UK: Nigel Farage Gives Update on Trump Dropping Bomb on Watered-Down Brexit Plan

Nigel Farage, former head of the pro-Brexit UK Independent Party, said that Trump dropped a bombshell by criticizing UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s soft Brexit plan, stating that “this was not the Brexit that the people voted for.”  Theresa May’s plan would make the UK subject to European court, lack of control over their own borders and it would make a trade deal between the UK and US virtually impossible.  May faces being removed from office.

DONALD Trump today accuses the PM of wrecking Brexit — and warns she may have killed off any chance of a vital US trade deal.

The US President delivers his incendiary verdict on her negotiating strategy in a world exclusive interview with The Sun.

In an extraordinary intervention timed to coincide with his UK visit, Mr Trump said Theresa May ignored his advice by opting for a soft Brexit strategy.

And he warned her any attempts to maintain close ties with the EU would make a lucrative US trade deal very unlikely.

Mr Trump said: “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal.”

His comments, damaging to the Prime Minister, come as he delivers his most brutally honest verdict yet on Britain in which he also:

Mr Trump’s remarks come as he prepares to meet the PM for a working lunch at Chequers.

He will then board a helicopter for Windsor Castle to meet the Queen before flying up to Scotland for a private two-day visit.

Thousands of people are expected to take part in a series of protests during his stay in the UK.

I told May how to do Brexit but she didn’t listen to me

THERESA May’s new soft Brexit blueprint would “kill” any future trade deal with the United States, Donald Trump warns today.

Mounting an extraordinary attack on the PM’s exit negotiation, the President also reveals she has ignored his advice on how to toughen up the troubled talks.

Instead he believes Mrs May has gone “the opposite way”, and he thinks the results have been “very unfortunate”.

His fiercest criticism came over the centrepiece of the PM’s new Brexit plan — which was unveiled in full yesterday.

It would stick to a common ­rulebook with Brussels on goods and agricultural produce in a bid to keep customs borders open with the EU.

But Mr Trump told The Sun: “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal.

FBI Official Peter Strzok Denied Obvious Bias Against Trump in Marathon Testimony

FBI official Peter Strzok, who led the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server and also led the Mueller Russia investigation, was the subject of a marathon hearing lasting 10 hours.  He had a long-term extramarital affair with FBI lawyer Lisa Page and wrote numerous texts revealing bias and animosity against Trump.  Trey Gowdy pointed out that Strzok’s texts about impeaching Trump were predetermining an outcome.

Wall Street Journal reporter Kimberly Strassel said that Strzok was making many of the daily decisions on the Mueller investigation, despite his bias.  Strzok’s testimony has raised new questions about how many versions of the dirty dossier exist and whether he was contacting Fusion GPS directly.  Strzok admitted that Bruce Ohr, a high-level DOJ official, married to Nellie Ohr who worked for Fusion GPS, served as a conduit between Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm, and the FBI.  Fusion GPS had been hired and paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
