Kerry says EU-US trade deal could ease Brexit damage

US Secretary of State John Kerry (L) meets with EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini in Brussels on July 18, 2016US Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that a massive EU-US trade deal could soften any damage caused by Britain’s exit from the European Union following last month’s referendum. The treaty, bogged down in negotiations, has “a very significant ability to act as a counter” to the negative effects of Britain’s eventual divorce from the EU, Kerry told a press conference in Brussels. “It’s our job to make sure that we adequately inform people about the facts of how TTIP will actually work for the people of Europe,” Kerry said.
