Trump envoy's cheap Brexit promises

Press quote (Politico)

“What Bolton is proposing is not realistic," said Sam Lowe from the Centre for European Reform. "Why would Congress sign off on anything that doesn’t have agriculture included?”

"All Congress cares about is agriculture and dismantling the EU’s regulatory approach to food and chemicals,” Lowe argued. Any deal that falls short of that would not be ratified, regardless of Bolton's assurances.“Remember that Bolton is not a trade expert. All he cares about is getting leverage to get the UK to follow the U.S. on Huawei, Iran and China.”
