After meeting with President Trump Friday, British Prime Minister Theresa May said the UK is still in the process of extracting itself from the European Union, but stressed Britain and the U.S. are discussing how to negotiate a trade agreement quickly.
Trump stressed the importance of a strong relationship with Britain and lauded UK voters' decision to exit the EU, or Brexit.
The National Farmers Union President says President Donald Trump’s negotiating style could trigger a trade war, as he pursues bilateral trade deals with other countries.
