President Donald Trump promised the U.S. and U.K. could as much as triple their trade after Brexit, but stirred controversy by hinting that Britain’s government-run health system could be opened to American companies.

Trump said later in an interview with ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” that the U.K.’s National Health Service wouldn’t be part of trade negotiations.
