Will a US-UK free trade deal ever happen?

A year ago, President Trump buoyed hopes of a trade deal between the US and the UK, pledging a “powerful” pact that would happen “very, very quickly”.


But as Mr Trump meets with Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday, there is increasing uncertainty that he will deliver.


US trade officials remain consumed by fights with major partners including China, Canada and Mexico.


For US businesses, the UK is also on the back burner.
