White House Issues Statement Clarifying Trump’s Slam of British PM May

White House Issues Statement Clarifying Trump’s Slam of British PM May

Britain's most senior official in charge of negotiating the country's exit from the European Union resigned Sunday, accusing Prime Minister Theresa May of undermining Brexit with her plan to keep close trade ties with the bloc.

"How can anyone have faith in the prime minister getting a good deal with 27 European Union governments when she can't even broker a deal within her own Cabinet?" he asked. On Tuesday, two more lawmakers followed them out the door.

Resignation of UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will hardly bring about any radical changes in the UK foreign policies, including the policies towards Russia, believes senator Konstatin Kosachev, the chief of the foreign relations committee in the upper house of Russian parliament.

Jeremy Hunt will take over from Mr Johnson as foreign secretary while housing minister Dominic Raab, a staunch Brexiteer, has been appointed as the new Brexit Secretary.

On Monday, Johnson failed to arrive at an global meeting in London, fuelling speculation that he planned to resign.

Davis quit late Sunday, saying he could not support May's plan to maintain close trade and regulatory ties with the European Union, commonly known as a "soft Brexit", after the departure takes place next year.

"Secondly making sure there is no hard border and trying to minimise any negative impact on trade between Ireland and Great Britain". Previous year reports emerged that Davis said he meant to "retire" in 2019 and leave the transitional period of Britain's exit from the European Union to Boris Johnson, something later dismissed as a "lighthearted remark". Bradley called on May to "deliver Brexit in spirit as well as in name".

Jenkyns said Steve Baker, a junior minister in the Brexit department, had also quit. Asked if he was planning to quit, environment Secretary Michael Gove said "absolutely not".

The staunchly pro-Brexit Conservative lawmaker Andrea Jenkyns tweeted: "Fantastic news".

If a further 47 Conservative MPs send in letters it will trigger a vote of confidence in the leader.

Roger Federer breezes past Lajovic in straight sets in Wimbledon first round
The only things unfamiliar about Federer were his clothes. "Felt right at home again, so that was a really nice feeling", he said. Perhaps most importantly, the deal also features a clause that says he will continue to be paid even if he doesn't play.

But former Conservative leader William Hague warned party rebels that voting against the Prime Minister's final deal could result in Brexit being indefinitely delayed or halted altogether. Of course, the European Union might still not accept the British Government's proposals for a deal, and the United Kingdom might end up leaving without a deal.

The British government is due to publish a detailed version of its plans on Thursday.

She said: "The UK and the United States already have a uniquely close partnership in the fight for democracy and global security and we share a global outlook across the vast majority of foreign policy issues".

Addressing Parliament on Monday, May said the options presented so far by European Union negotiators were unacceptable to Britain.

Trump, who predicted Tuesday morning that his meeting next week with Russian President Vladimir Putin would likely be the "easiest" of his overseas visit, offered few words of support for May, describing the beset by "turmoil" and May's future in the hands of the British people.
