He backtracked from that position very quickly afterwards:

Not that anything he does or says is any guarantee of the future position of the US. There's shedloads of money to be made from fucking the NHS up so they'll almost certainly try; it largely then depends on whether those in power in the UK let them. In a sane world they'd get told to GTFF but Torys are almost certainly gonna Tory. I predict they'll crack it open just far enough to let the fuckers slither inside while appearing to have mostly pushed back. Ten year from now they'll have gradually hollowed the entire thing out, it'll be NHS in name only and everyone's quality of life will take a massive kick in the balls.

I have a theory about what may have happened here.

"At a press conference in London on Tuesday, Mr Trump was asked whether he believed the NHS should be part of a trade deal between the UK and US after Brexit.".

We're all assuming that he knew what the NHS was at that point, but there's a better than even chance that he didn't, and just shot his mouth off in his usual way.

That theory could be tested quite easily by a journalist.

"Sure OMD and ELO should be on the table, I don't see why they wouldn't be..."

That's certainly possible. Or he was genuinely being bullish about it without having the slightest idea of the uproar it would cause because, again, ignorance.

Could be ignorance, but also might be because he genuinely doesn't give a fuck about this little island that looks suddenly vulnerable and there is PROFIT to be made by trampling all over little people.

I'm not sure how much of the uproar from all the other things (as hateful as these things seem to us) has really impacted on him. It's hard not to feel incredibly disaffected by all of this.

Fuck: MPs reject Labour plan for no-deal vote https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-48613921

Rory Stewart’s a devious git.

But he voted against the motion to try to prevent no-deal today. Because if that got through, he’d lose his USP as a leadership candidate?

Because no tory member will be seen dead voting for a leadership candidate who’s dared to vote on a motion proposed by Corbyn.

Indeed. I keep wishing people would do the right thing, instead of what’s best for their parliamentary career or party. I am a naive fool, I know.
