Macron sits in SILENCE as Donald Trump tells him Brexit 'will all work out' for Britain

US President travelled with other world leaders to France on Thursday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, which marked the Allied forces invasion of Normandy in 1944. Sitting alongside French President Emmanuel Macron in Caen, Mr Trump insisted that would “all work out”. The US President claimed the UK and EU were both “working very hard” to find a way forward, but noted the importance of a new leader taking over from Prime Minister Theresa May.

He said: “That’s really going to be between the UK and the European Union and they are working very hard, I know they are working very hard together.

“It doesn’t seem to be working out, but at some point, something will happen, one way or another. It will all work out.

“I am interested to finding out how it happens also.”

Mr Trump then highlighted the importance of the next British Prime Minister to take over outgoing Mrs May.

He said: “Very big will be who is going to be your next Prime Minister over in the UK. That’s going to be a very big thing.

“That is happening now, so I think before you can think in terms of Brexit, for the next few weeks, you are going to have to find out what happens, who is going to be the new leader.

“That is a very interesting situation taking place.

“I found it to be a very, amazing period of time. Especially spending so much time with the Queen, who is an incredible lady.

“There are a lot of question marks over who is going to be leading…but it will all work out”.

So far 11 Conservative Party MPs have put their names forward to take over from Mrs May when she reigns as party leader on Friday.

During his official state visit to the UK, Mr Trump praised former foreign secretary Boris Johnson and current Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

Speaking at a press conference alongside Mrs May on Tuesday, Mr Trump said: “I know Boris, I like him, I have liked him for a long time. I think he would do a very good job.”

The US President then gestured towards the current Foreign Secretary Mr Hunt and said: “I know Jeremy, I think he would do a very good job.”
