Indications coming out of Washington appear to show that the newly elected Republican leader is looking to secure a new and improved relationship with Britain, putting it at the front of the queue over any trade deals.

This looks to be at the expense of any such deal with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the unofficial power behind the European Union throne.

Signals coming out of Germany are that officials are frustrated at being left on the sideline by Mr Trump and they are unable to even open lines of communication with the new White House administration.

One advisor to Mrs Merkel said: “None of us here believe that anymore.

“The Americans, and the world, will get the Trump they elected.”

Sigmar Gabriel, the German Vice Chancellor, commented after the US inauguration that the country might now have to look to Asia in terms of a new economic strategy should the US impose its threatened protectionist policies.
