US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he thinks he will have a deal with the EU before the US presidential election.

Speaking about his impeachment trial, he said that it was up to the Senate to decide how to handle the trial over his handling of Ukraine and that he would rather have a long trial with witnesses but that there are national security issues.

“I’ll leave that to the Senate,” Trump told a news conference at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, adding that he would watch the proceedings after leaving the summit. “I’d rather go the long route.”
