Lamont: Trump Win a Psychological Boost for Brexit Talks
Will the arrival of Donald Trump in the White House affect the departure of the U.K. from the European Union? Trump’s unexpected win four months after the Brexit surprise could mean European leaders will be even more focused on ensuring their own re-elections, forcing engagement with Britain down the pecking order of importance. But Prime Minister Theresa May’s government spent Thursday engaging with the world’s two biggest economies, hoping both will help power the U.K. economy after Brexit. She spoke with U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, her office saying afterwards that she “highlighted her wish to strengthen bilateral trade and investment with the U.S. as we leave the EU.” Former U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer Norman Lamont and British Chambers of Commerce Director General Adam Marshall discuss with Francine Lacqua on "Bloomberg Surveillance."
