after a media report noted that U.S. President Trump believes that UK PM
"Theresa May ignored his advice by opting for a soft Brexit strategy." Trump
reportedly went on to warn UK PM May that "any attempts to maintain close ties

- BOE's Cunliffe is due up today, with Trump's visit to the UK continuing. Next

& retail sales, which could cement/draw questions over a BoE rate hike at its
heavily awaited August MonPol meeting.
