Re: Brexit Part IX: Final rush to No Deal

Yes sadly or in my eyes Brexit is connected to a world that does not exist anymore. Trump has destroyed both WTO and NATO. WTO does not work without USA and EU actively make it work. Biden would still have a chance to revive both NATO and WTO, but if Trump should remain both will effectively be his...

So whom will USA call after the next election in February 2021 when it calls Europe? Will it be London or Brussels? I think this is a very important question to ask.

As before, it will be Berlin, Paris and then maybe Brussels (of course not under Trump).

London will just be told what to do.
