There is no chance that a trade agreement between the United States and Britain will pass Congress if Brexit undermines the Good Friday peace accord between Ireland and Northern Ireland, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday.

“Whatever form it takes, Brexit cannot be allowed to imperil the Good Friday Agreement, including the seamless border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland,” Pelosi said in a statement.

“If Brexit undermines the Good Friday accord, there will be no chance of a U.S.-UK trade agreement passing the Congress,” the Democratic head of the U.S. House of Representatives added, first reported by Politico.

U.S. national security adviser John Bolton, visiting London this week, said that Washington would enthusiastically support a no-deal Brexit if that is what the British government decided to do and that a trade deal with the United States would help cushion the blow of Britain’s departure from the EU.
