British Prime Minister Theresa May met European Union chief executive Jean-Claude Juncker before dawn in Brussels on Friday after a night flight from London, apparently having clinched a deal to open talks on post-Brexit trade.May would then meet European Council President Donald Tusk around 8 a.m. and hold a further news conference around 8:30 a.m. with the man who will chair a crunch summit next Friday where May hopes EU leaders will grant her trade negotiations.Since then, May has been scrambling to clinch a deal on the new UK-EU land border in Ireland that is acceptable to the EU, Dublin, her own lawmakers and Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which keeps her government in power.The EU says May has an effective deadline of Sunday night if she wants to seal a deal and hope to have agreement on trade talks in time for the EU summit on Dec. 15 .
