BREXITEERS are still hopeful for a hard Brexit as Donald Trump could show support for a clean break from the "German-run EU" when he visits Britain this week, according to sources.
Close allies of Donald Trump claim the President holds positive thoughts towards a hard Brexit deal and he may break his silence on the matter if the opportunity arises.
A close friend of the New York billionaire said: “Trump supported Brexit and liked the idea of Britain being independent and not owned by the EU.
“He has a general distaste for the EU. He thinks Germany secretly controls it.”
Despite this, it was revealed the UK could be heading towards a "soft-Brexit".
Mrs May’s leadership skills are currently under increasing pressure from hardline Brexiteers.
As part of the proposed deal, Britain would have to match EU rules for goods and allowing some movement for EU workers.
The Prime Minister’s plan has already cost her two high profile Cabinet members after David Davis and Boris Johnson resigned earlier this week.
