President Donald Trump criticizes the british prime minister, Theresa May, for her handling of the brexit.
The us president believes that a new brexit referendum would be unfair to the brits, who voted no to continued membership of the EU in the referendum in 2016.
Trump says he last year during a visit to England gave May good advice on how she should negotiate with the EU. But she heard not after.
- I can tell you, that I'm surprised how badly it has all gone, when it comes to negotiations, he says to reporters in The Oval office, where he has a meeting with Ireland's prime minister, Leo Varadkar.
I gave the prime minister my proposal for how that should be negotiated, and I think that it would have been successful. She did not listen to it, and it is quite in order. I mean ... she must do what she must do. But I think it could have been negotiated in a different way, quite frankly.
A new referendum on brexit, as it has sounded for in the british parliament, believes Trump would be unfair.
- I hate to see that everything is being torn into pieces right now. I don't think a new vote would be possible, for it would be very unfair for the people who won, he thinks.
He promises, moreover, not to interfere in the negotiations.
Trump has a close relationship to the former leader of the nationalist british party Ukip Nigel Farage. Critics claim that Trumps the knowledge of the european UNION, he has heard from the heavily UNION-hostile Farage.
After Trump won the presidential election in 2016, was Farage, the first foreign political leader he met.
