Joe Biden is ‘wrong’ about Northern Ireland protocol, says George Eustice.

George Eustice has said the US President Joe Biden is “wrong” to have concerns about Britain’s row with the EU over the Northern Ireland protocol.

In a discussion about the Brexit trade deal, the Environment Secretary suggested Joe Biden doesn’t “fully appreciate” the details of the row.

George Eustice told Sky News: "We think he is wrong because the truth is that unless we have a sustainable solution that enables trade to continue between GB and Northern Ireland then we are going to have issues, and that itself would become a challenge to the Belfast Agreement.”

He added: “We will obviously explain to the United States effectively it is tantamount to saying that potatoes grown in one part of the United States can’t be sold in another part of the United States.

“When you explain some of those provisions in detail, it is understood by the US government that that clearly does not make any sense and therefore should be revisited.”

He said the UK Government is working to help explain the complexities of the matter to the US.
