Brussels has a policy of pushing its new trade deal partners to allow countries such as Turkey, with whom the bloc is in a customs union, to enjoy similar beneficial terms as its member states.
Mrs Mays Vassal State Fake-Brexit has torpedoed the possibility of a trade deal with the USA. For the sake of our nation, MPs must vote it down on 12th December.
After enduring criticism of the Brexit withdrawal agreement in the Commons on Monday, the prime minister began the next day rejecting US President Donald Trump's suggestions that the deal could threaten future US-UK trade deals.
A TRADE DEAL WITH THE US IS OFF! Theresa Mays EU deal is great for the big banks and the big corporations that dont want a brexit that 17.4 million people voted for, chipped in Trumps pal Nigel Farage. Both of them spot on as usual. 👍

Mays Brexit deal sounds like a great deal for the EU, says Trump So he is siding with May’s enemies over her deal. Holding hands with him did not help her after all #torybrexitshambles
There is nothing in the withdrawal agreement or the political declaration that is likely to heavily impact on that baseline of trade, although US direct investment into the City of London will decline as the EU “passports” allowing UK-based bankers and traders to offer services across member states are taken away.
Many Tories have also said publicly they are opposed to Mrs May's Brexit deal with the EU.
Prime Minister Theresa May made a blunt appeal to skeptical lawmakers on Monday to back her divorce deal with the European Union: It isn't perfect, but it's all there is, and the alternative is a leap into the unknown.
It would theoretically be possible for Fox to start negotiations with Washington about a future trade deal, but the UK’s customs relationship with Brussels will not be clear until very late in the transition period, making it almost impossible for any serious groundwork to be done.

In the highly likely scenario that a EU-UK trade deal is not close to ratification by July 2020, the EU and UK would jointly decide at this “rendezvous” point whether to extend the transition period for up to two years.
In other developments: Other political parties have demanded to be involved in any televised Brexit debate, after Theresa May challenged Jeremy Corbyn to a head-to-head encounter Research published by the London School of Economics, King's College and the Institute for Fiscal Studies suggests the PM's Brexit deal could leave the economy as much as 5.5% smaller in 10 years time than it would be if the UK stayed in the EU Judges at the European Court of Justice have concluded a four-hour hearing on whether the UK can call off the process of leaving the EU without permission from member states, with a verdict due at a later date Labour has called for the government's full legal advice on the Brexit deal to be published this week.
