scotland to build his most ambitious golf course. Obama had a bust of Churchill removed from the Oval Office.

Brexit negotiations may improve dramatically if Trump’s scepticism about NATO pushes EU countries into the arms of Britain. The UK is  the second biggest military power in NATO after America and has nuclear weapons. Trump’s victory has increased cautious speculation that Front National leader Marine Le Pen could win the French election. This would very likely spell the end of the EU as we know it…
