LONDON, June 4 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said Britain's public health service should be on the table in talks about a trade deal between the two countries after Brexit, prompting Prime Minister Theresa May to say some areas of the economy might be off limits.
"I think everything with a trade deal is on the table," Trump said when asked if U.S. companies should be able to access Britain's National Health Service after a deal.
"So NHS or anything else, or a lot more than that. But everything will be on the table, absolutely."
May, speaking at the same news conference during Trump's visit to London, quickly followed up: "But the point about making trade deals of course is that both sides negotiate and come to an agreement about what should or should not be in that trade deal for the future."
The NHS is a cherished institution for many people in Britain and the opposition Labour Party has seized on speculation that it might be opened up to the private sector as part of its criticism about a possible U.S.-UK trade deal.
