In world news now and Brexit news today, the Theresa May resignation (Brexit related) is set to happen today June 7. We recently saw the Theresa May resignation speech signaling to the UK and the world that the conservative leader would be stepping down.
Theresa May resigned from office on a bitter note ,her tenure dominated by what was largely regarded as failure after failure in the drama of one of the most divisive, confusing, and heavily-covered news events of the past couple years: the country’s impending exit from the European Union.
In the years since the Brexit vote, May has negotiated with parliament and the EU in an effort to arrange a deal that both sides would agree on. Resultantly, every deal she’s attempted to pass has failed.
In March 2019, she even offered to resign if the latest version of her deal passed. It didn’t.
It’s also worth noting that not long after the Brexit vote, she became the first world leader to meet with U.S. President Trump after his inauguration, and despite hopes of a U.S. – UK trade deal that would offset the losses of leaving the EU – she didn’t really establish a rapport with Trump.
