In 2016, 17 million British citizens voted for Brexit, which would allow Britain to leave the European Union. This month, British Prime Minister Theresa May released a series of proposals that would effectively kill Brexit by retaining many European Union rules and regulations.
Heritageâ€™s Nile Gardiner was the mediaâ€™s go-to expert on the situation, which has caused a political crisis in Britain. Appearing on Fox Business, Fox News,Â CNN, and other outlets, he spoke to Mayâ€™s weak proposals and the importance of an Anglo-American alliance on 8 different television broadcasts.
Gardiner, director of Heritageâ€™s Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, said onÂ Fox BusinessÂ that â€œthe Brexit dream is dying,â€� and that the original vision of Brexit is fading fast because of several compromises made by the prime minister.Â In another Fox interview,Â heÂ said that Britainâ€™s concessions to the EU wereÂ a â€œsurrender to Brussels and extremely unacceptable.â€� Showing great concern for the future of Anglo-American relations,Â Gardiner calledÂ Mayâ€™s entire approach â€œweak and ineffective,â€� and warned viewers that the prime ministerâ€™s stance would â€œundermine the possibility of a strong US/UK special relationship.â€�
It is in Britainâ€™s best interest to align itself closely to the United States.Â On CNN,Â Gardiner said President TrumpÂ can save Brexit and a strong Britain. He also reassured the hosts onÂ Fox News BusinessÂ that the President has â€œa strong belief in sovereignty and self-determination,â€� and will bring a sense of hope and optimism to Great Britain.
