The US President, Donald Trump said his outgoing administration and Washington is ready to build “stronger transatlantic ties.”
This development occurred after Mr. Trump congratulated Britain and the EU on their post-Brexit trade deal.
A message from the national security officials at White House posted on Twitter read: “Congrats to the UK and the EU for concluding a historic Brexit deal,”
“The US stands ready to work with all to build even stronger transatlantic relations in the years ahead.”
After months of tortuous negotiations, Britain and the European Union secured the deal on Thursday, AFP reports.
Meanwhile, British Brexit supporters have long promised a new and favorable trade deal with the United States to compensate their exit from the EU.
Mr. Trump, who supported Brexit and has good ties with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, seemed like their natural ally.
But the British will have to deal with Democrat Joe Biden, who becomes US president on January 20 and is set on strengthening multilateral cooperation, especially with the European Union.
