Queen Elizabeth just made President Donald Trump a very happy man.
While the royal family’s no longer the head of the British government, it’s positions still carry a lot of weight.
So Queen Elizabeth’s approval of the Brexit bill withdrawing the UK from the European Union is likely the final nail in the coffin of those who want to keep Britain tethered to a withering continent.
And that’s precisely what Trump wanted.
He applauded Britain’s bold decision to leave the EU, noting on numerous occasions that Europe had allowed itself to diminish greatly in power due to poor economic and immigration policies.
Brexit gives the UK a fighting chance.
It also signals that a Trump-led America still has a natural ally across “the pond.”
British Prime Minister Theresa May, a close personal ally of Trump, had this to say:
“This will be a defining moment for our whole country as we begin to forge a new relationship with Europe and a new role for ourselves in the world.”
