Donald Trump adviced me to sue EU: Theresa May

London, July 15 (IBNS): British Prime Minister Theresa May has said US President Donald Trump adviced her to sue the European Union rather than negotiate over Brexit.

Trump, who was in the UK, recently said during a press conference that he had given May a suggestion but she had found it too "brutal".

Asked by BBC what it was he had said, she replied: "He told me I should sue the EU - not go into negotiations."

May said she will continue the negotiation option over the Brexit issue.

May told BBC: "Interestingly, what the president also said at that press conference was 'don't walk away'."

"Don't walk away from those negotiations because then you'll be stuck. So I want us to be able to sit down to negotiate the best deal for Britain," she said.

As per a BBC report, a White Paper published on Thursday fleshed out details of her plan, which advocates close links with the EU on trade in goods, but not services.

Interestingly, Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson had resigned last week before the paper was published.
