(Reuters) - U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has said a disorderly Brexit could harm the United States economy, French news agency AFP said in a tweet on Tuesday.

With less than six months before Britain leaves the European Union, Brexit talks have reached a stalemate over the so-called Irish backstop, a fallback plan to ensure there is no return to a hard border between the British province of Northern Ireland and EU-member Ireland.
