Despite a few silly childish losers here and there, the vast majority of British Citizens are glad to welcome Mr. Trump. 

Now let's get out of the ruddy eu asap and make some prosperous trade deals we our great American friends.

America is only a small part of the rest of the world, and I think we would be fools to put all of our eggs in one basket, but trump would like us to do that - he is a businessman after all.

Well we seem to have put all our eggs in one basket with our EU membership, and I don't see how May's pretend Brexit is going to change the situation much.

@burneside, true, so much for 'brexit means brexit'.

I'm hoping for a vote of no confidence and then get a new PM. Perhaps Boris and co are waiting to do it after the presidential visit.

The phrase “silly childish losers” belongs in the same playground as that unforgettable utterance by our defence minister: “shut up and go away”.

Hasn't the US got an obesity epidemic? Might it be something to do with the food that they eat and how it is produced/what is in it? 

 

 "an influx of cheaper, ultra-processed, high-sugar American foods will no doubt come with higher obesity rates"

Britain also has an "obesity epidemic", and nobody will be forced to eat food they don't want to eat.

Yes I know and the point I am making is that it is highly likely this will increase if we import American processed foods. 

Not all people have the financial means to make a choice. They will eat (as they do now) what they can afford.

So between Brexit food shortage and nice indulgent American grub, we should be able to find a perfect balance.

I'd rather have a donut than a croissant any day. However that might explain why I am already obese. Darn!

And to refer to the original post.

Why does anyone think that we will do great trade deals with the US?

Trump is a protectionist.  He has already started to impose import tariffs.  

Any trade deals he does he will have to 'win'. That is what seems to drive him.

"America First".

I find it so hard to understand how anybody can support Trump, it really boggles me noggin. 

I heard a caller on LBC who claimed that everything that was said against him was fake news. Is that why? Trump even tried to claim that the Sun interview was fake news despite the fact that it was recorded.

How can anyone trust someone as dumb and who lies constantly?

And now he's backtracking on what he said to Putin (in public) about the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 US presidential election.

According to Trump he (Trump) "mis-spoke".
