Responding to President Trump’s comments on Brexit, John Longworth, Co-Chair of Leave Means Leave said:

“President Trump has confirmed that the world’s largest economy – bigger than the EU27 – will not do a trade deal based on the terms of the White Paper.

“The Prime Minister must make some serious changes to the White Paper as, in its current form, it is a block to trade deals with the rest of the world.

“The Department for International Trade is completely redundant under the Government’s current proposals. It is shocking that Liam Fox is accepting the annihilation of his entire department.”
