Theresa May, Trump agree to pursue trade deal, prime minister says

Prime Minister Theresa May, speaking during a joint press conference with President Donald Trump. said Friday that the United Kingdom and the United States will pursue an “ambitious” free trade deal following the U.K.’s exit from the European Union.

Why it matters: The announcement followed bilateral talks at May’s country house in Chequers, where tensions were expected to run high after Trump told British tabloid The Sun that a trade deal would be off the table if the U.K. initiates a soft Brexit plan and keeps close ties to the EU.
