Anti-Brexit Joe Biden shuts doors for UK – US trade deal until 2025

According to sources, there is little chance of a trade agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States being reached until 2025.

Such a deal was claimed to be in the works between UK authorities and the Trump administration, only to be abandoned when Joe Biden becomes office in 2021.

Since then, the planned landing date for such a trade deal has been repeatedly pushed back, with officials initially stating that there would be no deal before 2022, and then after 2024.

Now, according to a report by The Telegraph, sources within the British government are saying that they do not expect any such negotiations to take place before the next presidential term in early 2025.

Such a timetable appears to be based on the possibility that Biden will have been pushed out of office by that point, with a commander-in-chief more favourable to the UK in power at that time.

“The US can remain on the back-burner until we have a more sympathetic US President,” David Jones MP, deputy chairman of the Pro-Brexit European Research Group, said of the extended timetable for a trade deal.

“In the meantime, we can focus on more enthusiastic trading partners, who are accounting for an increasing share of the global economy,” he added.
