Trade Between the United States and UK Set to Boom Post-Brexit

Published

on

Should Brexit succeed, the United States is ready to strengthen trade relationships with the United Kingdom.

According to a new document from U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer’s department, the U.S. is looking forward to “fair, balanced, and reciprocal trade with the UK” once Brexit is finalized.

This document was released two weeks after President Trump said that he was anticipating “substantially increased” trade between the UK and the U.S. once the two countries sign off on a new trade deal.

This echoes U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom “Woody” Johnson’s repeated calls to get the ball rolling on an Anglo-American trade deal.

Right now, the UK is not able to enter trade deals because of its EU membership. The British people resoundingly voted to leave the EU in the 2016 Brexit referendum, but London elites have done everything they can to try to delay this process.

Given the shared culture, language, and legal system, re-forging trade relations with the UK should be a no-brainer for the U.S. Both countries would stand to benefit enormously from such a trade arrangement as they are some of the largest and most competitive economies in the world. Despite what the Brexit naysayers claim about trade under a Brexit world, the UK has plenty of new opportunities to tap into when it’s no longer under the EU’s thumb.

All in all, the UK should respect the will of its voters by following through with Brexit. The cases to be made for Brexit are strong, ranging from the economics down to social concerns aboutthe EU’s mass migration policies.

As a sovereign nation, the UK has the right to pursue the trade policy it sees fit without Brussels having to look over its shoulder and tell it what to do.

If Brexit finalizes as expected, the U.S. can score a big win by tightening its commercial relations with the U.K.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016

Coulter tells it like it is.

Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.

Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.

Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is  necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.

As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.

Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.

She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.

also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”

She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.

The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.

Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
