Clinton: I’m Not President, So U.S. Shouldn’t Have a Trade Deal with the UK

Hillary Clinton took her sour grapes overseas, saying in an interview from London that the UK shouldn't have a bilateral trade deal with the U.S. under Trump.

Hillary Clinton hasn’t been shy about blaming her election loss on everything from Russia to James Comey, but now she’s taking her grievances overseas.

According to Reuters, Clinton said that, because Trump’s president and she’s not, the UK should be leery about pursuing a bilateral trade deal with the U.S.

Asked about the prospects of a British-U.S. deal, Clinton told the BBC: “You’re making a trade deal with somebody who says he doesn’t believe in trade, so I‘m not quite sure how that’s going to play out over the next few years.”

British Prime Minister Theresa May visited Trump in January to talk trade. The countries share $200 billion of trade each year.

Clinton also mused that the UK only voted to ‘Brexit’ from the European Union because of “fabricated, false information.”

“Looking at the Brexit vote now it was a precursor to some extent to what happened to us in the United States… The amount of fabricated, false information that your voters were given by the ‘Leave’ campaign,” she said.

Unsatisfied with the American response to her election complaints, it appears Clinton is ready to take her tour overseas.
