"Secondly making sure there is no hard border and trying to minimise any negative impact on trade between Ireland and Great Britain".

Earlier on Monday, the prime minister's office also announced the appointment of Dominic Raab as Brexit secretary, replacing Davis.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mrs May should make way for a Labour administration if her Government can not get its act together quickly.

The length of a leadership contest is at the discretion of the 1922 Committee, but the customary period is at least 12 weeks, during which May would have to negotiate with Barnier and the EU.

The two sides are negotiating outstanding issues related to its departure as well as the outline of their future relationship once a proposed transition period comes to an end, on 31 December 2020.

In response to those comments, May's spokesman said that she "looks forward to showing Donald Trump the UK and talking to Donald Trump about the UK and is confident that he will leave the UK with a positive view".

"Brexit will be softened, which is to say undermined: turned from a passionate cry for democratic independence into a bureaucratic exercise of pursuing slow-motion semi-divergence from the European Union while actually kind of staying in", O'Neill wrote.

Why is this document so important?

The plan also seeks to keep Britain in major EU agencies, including the European Aviation Safety Agency, the European Medicines Agency and the police agency Europol.

And others would require the United Kingdom to have a separate Value-Added Tax regime from the EU and force the prime minister to table primary legislation if she wishes to keep Britain in the customs union.

Boris Johnson warned Monday as he quit as foreign secretary that the Brexit "dream is dying" and Britain is "headed for the status of colony" with its plan to stay close to the EU.

Trump arrives in United Kingdom to pomp and protest
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has come under fire for his approval of a blimp featuring US President Donald Trump dressed as a baby. Widespread protests opposing President Trump's stay begin Thursday evening and continue through Friday night.

And he told people who are "criticising or carping" about the plan that they needed to come up with credible alternatives of their own.

Merkel welcomed the fact that Britain had formulated a position to take into stalled negotiations with the EU.

But Parliament would oversee the UK's trade policy and have the ability to "choose" to diverge from the European Union rules. "The White Paper sets out in detail how it would work", he is expected to say, according to his Brexit department.

Liam Fox said the agreement, which sparked the resignations of Boris Johnson and David Davis, was created to be a "credible offer" to Brussels to allow negotiations to make progress.

Mr Rees-Mogg, who leads the influential European Research Group of leave-supporting MPs, said the PM's red lines were "rubbed out" at Chequers where attendees had been "steam-rollered" into supporting the PM's policies.

The MP says while Mr Johnson and Mr Davis quit, other Brexit champions - such as Michael Gove and Andrea Leadsom - are still in the Cabinet.

The resignation of such high-profile figures puts Prime Minister May in a vulnerable position, with pro-Brexit facets considering a no-confidence vote that could knock her out of power.

The FT said Britain wanted to be the country outside the bloc with the closest relationship in financial services to what will then be the EU's 27 member countries.

"What we were asked to do was have no free movement, no EU jurisdiction, no continued payments to the EU, no customs union and no single market", International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said on Wednesday.

Robert Basedow, an global trade expert and assistant professor at the London School of Economics, said that mutual trade in services is already pretty welcoming to American companies.
