May says Trump told her to 'sue the EU'

"I'm sure Theresa May does not want to split the Conservative Party and therefore she will find that the inevitable outcome of the parliamentary arithmetic is that she will need to change it (the Brexit policy) to keep the party united", Rees-Mogg said.

Donald Trump advised Theresa May to "sue" the European Union instead of negotiating with them, the prime minister has claimed.

British Prime Minister Theresa May bowed to pressure on Monday from euroskeptics in her ruling Conservative Party by agreeing to a series of amendments to a bill setting up a new customs regime after Brexit.

The party's European research group said it will reject any last attempts at compromise by the Prime Minister as they hope to force her to change course over Brexit or risk a no-confidence vote before the summer break by demonstrating the depth of their support.

In her interview with the BBC on Sunday, May reiterated that the United Kingdom will end free movement of labour, will exit the Customs Union and will end European Court of Justice jurisdiction.

"Interestingly, what the president also said at that press conference was 'Don't walk away, '" May told the BBC.

"The only solution is to take the final Brexit decision out of the hands of deadlocked politicians, away from the backroom deals, and give it back to the people", she wrote in an article in The Times.

But, fuelled by criticism from U.S. President Donald Trump and anger among grassroots party members, the sentiment against May has gained fresh momentum.

He said there's no allegation in the indictment as to whether they actually did affect it, labeling that speculative. Rosenstein said the internet " allows foreign adversaries to attack Americans in new and unexpected ways".

In a sometimes heated debate Conservative Anna Soubry said the plan May agreed at her meeting with ministers at her Cheqeurs retreat had now been wrecked by caving in to no-deal Brexiteers.

Earlier this week, May government published its long-awaited Brexit plans, which propose to keep Britain and the European Union in a free market for goods, with a more distant relationship for services.

"I was sitting down as a female leader with the President of the United States talking about issues that are of great importance to the people of the USA, the people of the UK, but also actually of great importance around the world".

"I think we're gonna have a great trade deal - there's really no doubt... whatever they do, they have to make sure that you have a carve-out - where no matter what they do, they have a right to get a deal with the U.S".

"Last week, the government's Brexit White Paper told the country it could look forward to a "common rule book" with the EU".

May, vulnerable in parliament after losing her party's majority at an ill-judged election past year, has come under fire from both wings of her party over a hard-won Brexit plan, with one ex-minister calling it the "worst of all worlds".

But she said she believed continuing to push for agreement was better than a "no-deal" outcome.

The plan has triggered two ministerial resignations - of David Davis and Boris Johnson - and a number of Conservative Party resignations. "I have come to the conclusion that it does not respect the referendum result - it is not what people voted for", he said.
