REES-MOGG: Trump Our ‘Greatest Ally’ Post-Brexit
Jacob Rees-Mogg has welcomed Donald Trump’s visit to Britain in July saying it is “well-timed”.
Following Brexit, Mr Rees-Mogg argues that Britain will have “something genuine” to offer the US.
“After Brexit, the US and Britain could push our shared values in all international forums, arguing for new solutions for the next generation rather than being held back by the EU’s efforts to protect vested interests.”
Mr Rees-Mogg pointed to how Mr Trump “inspires” Brexiteers due to his appeal voters who had been “left-behind”:
“He appealed to voters left behind by the metropolitan elite and he exudes confidence about his own nation and a determination not to be a manager of the decline, which also inspires the Brexiteers.”
However, this opportunity is dependent on Mr Trump remaining President as any other President would attempt to “frustrate” Brexit and therefore Britain should ensure that when Mr Trump visits the red carpet should be “spotless”. It must be evidence of our “close-relationship”, Mr Rees-Mogg said.
