"Once the Brexit process is concluded and perhaps the United Kingdom has left the European Union, I don't know what they're going to do but whatever you do is OK with me, that's your decision", Trump said.

"I don't think he would have done that if I were president", Trump responded.

"The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on", he said.
