    I am wondering what sort of a trade deal might be worked out with the UK after Brexit. Any thoughts?

    Whatever they want. The fundamental problem is that the UK has more or less given in to ridiculous EU standards on many things in the name of health and safety so the most obvious things like food and medicine might be hamstringed by their combination of bizarre laws about ingredient ratios etc and VAT's.

    Trump has already told Johnson he's open to a large trade agreement. I expect it to gel fairly quickly.

    Such a trade deal could be to the detriment of the EU, with whom Trump is not happy.

    Individual1 will exploit the UK's desperation mercilessly as he puts America first. It will be hilarious to watch BoJo explain away the shafting.

    I think President Trump will be inclined to support a generous trade deal with the UK to help it out after Brexit.

    Trump will make it worth their while and at the same time will stick it to the EU. While Trump and Boris are buddies, he doesent care much for the frogges or the krauts these days. Well wait till the conservative wave washes over the European continent and cleans away all the communist, collective bullshit.
