Kassam in Daily Caller: Trump Has Britain’s Back (and America’s) On Brexit

Back in Blighty, politicians of all stripes are clamoring to avoid fulfilling what the British public demanded in our 2016 Brexit vote. Thankfully, it looks like the American president at least has our back.

That’s because Trump — a businessman — sees opportunity in all things, whereas sadly the British mentality has been one of managed decline since at least the 1970s.

In the White House Rose Garden today, the president announced: “With the U.K. we’re continuing our trade and we’re going to be increasing it very substantially as time goes by … We’re agreeing to go forward and preserve our trade agreement … We have a very good trading relationship with the U.K. and that’s just been strengthened further.’’

The news — buried beneath the cavalcade of CNN contributors bemoaning the border security national emergency — reveals a welcome injection of $16.5 billion of trade in the relationship between the two nations. If Trump is right and this expands further, both countries are in for a Brexit windfall.
