British Labour Party politician Andrew Adonis, a member of Parliament, on Tuesday asserted that President Donald Trump likely “killed off” the “Brexit” plan to split Britain from the European Union.

At a press conference with British Prime Minister Teresa May, Trump declared that the United Kingdom’s National Health Service is “on the table” as Brexit negotiations continue.

Trump’s remarks came after U.S. ambassador to the U.K. Woody Johnson told BBC that the Trump administration would like to see U.S. corporations making money off of British national health care.

“Trump literally said in his press conference that the NHS is ‘on the table’ in a trade deal with the U.S.,” Adonis wrote on Twitter.

“He just killed off Brexit,” the Labour politician added hopefully.

Published

on

On Tuesday, an unprecedented House vote to condemn President Donald Trump's attacks on four congresswomen as racist descended into chaos. The parliamentarian ruled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's criticism of the president out of order, triggering an initial floor vote to let her speak and a failed Republican vote to strike her words from the record.

As former FBI Special Agent Asha Rangappa remarked on Twitter, the whole episode was humiliating for the United States, and presumably a proud moment for Russian President Vladimir Putin:
