Brexit: Donald Trump blasts Theresa May for not taking his advice

Brexit: Donald Trump blasts Theresa May for not taking his advice

On the prospect of another referendum, Mr Trump said: "I don't think another vote would be possible because it would be very unfair to the people that won".

In his speech, Mr Varadkar said: "Your ambition is to "Make America Great Again", and I think we can already see some of the results of that".

He said he told Mr Trump there was an opportunity for an EU-US trade deal.

Varadkar said that Trump and he each have "a different opinion" of the decision to leave the European Union, and said, "I regret that Brexit's happening".

Trump invited his Irish counterpart, the prime minister, a position known in Ireland as taoiseach, to weigh in, and Varadkar noted that he had a "different opinion" from Trump.

But he now he says: "The potential is unlimited!" Mr Trump said the "issue on the Border of Ireland is one of the most complex points". "There is every expectation in Washington that a U.S. -U.K. trade deal could be in place by the end of 2019 if Brexit goes forward this month and Britain successfully leaves the Customs Union".

Turning to Mr Varadkar, he said: "Leo, I'm sure you agree on that".

The Dolphins will likely release Tannehill with a June 1 designation in order to save $18.75 million in salary-cap space. Bridgewater was chosen by the Vikings in the 1st round of the 2014 draft and made the Pro Bowl in 2015.

Mr Trump told reporters he did not believe a second Brexit referendum could be justified, saying it would be "unfair" to the 52 percent of Britons who voted Leave.

"I thought it would happen, it did happen, and both sides are very, very cemented in. That was the day before, if you remember", Trump said describing his visit during the presidential campaign to his golf resort in Scotland.

Trump spoke hours before British lawmakers voted to delay Brexit for at least three months.

Asked whether he thinks the United Kingdom should push back its exit date, Trump said: "I think they're probably going to have to do something, because right now they're in the midst of a very short period of time - the end of the month - and they're not going to be able to do that".

This prompted Mr Trump to complain about how the U.S. was treated in trade talks with the European Union and he warned of tariffs being slapped on European Union products.

Trump, who holds himself up as a master deal-maker, said he had given Prime Minister Theresa May his ideas on how she could negotiate a successful deal for leaving the 28-member group of nations.

During a press conference with the taoiseach, the United States president confirmed he would make the trip because Ireland is "a special place". He said: "If they don't talk to us, we're going to do something pretty severe economically".
