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.
Heritage’s Nile Gardiner was the media’s go-to expert on the situation, which has caused a political crisis in Britain. Appearing on Fox Business, Fox News, CNN, and other outlets, he spoke to May’s weak proposals and the importance of an Anglo-American alliance on 8 different television broadcasts.
Gardiner, director of Heritage’s Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, said on Fox Business that “the Brexit dream is dying,” and that the original vision of Brexit is fading fast because of several compromises made by the prime minister. In another Fox interview, he said that Britain’s concessions to the EU were a “surrender to Brussels and extremely unacceptable.” Showing great concern for the future of Anglo-American relations, Gardiner called May’s entire approach “weak and ineffective,” and warned viewers that the prime minister’s stance would “undermine the possibility of a strong US/UK special relationship.”
It is in Britain’s best interest to align itself closely to the United States. On CNN, Gardiner said President Trump can save Brexit and a strong Britain. He also reassured the hosts on Fox News Business that the President has “a strong belief in sovereignty and self-determination,” and will bring a sense of hope and optimism to Great Britain.
