Trump on Brexit: I'm Surprised at How Badly it Has All Gone

15 March 2019, 02:39 | Glen Norman

Speaking to reporters ahead of his meeting on Thursday with Leo Varadkar, the Irish prime minister, Trump said he wants Brexit talks to work out but was surprised at how badly the negotiations have gone, adding that the British prime minister did not listen to his suggestions on how to negotiate. "I mean she's got to do what she's got to do", he said at the White House as he welcomed Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar for an early St. Patrick's Day celebration.

The president said he had advised British Prime Minister Theresa May how to negotiate her country's divorce from the European Union, but "she didn't listen to that".

Trump added: "I'm surprised at how badly it's all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation".

Asked whether he thinks the United Kingdom should push back its exit date, Trump said: "I think they're probably going to have to do something, because right now they're in the midst of a very short period of time - the end of the month - and they're not going to be able to do that".

Indeed, it would have capped federal spending on the entire program. Trump's proposed Medicare cuts also drew fire from lawmakers. A statement from AARP reflected a mix of praise and concern.

Asked if Brexit is likely to be delayed, Mr Trump said: "I think they are probably going to have to do something because right now they are in the midst of a very short period of time - the end of the month - and they are not going to be able to do that".

Trump said he planned to stay out of the negotiations.

During a press conference with the taoiseach, the USA president confirmed he would make the trip because Ireland is "a special place". "I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner".

Bilateral relations and the Irish undocumented immigrants in the USA were on the agenda for Mr Varadkar's Oval Office meeting with Mr Trump, but Brexit dominated their talks.

Now three MPs from Norway have put her forward for the prestigious prize, which was founded by Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel. She had already challenged leaders in person at the United Nations climate summit in late 2018 and at Davos in January.

Brexit won't spoil the relationship, even given Trump's history of turning on leaders who cross him, said Marquette University historian Timothy G. McMahon, president of the American Conference for Irish Studies. "I regret that Brexit's happening".

Last night, he presented the US President, Donald Trump, with the traditional bowl of shamrock in a ceremony at the White House. Britain's exit from the European Union had been scheduled for March 29. Mr Trump said the "issue on the Border of Ireland is one of the most complex points".

"I predicted it was going to happen, and I was right".

He said it was the UK's decision and the most important thing for Ireland was to avoid a hard Border and protect the peace process. "And I was standing out on Turnberry, and we had a press conference, and people were screaming".
