Boris Johnson recently suggested President Trump take over Brexit for us. Although Theresa May wasn’t too happy about the idea:

Regardless of May’s concerns, Trump has now provided us with what he described as:
The best breakfast plan ever [sic]. Seriously.
The hastily scribbled plan came written on the back of a cheeseburger wrapper. It advised:
- Tell those sneaky Eurotrash that if they don’t give in to your demands, you’ll separate from mainland Europe. Threaten to build a sea between England and France, and tell them Belgium is paying for it.
- Isn’t Harry Potter British? Can he cast a spell at that angry European woman who doesn’t like me? I think her name is Theresa May.
- Tell the EU they’re all big losers, and you don’t need them anyway, because your buddy America will look out for you. What you don’t know is that we’re gonna turn your country into a Trump-brand golf course – ha ha ha [THIS SECOND PART WAS SCRIBBLED OUT BUT STILL QUITE CLEARLY LEGIBLE].
- I’ll be honest – I’m not entirely sure what the EU is. That’s a good thing, though. Facts will slow you down!
- Don’t leave without getting the oil.
- Hmm, I need to ask Donald Trump Jr. why I started this list.
- I wonder what Stormy Daniels is up to these days? I had sex with her, you know. Bigly.
- I’ll have ketchup on all of that, thanks.
- Love Donald Trump (The President).
The UK’s Brexit team is said to be considering Trump’s suggestions. Although they are worried the plan is a bit too detailed for them.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
