British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office has defended the UK’s Brexit deal with the European Union following criticism from the US President Donald Trump.
Trump waded into the British election campaign on Thursday saying the US can’t make a trade deal with Britain under Johnson’s EU withdrawal agreement.
But Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick said the prime minister’s plan was a good deal that allows the UK to strike free trade deals around the world and take back control of its laws, trade, borders and money.
The UK is going to the polls on December 12 following a further delay to the Brexit deal till January 31, 2020. Boris Johnson hopes to win a majority of seats so that he can get his deal through Parliament.
