DONALD TRUMP’s national security adviser has sent shockwaves through Brussels and taken a huge swipe at the ‘undemocratic’ nature of the European Union as the US accelerates plans for a free trade deal with the UK.

John Bolton, following his first meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson in London, took aim at the EU for prolonging the Brexit process and not respecting the result of the 2016 referendum. Mr Bolton called the EU’s bluff and insisted its refusal to re-negotiate the failed withdrawal agreement was a ploy to “make the peasants vote again and again”. Mr Bolton said: “The fashion in the European Union is when the people vote the wrong way from the way the elites want to go, is to make the peasants vote again and again until they get it right.

“There was a vote – everyone knew what the issues were. It is hard to imagine that anyone in this country did not know what was at stake.
“The result is the way it was. That’s democracy.”
The damming remarks by the top US official - echoed the beliefs of leading Brexiteers throughout the past three years since the historic vote.

He said: “It is neither democratically legitimised nor democratically controlled. If a Government in the UK does not suit us, we can deselect it.
“If we want to change a law, we can do that in Parliament. That is a democratic right that has often been taken from the EU.
“Not a serious parliament, it is not a democratic forum, it does not represent a people.”

In a coy attempt to win over the overwhelming support of the hardline Brexiteers and to further undermine the EU, Mr Bolton insisted he and the US President were “leavers before there were leavers”.
The Washington official also issued a stern warning to Brussels ahead of the October 31 deadline, by stating the US would “enthusiastically” support a no deal Brexit.
In a damning assessment, Mr Bolton also condemned the EU for its stagnated approach to striking deals and said the UK and US could start finalising a bilateral agreement “very quickly, very straightforwardly”.

The EU has tendencies to exasperate the process after it took seven years for Brussels to complete a Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement with Canada in 2016.
Mr Bolton said the UK would be "first in line" for a trade deal “as soon as possible” with the US.
Mr Bolton said: "The main purpose of the visit really is to convey President Trump's desire to see a successful exit from the European Union for the United Kingdom on October 31, to offer to be of help in any way that we can and to express his hope we can have a fully comprehensive bilateral trade agreement with the United Kingdom as soon as possible."

He added: "To be clear, in the Trump administration, Britain's constantly at the front of the trade queue, or line as we say."
Mr Bolton said the US could seal a trade deal with the UK "in pieces" and concentrate on areas such as manufacturing and the car-making industry.
He said: "You could do it sector by sector, you could do it in a modular fashion in other words. You could carve out some areas where it might be possible to reach a bilateral agreement very quickly, very straightforwardly.
"That would then lock that in and when the other areas that might be more difficult were concluded later, you could combine it in one overall agreement. So the objective is either one document or a series of agreements that would be comprehensive.

"In order to expedite things and enhance the possibility for increasing the trade and investments between the two countries, doing it in a sector-by-sector approach or some other approach that the trade negotiators might agree with, we are open to that."
He added: "The idea of doing it in pieces rather than waiting for the whole thing is not unprecedented.
“I think here we see the importance and urgency of doing as much as we can agree on as rapidly as possible because of the impending October 31 exit date."
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
