US President Donald Trump called on the United Kingdom to get rid of "restrictions" on EU membership quickly and conclude a free trade deal with the United States, according to Bloomberg.
Trump's call comes as Britain prepares to choose a new prime minister to succeed Teresa Mai after failing to persuade the British parliament to approve the BRICEST deal, which she negotiated with the European Union.
For his part, the White House issued a statement saying that the US president supports Britain's exit from the European Union, and is counting on that "it is accomplished in a way that will not affect the global economic and financial stability."
On Tuesday, Trump will hold talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May. According to some media reports, the US president sees no point in discussing his country's private trade relations with Britain today because of May's resignation, preferring to postpone this trade file until after its successor.
Teresa May will not back down from the deal to grant Huawei the right to publish the G5 service in the British market, despite the US reservations, and will not abandon the nuclear deal with Tehran.
Trump is on a state visit to the United Kingdom from June 3 to 5, and British Queen Elizabeth II hosted a royal dinner in honor of the US president and First Lady Melania Trump.
