LONDON (Reuters) - Presumptive U.S.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Britain leaving the
European Union would make no difference to a potential bilateral trade
deal if he became president, according to an interview clip aired by
broadcaster ITV on Sunday.

During a visit to
London last month President Barack Obama told Britons that if
they elected to leave the EU in a June 23 referendum they would
be at "the back of the queue" for a U.S. trade deal.
"I am going to treat everybody fairly but it wouldn't make any
difference to me whether they were in the EU or not," Trump said
in an interview with Piers Morgan, due to be aired in full on
ITV on Monday. "You would certainly not be back of the queue,
that I can tell you."
