US President Donald Trump says the NHS is not and will not form any part of a UK-US trade deal.
Asked if the NHS should be on the table in trade talks, Mr Trump said: “No, not at all, I have nothing to do with it. Never even thought about it, honestly.”
Mr Trump added: “I don’t even know where that rumour started. We have absolutely nothing to do with it and we wouldn’t want to if you handed it to us on a silver platter, we want nothing to do with it.”
So – there you have it.
