Trump to seek trade deal with Britain after Brexit


Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the Trump administration will pursue a free-trade agreement with Britain as soon as possible after Britain leaves the European Union. Pompeo says the administration remains committed to respecting the British decision on Brexit however it "ultimately shakes out." He made his comments at a news conference with visiting British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab on his first visit to Washington in that position. Raab said new British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his government are "absolutely resolved" to leave the EU on October 31 and that Britain would work with the US to forge a free-trade agreement as soon as possible after that date.
