There is no chance that a trade agreement between the United States and Britain will pass Congress if Brexit undermines the Good Friday peace accord between Ireland and Northern Ireland, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday.
‘Whatever form it takes, Brexit cannot be allowed to imperil the Good Friday Agreement, including the seamless border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland,’ Pelosi said in a statement.
‘If Brexit undermines the Good Friday accord, there will be no chance of a U.S.-UK trade agreement passing the Congress,’ the Democratic head of the U.S. House of Representatives added, first reported by Politico.
The Trump administration is negotiating a free trade deal with Britain that would go into effect after it completes its exit from European Union. The departure is scheduled for Oct. 31.
But any agreement would have to pass the U.S. Congress, which is split between Democrats in the House and President Donald Trump’s fellow Republicans in the Senate.
HMMMM, So why would pelosi sink a deal that would allow free trade with the UK and US after Brexit and benefit both countries!
