1st November, DOG. The US President cannot make trade deals on his own, approval lies within the province of the Congress (a Congress with a powerful Irish-American constituency).

As for troops and border duties, the PSNI has stated numerous times that No Deal Brexit presents terrible risks for police officers. Have you now become a Tyrone Jamie Bryson muttering about PSNIRA?

The Senate will back Congress on this...trust me.

Did I not see the US president tweet yesterday that Boris is a great leader and he loves the UK,
Sounds like a man who wants a trade deal with the UK.
Get the troops of yours trained for border duties.
Rock on 1st October.
It's the 1st of November you eejit.
And where were you when Nancy Pelosi visited your near neighbours in Derry back in April? During her Irish visit she had a bit of bad news for you and Trump on a trade deal.
Trump can do agree all the trade deals he wants. Congress has the final say, and the Democrats control the HoR. The Democrats say they won't approve a UK trade deal if there is a hard border in Ireland, and they will also win support from GOP Irish Americans in the Senate.

Great news for Belfast.
Is it? Hard not to believe it is a political stroke just when an embattled UK PM needs a support. Arlene and Dodd were in Downing Street discussing Brexit. What was promised and agreed?
