US wants to start on UK trade deal very soon: Kudlow
The US wants to soon start work on a trade deal with the UK after recently closing agreements with Mexico and Canada and with China, President Donald Trump’s top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, said on Monday.
“We look forward to a trade deal with Prime Minister Boris Johnson; we’ll probably get started on that very soon,” Kudlow said in Washington. He said he plans to visit the UK early next year with National Security Council official Matthew Pottinger.
Johnson, who won a clear parliamentary majority in an election last week, spoke with Trump by phone on Monday, discussing issues including ‘the negotiation of an ambitious free-trade agreement’, the prime minister’s office said in an emailed statement.
