US President Donald Trump on Thursday indicated that he is supporting the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union by promising a major trade deal with the country as British lawmakers are scheduled to vote on extending the Brexit deadline
US Senator Chris Murphy responded to Trump's comment by saying that the president is "cheering" the breakup of the EU.
Murphy, who represents the US state of Connecticut, said in a statement posted to Twitter that the US Congress should not approve any trade deal with Britain unless the Brexit agreement protects the Irish peace process and Washington completes a trade agreement with the EU first.
