Trump on Theresa May's Brexit plan: 'I don't know if that's what they voted for'

President Trump on Thursday waded into the U.K. battle over Brexit, casting doubt on Prime Minister Theresa May’s approach to leaving the European Union by suggesting it’s not what Brits voted for.

Before departing for London, he told reporters in Brussels amid a summit with NATO leaders that "it's not for me to say" what Britain should do. But later in his remarks, he indicated that he didn't agree with the current approach.

"I would say Brexit is Brexit...the people voted to break it up,” Trump said. “So I would imagine ... that's what they'll do but maybe they're taking a bit of a different route. So I don’t know if that's what they voted for.”

“I just want the people to be happy and they’re great people,” he said before adding: "I don't know what's going on with the negotiations. Who knows?"

His remarks came shortly before he flew to London for a three-day working visit, where he will meet with both May and Queen Elizabeth II.

Trump made reference to the protests due to be held in London on Friday.

“There might be protests but...I think those people they like me a lot and they agree with me on immigration. I think that’s why you had Brexit in the first place, because of immigration,” he said.

May, meanwhile, is fighting for her political life after the resignation of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis this week in protest of her latest Brexit plan — which critics say is too soft and will lead to Britain being a “colony” of the E.U.

The high-profile resignations were sparked by May demanding cabinet members support a plan for Brexit that would include Britain partly remaining in the single market and signing up to a "common rulebook" for goods.

Johnson, a vocal backer of Trump, suggested May was surrendering to Brussels.

"It is as though we are sending our vanguard into battle with the white flags fluttering above them," he wrote in his resignation letter.

Trump has since praised Johnson and suggested he will talk to the former foreign secretary while in London.

“I like him,” Trump said of Johnson Tuesday. “Boris Johnson is a friend of mine.”

When asked whether May would remain in power, the president responded: “That’s up to the people—not up to me.”

So will trump cuck prince william or prince harry while visiting the queen? Itd be lovely to have an american bastard in the royal family.

You're incredibly naive if you think Trump shoots anything but dust.

He has a lot of kids with several women hood, you are simply in denial.

Had. He had a lot of kids. 70 year olds just don't go spawning many children. Methinks you are simply in denial of biology if you think a 70 year old man is just going to up and impregnate someone.

Well, its nice to know you take umbrage with my statement that trump would have a child with one of the women in the royal family... and not that he would be able to cuck william or harry.

That part is not really worth an argument, as there is no breaching those enveloped in his cult of personality.

I just watched the press conference between the two leaders.

Looks like they are on the same page and instep.

I saw no animosity.

This was pretty much an informal meeting.

They did not even talk politics.

Just High Tea with casual conversation.

Yes HR, we know you are repeating what fox news talking heads said. Next time attempt to not copy it verbatum.
