Trump says US supports Britain in Brexit talks

President Donald Trump says the US supports the British people’s decision to “realize full self-government” as the UK negotiates an exit from the European Union.

Of the negotiations toward an exit, Trump said, “We will see how that goes.”

He called it a “very complicated negotiation.” A slim majority of Britons voted in 2016 to break from the EU.

Trump criticized Prime Minister Theresa May’s handling of the so-called Brexit negotiations in an interview with a British tabloid published Thursday.

Trump also thanked May for her “very gracious hospitality.” The prime minister welcomed the American president to her official residences outside London.

The leaders are holding a news conference following meetings Friday at Chequers, May’s official country estate.
