Trump bumps Britain down the queue 'after Merkel lobbies for EU trade deal first'

Report comes days after senior Republican said the US was ready to forge an agreement with Britain 'as soon as possible'

Donald Trump has bumped Britain down the queue for a new free trade agreement after Angela Merkel convinced him he should first strike a deal with the EU, it has been claimed.

Ms Merkel's lobbying reportedly led to a "realisation" in Washington that a deal with the EU would benefit the US far more than one with the UK post-Brexit.

Citing American officials, The Times reported Mr Trump was now convinced making an agreement with Europe would be easier than he had thought.

Oh dear, 'I told you so' just don't begin to cover it. The Brexit disaster continues.

Yep, reinforced by this, no Theresa, for all you cringeworthy hand holding, we aren't at the front of the queue
