Donald Trump says UK trade deal is his priority

Donald Trump has told the Times that a trade deal with the UK will be a priority when he takes office this week.

He said that the UK is "doing great" after the referendum and that we are "smart" to be getting out of the EU. He went on to say that whilst Barack Obama had said that the UK would be at the "back of the queue" we would, in fact, be at the "front of the line". Obama's statement was believed to have been requested by Project Fear as an American would say "back of the line".

Trump's promise that the UK will be a priority for a trade deal has prompted a swift response from the EU who have said that they won't allow negotiations to even start until after we leave.

What are they going to do? Chuck us out?
