Trump says U.S. hopes for quick trade deal with UK

Mrs May has said she hopes Mr Trump will take the USA back into the Paris Agreement.

Trump said afterwards that he expects a trade deal with the United Kingdom to be completed "very, very quickly".

He has confirmed he will visit London, without specifying when.

The report noted that climate change - a no-brainer issue for every other world superpower - is the one remaining sticking point for the group of 20 nations, and the group worked until 2 a.m.to come to some type of agreement.

The Obama administration had chosen to put a European trade deal ahead of one with the U.K. But Trump said Saturday that a U.S. -U.K. agreement will be "done very very quickly".

The G20 leaders meeting in Hamburg say they plan to "continue the fight against protectionism, including all unfair trade practices", but also acknowledged "the role of legitimate defence instruments in trade", officials told dpa.

Japan's new trade deal with the European Union, signed off on Thursday, "could form the basis" of an agreement between London and Tokyo following Brexit, Mrs May told the Japanese premier.

In their June 2016 referendum, the majority of the British citizens voted in favor of Brexit (51.9% to 48.1%).


The discussions with the US President come against a backdrop of tension though, as Trump's stance on trade and climate change - announcing he would withdraw the US from the Paris agreement last month - has proved tricky for other world leaders.

Theresa May paid a visit to Trump in the White House earlier this year, shortly after his inauguration. Asked when, he replied: "We'll work that out".

He said he had developed a "very special" relationship with the prime minister, mirroring language often used to describe the broader historic ties between the US and the UK.

'There is no country that could possibly be closer than our countries'.

"We're working on a trade deal which will be a very, very big deal, a very powerful deal, great for both countries", Trump told reporters as he met with May.

Trump is set to return to Washington Saturday evening. Trump is also looking for high-value bilateral deals as he threatens to pull the USA out of multilateral trade agreements, including NAFTA.

"I will be making that message".

"I wouldn't actually believe anything actually that the Kremlin is putting out", he said.
