I would be “tougher” in Brexit talks than U.K.’s May – The Denver Post

LONDON — U.S. President Donald Trump says he would take a “tougher” attitude toward Brexit negotiations than the approach now being used by British Prime Minister Theresa May.

“Would it be the way I negotiate? No, I wouldn’t negotiate it the way it’s (being) negotiated… I would have had a different attitude,” he says in an ITV interview.

He says: “I would have said that the European Union is not cracked up to what it’s supposed to be.”

Britain is preparing to leave the European Union in March 2019. The complex negotiations have moved slowly and May’s Cabinet seems deeply divided over how best to separate Britain from the 28-nation bloc.

Trump expressed annoyance with EU trade policy: “We cannot get our product in,” he said. “It’s very, very tough. And yet, they send their product to us — no taxes, very little taxes.”

He says his problems with the EU “may morph into something very big” from a trade standpoint.

In the interview with journalist Piers Morgan, Trump has high praise for French President Emmanuel Macron.

“He’s a great guy,” Trump says. “His wife is fantastic. I like them a lot. You know, we had dinner at the top of the Eiffel Tower, and everything was closed.”

He says he looks forward to visiting Britain, where he has been invited for a state visit to be hosted by Queen Elizabeth II, and says he doesn’t care that some Britons want him to stay away.

He even joked about his hair: “It’s hanging in, barely,” he says.
