Trump warming to EU trade deal with Britain behind in queue

Merkel did not mention the exchange, saying only that she was very encouraged following her USA visit and adding that the EU's first priority was to complete work on a deal with Japan.

During a trade meeting in Washington, DC, last month, Trump repeatedly asked Merkel what it would take for the U.S. to be able to negotiate a trade deal with Germany as a response to the upcoming UK Brexit.

Mr Ross confirmed in an interview with the Financial Times the proposed EU-US trade deal - originally negotiated under President Obama - is something Mr Trump is likely to restore.

White House officials also confirmed Trump's change of priorities to the Times.

Trump, who has repeatedly criticised the European Union, had welcomed Britain's 2016 vote to leave the bloc and said he would work hard to get a quick bilateral trade deal done.

Everytime she replied 'You can't do a deal with Germany, only the EU.


"Yeah, it's amusing: One of the best chemistries I had was with Merkel", the president said during an interview with the Associated Press covering his first 100 days in office.

They continued: "On the eleventh refusal, Trump finally got the message, 'Oh, we'll do a deal with Europe then'". "'Oh, we'll do a deal with Europe then'". All signatory states are obligated to do.

According to a source in the White House, the Trump administration, following the meeting with Merkel, then realized that negotiating a new deal with the European Union would have to take precedence over locking down a new trade arrangement with post-Brexit England, as reported by Business Insider.

During the first three months of the administration, Ivanka Trump has strived to highlight issues relating to women's economic empowerment.

The change of heart is said to have taken place during his talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel when Trump realised a US-EU deal would be simpler than negotiating with individual EU countries, which is not permitted under EU laws, and Britain.
