A day after Prime Minister Theresa May signed the letter beginning the process known as "Brexit," the White House hailed the decision of British voters last year to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union.

"We respect the will of the British electorate and Her Majesty's government in taking steps of departing the European Union," Press Secretary Sean Spicer told Newsmax, "Whatever future the UK-EU relationship looks like, we want the UK to remain a strong leader in Europe, for both the EU and Europe to remain strong leaders globally."

Spicer also fired back at a warning from Jean Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, for Mr, Trump to stop encouraging countries to copy Brexit because "if the European Union collapses, you will have a new war in the Balkans."

Juncker also told the Financial Times last Friday that Trump "does not understand anything about Europe."

When Newsmax read Juncker's comments to Spicer Wednesday, the President’s top spokesman replied: "I think the President is very well steeped in world affairs, especially Europe, NATO, all of the issues. He was a leader in the effort to call Brexit, as you know."
