Donald Trump has weighed on the UK's never-ending Brexit deal to have another chance at the European Union.
& # 39; Too bad the European Union finds the UK kingdom and the Brexit so difficult, & # 39; tweeted Trump Wednesday evening.
& # 39; The EU is also a brutal trade partner with the United States, which will change. Sometimes you have to let people breathe in life before everything comes back to bite you! & # 39;
Trump & # 39; s tweet came hours after the EU gave British Prime Minister Theresa May a further six months to ratify or reconsider its withdrawal contract.

And it comes two days after Trump revealed that he was planning to introduce $ 11 billion in European cheese, wine, and other goods to take revenge for what, according to Washington, are inappropriate subsidies to Airbus.
& # 39; The World Trade Organization finds that European Union subsidies to Airbus have had a negative impact on the United States &, "he tweeted Tuesday.
& # 39; The EU has been using the US for trade for years. It will stop soon! & # 39;
The US Trade Representative's Office has released a provisional list of EU goods with additional tasks that cover everything from planes and aircraft parts to cheese, wine and olives.
It will be made public pending an expected World Trade Organization ruling this summer that would be beneficial to the US in a pending arbitration case.

According to the US, the WTO has repeatedly found that EU subsidies to the European aircraft manufacturer Airbus have caused "adverse consequences" for the US, in particular Boeing Co., the American aircraft manufacturer.
The long-running dispute precedes the Trump administration. The US had filed a complaint with the WTO in 2004, which establishes global trade rules and settles disputes that the EU is granting unfair support to Airbus.
And last May, the WTO ruled that the EU had in fact granted some illegal subsidies to Airbus, which had damaged Boeing in Chicago. In the meantime, the EU has argued that the Boeing has benefited from similar state aid.

Under the terms of the agreement, the UK can leave at any time if the withdrawal agreement reached last November has been ratified by the Westminster Parliament.
If the UK does not participate in elections to the European Parliament on 23 and 26 May, it will automatically leave without an appointment on 1 June.
The second extension of the Brexit process – initially intended to end on March 29 – finally stopped the clock with a no-deal recording on Friday with less than 48 hours to go.
During a press conference in the early hours, Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, did not rule out further extensions after October.
& # 39; This extension is as flexible as I expected, and a bit shorter than I expected, but it is still enough to find the best possible solution, & # 39; he said. & # 39; Please don't waste this time. & # 39;
When she addressed the press shortly before 2 am & # 39; in the morning, May said she still wanted the UK & # 39; would leave the EU as soon as possible.

If a withdrawal agreement could be ratified within the first three weeks of May, the UK could still avoid participation in the European Parliament elections in that month and leave the EU in June, she said.
& # 39; The choices we are facing are grim and the timetable is clear & # 39 ;, said May. & # 39; So we must now continue our efforts to reach consensus on a deal that is in the national interest. & # 39;
& # 39; I do not claim that the coming weeks will be easy or that there is a simple way to break the deadlock in Parliament, & # 39; she continued.
& # 39; But as politicians, we have a duty to find a way to fulfill the democratic decision of the referendum, deliver the Brexit and help our country move forward. Nothing is more urgent or vital. & # 39;
