Umunna – Time for the PM to stop “running after a desperate deal with the Donald”

Theresa May and Donald Trump met in Davos as the Prime Minister continued to seek a trade deal with Donald Trump after Brexit.

Commenting, Chuka Umunna MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said: 

“Once again Theresa May has decided to play a game of chlorinated chicken.

"A trade deal with Donald Trump's America would mean lowering our food and animal welfare standards, and being cowed into importing hormone-injected beef and other monstrosities.

“The Prime Minister should stop running after a desperate deal with the Donald and instead focus on keeping the UK as close as possible to the EU, our largest trade partner."
