It's never a good week for women when Donald Trump is around.No, I'm talking about U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and German leader Angela Merkel, both of whom were humiliated last week by Trump's habit of engaging his mouth before his brain is fully in gear. Here in the U.K., so long as there is the slimmest prospect of a post-Brexit trade deal with the U.S., the government will continue to genuflect at the altar of Trump.Indeed May went out of her way to flatter Trump's giant but fragile ego during his two-day visit to the birthplace of his mother. Yet within hours of his arrival in the U.K., May had been both humiliated and perhaps mortally wounded in political terms by Trump.In the interview, Trump launched a scathing attack on May.However, the principal problem for May is that it has exacerbated rather than mended the splits in her government, and Trump's newspaper interview has emboldened those opposed to the deal.The hard Brexiters within May's government would rather have no deal at all and believe Trump's comments prove it will be better to simply crash out of the EU next year.Either way, May's authority looks dangerously close to collapsing following Trump's intervention.Trump has already demanded Russia should be readmitted to the G-7 .
