Donald Trump becoming the new president of the United States of America is “not necessarily bad news” for the UK, according to Romford’s MP Andrew Rosindell.
Mr Rosindell hopes that the elected Mr Trump will be a lot more pro-Britain than his predecessor Barack Obama and will be open to a free trade agreement with the UK in the wake of the Brexit vote.
The Conservative MP believes the UK government should now do all they can to work with USA’s 45th president.
“USA is the greatest democracy on the planet and the American people have spoken,” Mr Rosindell said.
“Regardless of peoples’ views or opinions of him, we now have a new president and the UK has got to work with him.

“After the Brexit vote, Mr Obama told us we should expect to be at the back of the queue when it came to trade deals but Mr Trump has already showed signs that he is willing to work with Britain and support us moving forward.”
Mr Rosindell also sees similarities between the US election and Brexit vote with people keen to “rebel against the establishment”.

He said: “There is definitely a correlation between Brexit and the US election result.
“Voters have grown tired of some politicians who have too much power and don’t listen to the general public.
“I totally understand why people have done this with voters especially among the working class feeling out of the picture and not part of the liberal elite.”
