President Trump

Congratulations to Donald John Trump on being sworn in yesterday as the 45th President of the United States of America. It appears he is very much of what is sometimes referred to as a marmite character – people either live him or hate him.

I hope that he is given a chance before people jump to conclusions. Actions speak louder than words. He was democratically elected and he has many millions of Americans who support him. It has often been said that there is a ‘Special Relationship’ between America and ourselves. Under President Obama who tried to persuade UK voters to stay in the European Union threatening we would be at the back of the queue when it came to negotiating a free trade agreement , now under the new President Trump he wants to see us quickly range such a deal. We can not sign any deal of course until we leave the European Union so we in the U.K. need to concentrate on extracting ourselves from the EU. We can then do a deal with the biggest single economy in the World something our membership of the EU has prevented for over the past four decades.
