Trump said: 'I think we have to take a look seriously whether or not the United Kingdom is allowed to trade.

Former Labour Business minister and ex-shadow Europe minister Pat McFadden said: "This report shows that the reality of this deal will leave Britain tens of billions of pounds poorer than if we stuck with the deal we've got - inside the EU".

Brexiteers want negotiators to return to Brussels to amend the deal, but European leaders have said that they have little room to improve it and that there is nothing more to talk about.

"The EU have maintained throughout this process that they wanted to link overall access to markets to access to fisheries. That would be a very big negative for the deal".

If it concludes Britain can unilaterally reverse Brexit, it could give British lawmakers (MPs) a third viable option as an alternative to May's deal or what ministers describe as a chaotic no deal scenario - staying in the bloc after another referendum.

With scores of MPs declaring their intention to vote the deal down, the Brexit Secretary was asked on BBC Radio 4's Today programme how the Government will get it through Parliament.

Mrs May told MPs the Government had ensured that Gibraltar was covered by the Withdrawal Agreement and would negotiate a future relationship "for the whole United Kingdom family, including Gibraltar".

"We can not go on any more with this hopeless can't-do spirit; this reflexive negativity and defeatism that so woefully underestimates the courage and creativity of the British people", he lamented.

With all opposition parties and up to 80 Conservative MPs pledged to oppose May's deal when it comes to the House of Commons, Remainer ministers in her Cabinet are pushing for the prime minister to seek an alternative deal that would leave Britain with a closer relationship with the European Union after Brexit.

Mrs May added: "This deal avoids a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland".

The European Parliament and British Parliament still have to approve the current agreement.

"It will be a deal that is in our national interest - one that works for our whole country and all of our people, whether you voted "Leave" or 'Remain, '" she said.

This position was backed by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

The draft deal also opened the door to a possible extension of the transition period and stated that no side could unilaterally pull out.

"They failed in the Withdrawal Agreement, and they failed again in the Political Declaration". Labour, the Liberal Democrats, the SNP, and the DUP have all vowed to sink May's deal, as have many Conservatives.

LONDON - Theresa May faces a fresh rebellion from her Cabinet that could yet force her to rip up the deal she has just signed with European Union leaders.

Savings on the U.K.'s contributions to the European Union budget would make up only a fraction of the potential damage to the economy, according to the joint paper by the Centre for Economic Performance and academic think tank The UK in a Changing Europe.

She will tell MPs "with absolute certainty" that "there is not a better deal available", and challenge them to back her plan or risk crashing out without an agreement.
