WATCH: Trump told PM to sue the EU

President Trump advised the Prime Minister to “sue the EU”, Theresa May revealed today on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show.

Marr asked: “The whole country wants to know, Prime Minister: what was that brutal, tough suggestion?”

“He told me I should sue the EU,” May replied. “Not go into negotiations, sue them. Actually, no, we’re going into negotiations with them.”

Remainer Labour MP Chuka Umunna reacted on Twitter:

No10 will likely be pleased that Theresa May was given the opportunity to answer a question in a straightforward way, and also the chance to quash any suggestion promoted by Brexiteer Tory MPs that she should have listened to the US President’s advice.
