Trump says US supports Britain in Brexit talks


President Donald Trump says the U.S. supports the British people’s decision to “realize full self-government” as it negotiates an exit from the European Union.

Of the negotiations toward an exit, Trump says: “We will see how that goes.”

He calls it a “very complicated negotiation.” A slim majority of Britons voted in 2016 to break from the EU.

Trump criticized May’s handling of the so-called Brexit negotiations in an interview with a British tabloid published on Thursday.

Trump also thanked May for her “very gracious hospitality.” The prime minister welcomed the American president to her official residences outside of London.

The leaders are holding a news conference following meetings Friday at Chequers, May’s official country estate.
