After quitting, Boris Johnson says Brexit 'dream is dying'

Theresa May the Prime Minister

Hunt, who had been the health secretary, is considered one of May's most loyal ministers.

May met with Conservative lawmakers in a packed room at Parliament, in a bid to calm the feverish atmosphere in the deeply divided party.

They must submit their letters to the 1922 Committee chairman Sir Graham Brady.

It said May now faces "the spectre of a leadership challenge", but it was "possible that after a period of resignations and political blood-letting, the Conservative Party will fall behind the prime minister".

He said selling the policy would "stick in the throat" and he could not stand by waving "white flags" of surrender, meaning he had to quit.

May's government is trying to satisfy Britons who voted for their country to leave the bloc, but to set an independent course without hobbling businesses, security agencies and other sectors that are closely entwined with the EU.

We will see. We want the Brexit deal to go ahead.

Johnson rocked the Government by becoming the second Cabinet minister to resign in less than 24 hours.

Trump disses 'fake news' CNN in joint press conference with May
She is honest as the day is long. "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is ... unfair". CNN is fake news I don't take questions - I don't take questions from CNN".

Soon after his appointment, Hunt said he would be standing "four square" behind the prime minister "so that we can get through an agreement with the European Union based on what was agreed by the Cabinet last week at Chequers".

Boris Johnson missed out on a seat at the table by resigning as foreign secretary on Monday in protest at Mrs May's Brexit policy, though Mr Trump has said he might try to speak to him during his visit.

"EU offer = ambitious FTA + effective cooperation on wide range of issues, including a strong security partnership", he added, referring to a free trade agreement which the European Union has proposed negotiating with London. The issue of the Irish border remains a stumbling block. He pointed out that while some Brexiteers want to leave the customs union and single market, others advocating for a so-called "soft Brexit" want to stay. "We need the Brexit people voted for".

Mr Davis, who has been Brexit Secretary since Mrs May became prime minister in 2016, said he had made compromises since taking on the role, but this was "one compromise too far".

May has hung on to power longer than many expected after she lost her majority in a June 2017 snap election that she had called in hopes of strengthening her hand in Brexit talks.

Negotiations may be even more uncertain after the resignations of two key United Kingdom government leaders.

According to an SMS text survey of 1,502 Sky customers on 9 July 2018, 64 percent of Britons do not trust the Prime Minister to run Brexit negotiations - up 31 percentage points from a similar sample taken in March 2017. May appointed staunchly pro-Brexit lawmaker Dominic Raab as the country's new Brexit secretary.Many pro-Brexit lawmakers were furious at what they saw as a sell-out of the clean Brexit they desire.

Ms. May has briefed leaders including EU President Donald Tusk and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on her plan and reported a positive response, although they are awaiting the details.
