Theresa May has resigned as prime minister over her Brexit deal
                

Last week, Mrs May – whose withdrawal agreement with the EU was rejected by the UK Parliament three times – announced that she would quit as Conservative party leader on 7 June but stay in office until a successor was found.

[Mr Trump] wants to make a deal with Britain that will leave both of us better off, and free Britain from the regulatory constraints it faces with the EU, "Mr Bolton said.

What has Trump said about Brexit? The US president, who has previously said Mrs May did not listen to his advice on how to negotiate a deal with the EU, said the agreement reached by the prime minister sounded "like a great deal for the EU".

He had also raised fears that, during Mrs. May's Brexit deal, the US and the UK would not be able to negotiate a free trade agreement.

Mr Trump has said he might meet Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage and Conservative MP Boris Johnson – one of the 11 contenders to replace Mrs May as Conservative leader – during his trip to the UK.
