Trump WILL STOP US-UK Brexit deal if he is not invited to Royal Wedding in shock claim
Donald Trump would stop a Brexit trade deal with the US if he is not invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, the author of an explosive new book has claimed.
Michael Wolff, the author of Fire And Fury: Inside The Trump White House, suggested that the UK could jeopardise a Brexit trade deal with the US if Donald Trump is not invited to the Royal Wedding on May 19.
Prince Harry and Meghan reportedly want former president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle to attend their wedding.
Government officials are worried, however, that President Trump will take great offence if he is not invited as well.
Meghan branded the billionaire as “divisive” and “misogynistic” last year.
The future royal is also believed to be a fan of Hillary Clinton, who Trump defeated in the US Presidential Election.
Mr Wolff said: “If the Brits give him what he wants he will value the Brits.”
In an interview with the Mail on Sunday, the political writer also said: “He doesn’t like being snubbed and wants to be the centre of attention all the time.
“Trump’s foreign policy doctrine is simple: you Brits suck up to him and enlist in whatever geopolitical fantasy he has going, he’ll give you what you want – though only if it doesn’t hurt him.
“It is not so much vengeance, rather ‘you flatter me and I’ll flatter you’.”
Mr Wolff also revealed that Trump “had no idea what Brexit was” two weeks before the referendum back in 2016.
He said: “I interviewed Trump two weeks before your 2016 referendum and he had no idea what Brexit was.”
The author also claimed that the President would abuse his planned state visit to the UK by “Trumpalising” the Queen, treating her as though she is on one of his reality TV shows.
He warned that Theresa May’s offer of a State visit to the UK, made weeks after Mr Trump was elected, could backfire.
It was seen as a bid to pursue him into giving Britain a lucrative post-Brexit UK-US trade deal.
But Mr Wolff claimed Mr Trump sees it purely as an opportunity to show off and outshine the Queen.
The Fire and Fury author added: “He sees the Queen in reality TV show terms. That’s the Trump modus operandi. He will try to Trumpalise the Queen and Buckingham Palace.”
The American author also made fresh claims about the President’s mental state, saying some officials believed the 71-year-old had learning disabilities or even dementia.
Others thought he might have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Mr Wolff also stood by his account of Tony Blair’s secret visit to the White House.
He dismissed Mr Blair’s denial that he told Trump MI6 may have spied on him.
The award-winning political writer said the allegation came from Trump himself and claimed the former prime minister had been trying to “curry favour” with the new President.
Mr Wolff said he was “astounded” by the global impact of his book, which was based on months inside the White House West Wing and interviews with more than 200 people, many of whom had very close ties with the President, including former chief strategist Steve Bannon.
The White House has described the book as “complete fantasy”.
