Theresa May warned against ‘delusional’ hopes of Trump trade deal

Theresa May has been warned by a leading German politician that she is “delusional” if she believes she can get a good trade deal from Donald Trump.

A senior member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Social Democrat coalition partner, Axel Schafer said the PM’s hope that President-elect Trump will look favourably on the UK will come to nothing.

Referring to the shock election of Mr Trump, Mr Schafer told The Times: “What changed is the likelihood of a speedy and preferential trade deal between UK and US.

“Even before Tuesday the chances were rather low, now the hope for this kind of deal seems delusional.”

The pointed remarks came after ministers talked-up the chances of a close working relationship with the surprise winner of the race to the White House.

Underlining the starkly different approach to Mr Trump taken by London and the continent, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told his EU counterparts to end the “whinge-o-rama” over the outcome of the US election.
