Brexit Briefing: Trump Backs Brexit at NATO Meeting in UK

What's on this page

GBP price, Brexit news and analysis:

  • US President Donald Trump, in the UK for a meeting of the NATO defense organization, has again backed Brexit while staying clear of UK politics.
  • GBP/USD has broken above resistance at 1.30.

GBP jumps; Trump supports Brexit

US President Donald Trump, who is in the UK for a 70th anniversary meeting of the NATO defense alliance, has again voiced his support for Brexit. Speaking on a three-day visit, Trump said he would stay out of the UK General Election but that he is a “fan of Brexit” and thinks UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is “very capable” and will do a good job.

His comments came as a row over the funding of the UK’s National Health Service rumbles on, with the main opposition Labour Party still arguing that post-Brexit talks with the US on a new trade deal could see the UK forced to accept US corporations gaining access to elements of the NHS or pushing up drug prices.

In the meantime, GBP/USD has finally broken above the 1.30 round-number resistance level, although that appears unrelated to the General Election or Brexit.
