SALISBURY, United Kingdom  – Britain and the United States have agreed to pursue “an ambitious UK-US free trade agreement” after Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Friday following talks with US President Donald Trump.

“We agreed today that as the UK leaves the European Union, we will pursue an ambitious UK-US free trade agreement,” she told a joint press conference, a day after Trump skewered her Brexit strategy and said it could “kill” prospects for a trade deal with the United States.
