The government has publicly defended Britain’s Brexit deal with the European Union, following criticism from US President Donald Trump.
Trump stated that the US “can’t make a trade deal with the UK” under the proposed Brexit deal.
However, Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick said the PM Boris Johnsons’ plan was a “good deal” that allows the UK to “strike free trade deals around the world”.
The UK is going to the polls on 12 December following a further delay to the UK’s departure from the EU, to 31 January 2020.
Johnson hopes to win a majority of seats so that he can get his deal through Parliament – while Labour leader Corbyn promises another referendum if his party wins the election
Trump said his longstanding ally Nigel Farage – leader of the Brexit Party – should partner with Johnson to do “something terrific”, saying they would be “an unstoppable force”.
