BREXIT will be turbocharged by Donald Trump’s triumph putting Britain at the “front of the queue” for a bumper trade deal, MPs declared last night. Tory backbenchers said Mr Trump’s success – and Republican control of the Congress – made an agreement far more likely than if Hillary Clinton had won. Their optimism comes after the billionaire Brexit fan told The Sun in June that leaving the EU would “make Britain great again”. The billionaire’s rallying cry echoed his campaign slogan: “Make America great again.” Last month he described his own electoral earthquake in the US presidential elections as “Brexit times ten”. He also poured scorn on Barack Obama’s vow to put us “at the back of the queue” in trade talks. The Centre for Economics and Business Research yesterday confirmed: “The UK probably gains from Trump.” Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg said: “Donald Trump’s victory helps us as he’s said he’s in favour of doing a free trade deal with the UK. “He’s much more of a friend to the UK than Obama was. “It’s very important that the UK’s own liberal elite don’t try and re-fight the campaign Hillary Clinton has just lost. They have to accept this result and accept this is the man we will be dealing with. Ukip donor Arron Banks said Donald Trump’s success “puts the European establishment on notice”.
