In case you don't know shit, the United Kindom is supposed to leave the European Union. Or was, about two weeks ago. It got delayed, and now the Prime Minister Theresa May wants more time and the European Union isn't exactly happy about the mess that Brexit has become, before the country actually even gets the fuck out. 

Honestly, I feel bad for May. She became the Prime Minister after the British people voted for Brexit in 2016, so technically, the whole mess became when she was just the Home Minister in the same party as David Cameron. After Cameron resigned, May became the Prime Minister, and now people either hate her or just have mixed feelings. I have to admire her drive and persistence, as she's in a shitty situation where her own government doesn't approve of her Brexit deal, and where she still has to try to befriend the EU. 

What caught my eye this morning, was a funny Tweet by Trump, as he decided to comment on Brexit. He said that the EU should cut some slack on the UK and "let people breathe". I know Trump isn't a fan of the EU, but he seems to have the idea wrong. The European Union has been rather patient with the UK, considering they are the ones leaving the Union. The country was given two years to come up with a deal. When they did, all the other countries did accept it, although it wasn't a given, and did take some time.

The problem right now, is the British government, as May is having trouble getting them to accept the deal. There have been a couple of votes already, and May's lost them. If you ask me, I doubt they will ever accept the deal, so May is now buying time to avoid the no-deal situation, also known as hard Brexit. She got two weeks, now she wants more, and the EU isn't all that happy about it.

Trump doesn't seem to know that the UK leaving the European Union isn't some bullshit romantic sobstory, where the people need space to breathe and take some time to themselves. It's a big deal, as it will affect the whole world's economy and politics. The EU isn't the one who has to give the UK some space anyway, as they have already accpeted the deal. If the British government won't buy May's deal, that's on the UK's end. UK is the one who tries to postpone the leaving date, and the EU has the right to get mad about that. It's a big political factor, and the Union has other things to worry about than Brexit. Sure, it's huge and all, but the EU has other things to take care of this year than the Brits wanting to buy time a few weeks at a time, when they had over two years.
