UK Prime Minister Theresa May says President Donald Trump advised her to sue the European Union -- rather than go into negotiations with them.
May shared details of their meeting with the BBC’s Andrew Marr on Sunday.
"He told me I should sue the EU -- not go into negotiations, sue them. Actually, no, we’re going into negotiations with them. But interestingly what the President also said at that press conference was don’t walk away -- don’t walk away from negotiations, because then you’re stuck."
The US President said Friday during a joint news conference with May that he had given the Prime Minister a suggestion that she had found too "brutal."
May said it would allow the UK to strike trade deals with other nations, end free movement of people, and end the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.
