‘We’re having very good trade talks. There’s going to be a very big trade deal, bigger than we’ve ever had with the U.K. and now, at some point, they won’t have the obstacle. They won’t have the anchor around their ankle because that’s what they’ve had. So, we’re going to have some very good trade talks’ President Trump said speaking on trade negotiations with China.

Discussions reportedly came head Sunday at the G7 summit, where President Trump and Prime Minister Boris Johnson conducted their first bilateral meeting over a working breakfast.

President Trump touted new trade deals on the horizon and said it is great working with Prime Minister Johnson, adding he is the ‘right man’ to deliver brexit.

Johnson said he hopes Britain can take advantage of all of the huge opportunities in the U.S. market.

The U.S. and U.K. are expected to finalize a trade deal sometime after Britain exits the EU.
