According to the White House, cited by Reuters, Trump supports a Brexit that will not affect global economic and financial stability while also securing independence for the United Kingdom.
Trump said earlier on Monday that discussions are already underway on a trade agreement with the UK. "A Big Trade Deal is possible once the UK gets rid of the shackles. Already starting to talk!" Trump said in a tweet.
Trump and Melania landed on the lawn of Buckingham Palace, where Queen Elizabeth welcomed them for a full day of royal ceremonies. The first couple was treated to a viewing of the royal gift collection at the palace, followed by a tour of Westminster Abbey, tea with Prince Charles and Camilla, and a state banquet with the Queen.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that she would be stepping down as Conservative leader and, subsequently, as prime minister, on 7 June, after failing to achieve a consensus in parliament and within her own party over the country's withdrawal from the European Union.
