President Trump on Thursday waded into the U.K. battle over Brexit, casting doubt on Prime Minister Theresa May’s approach to leaving the European Union by suggesting it’s not what Brits voted for.
"I would say Brexit is Brexit...the people voted to break it up,” Trump said.
May, meanwhile, is fighting for her political life after the resignation of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis this week in protest of her latest Brexit plan — which critics say is too soft and will lead to Britain being a “colony” of the E.U.
Johnson, a vocal backer of Trump, suggested May was surrendering to Brussels.
Trump has since praised Johnson and suggested he will talk to the former foreign secretary while in London.
