Ahead of the US election next week, President Trump has been lagging behind Democrat candidate Joe Biden in the polls. More than 50 million Americans have already cast their votes.
But now, Lord Adonis has claimed if Mr Trump does not win the upcoming election, it will mark the end of Brexit.
The Labour peer - who has been a vocal opponent of Brexit - tweeted: “The most important think that will happen in British politics this year is next Tuesday’s American election.
“The end of Trump is the beginning of the end of Johnson & Cummings & Brexit.”
However Lord Adonis has been heavily criticised for his comment with many pointing out Britain has already left the European Union.
