Trump told reporters Friday at a joint press conference with May that he had given the British leader a suggestion that she found too “brutal.”
Asked on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show on Sunday what that suggestion was, May said: “He told me I should sue the EU. Not go into negotiation, sue them.”
She added: “What the president also said at that press conference was ‘Don’t walk away. Don’t walk away from the negotiations. Then you’re stuck.’”
