Responding to reports Donald Trump will put the EU ahead of the UK in trade talks, Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron said:
This is a devastating blow to Theresa May’s hard Brexit plans.
Yet another claim by the Brexiteers, that Britain would be at the front of the queue for a trade deal with US, now lies in tatters.
Theresa May should now make clear she will prioritise a trade deal with the EU over one with Trump.
It’s not too late to prevent a hard Brexit and keep Britain in the Single Market.
This election is a chance to change the direction of our country.
