Donald Trump’s fourfold Brexit trade boost claim gets thumbs down from No10 | London

Donald Trump’s fourfold Brexit trade boost claim gets thumbs down from No10 | London | Press coverage | Scoop.it
Donald Trump's boast that US-UK trade would “quadruple” after Brexit was doused in cold water today as the Government published its proposals for a future agreement. Far from the surge that the US President predicted, the Government assessment put it at around a 7.5 per cent increase in trade flows, worth around £15.3 billion. For London, the boost to the economy would be £650 million which leading economist Howard Archer pointed out was “hardly a game-changer”.
ukandeu's insight:

Economist Jonathan Portes described the more sober assessment published by the Department for International Trade showed the benefits “are de minimis compared with the economic costs of its Brexit proposals”.

Since his landslide election win in December, the British Prime Minister has attempted to frame his personal success as the moment Brits could confidently move on from Brexit and into a bright new future.
