U.S. Ambassador to London Woody Johnson has hailed Britains departure from the European Union, reaffirming President Trumps enthusiasm for a free, world-facing United Kingdom and a future trade deal.
The written message came in the final hours of Britains membership of the EU, when Ambassador Robert Woody Johnson noted the historic occasion and expressed his good wishes to the United Kingdom in the next chapter of her national history.
Hailing the transatlantic special relationship, the Ambassador said the United Kingdom and the United States would go forward to face global challenges together.
Making clear the United States support for Britain, Ambassador Johnson wrote: America shares your optimism and excitement about the many opportunities the future will bring one of those opportunities very evidently being the hotly-anticipated future free trade agreement between the two nations.
I would like to wish the UK every success as you chart a new path outside of the EU. We share your optimism and excitement about the many opportunities the future will bring. pic.twitter.com/6H216ZalHL

A British-American trade deal has been a core part of the Brexit story since before even the 2016 referendum, with the fact that European Union laws and conventions ban its member-states from striking their own trade deals being a sticking point for many Eurosceptics during Britains membership of the bloc.
This dynamic took on a dramatic turn in the runup to the 2016 Brexit referendum, when then-U.S. President Barack Obama told the British people that Britain would be at the back of the queue for a trade deal should it ever dare leave the European Union at the request of then-Prime Minister David Cameron.

The glue that holds the EU together is the ability to borrow cheaply in the Euro.
The rest of the EU deal is like having to live with a overcontrolling mother-in-law.
Look at how well we did after the Brits left!
I suspect other nations will leave in the not too distant future. If two or more leave soon, it could be catching.

A British-American trade deal has been a core part of the Brexit story... in the runup to the 2016 Brexit referendum... then-U.S. President Barack Obama told the British people that Britain would be at the back of the queue for a trade deal should it ever dare leave the European Union at the request of then-Prime Minister David Cameron.
The fact that Cameron won the Commons outright, then resigned rather than lead the UK out of the EU, shows that the muzzie pig's lame-duck public threat had little to do with Cameron's bitter clinger/remainer moves. Either Cameron was a POS from the git-go, or he was under threat by the Kenyan's dirty tricks cadre -- or both.
Agree with that which you posit, already underway and will be come a stampede once it happens
It has been my thought that Europe would never hold together.
This goes back to another age and the Babylonian idol.
The feet/toes were made of iron and clay, which would never hold together.
Some folks have thought of the feet as Europe.
Babylon, Persia, Alexander the Great, the Roman Empire, and the break up of power to the nations of Europe.
Not sure anyone is into this much, but it does seem to fit what took place.
It’s spoken of in Daniel 2.
All the kings horses and all the kings men, couldn’t put Humpty together again
“Obama’s “crap touch”, as effective as always..
The black hand of fate is still at work in the many bureaus of the Deep State.
That bastard, Obama, should be charged with treason with all of the other operatives in the FBI, NSC, CIA, IRS, and the DNC. Chief Justice Roberts should be impeached and the persons who pull his strings arrested. Those, who are controlling Roberts, have something that they are holding over his head that Roberts can’t have revealed.
What could that be??
