Guest: Eric Jensen, JD, Professor of International Law, J. Reuben Clark Law School, Brigham Young University In eight months, Britain is supposed to leave the European Union, but negotiations over the exit have hit more trouble. Two of the key figures shaping Brexit suddenly resigned over the weekend, leaving British Prime Minister Theresa May in trouble. She’s been hoping for what she calls a “soft exit” from the European Union, but the hard-core Brexiters in her government are not on board. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said in his resignation letter that the Brexit “dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt.” President Trump is in Brussels for a NATO summit with European countries and then he’ll make his first official visit to Britain before going on to Helsinki for a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
