Trump: We will 'fully seize' free trade opportunity with UK

United States President Donald Trump said on Friday, during his official visit to the United Kingdom that the US wants to sign a bilateral free trade agreement with the UK. He stated that Washington will "fully seize the opportunity" for free trade with London.

Trump said that the UK is free to negotiate with the European Union freely and that he is aware the negotiations will be "difficult." He, however, reminded that it is important for Washington and London to continue trading "freely."

Trumps remarks came after the UK Prime Minister Theresa May said that her government wants to pursue an "ambitious trade agreement" after her country leaves the EU. She pointed out that the preservation of good economic relations, as well as the transatlantic alliance, is key for the two countries' future relationship.
