Speaking to workers and businesses on the campaign trail in Leeds, the Prime Minister rejected the idea voters may be swayed by the prospect of another referendum.
She said politician had to “respect” the decision to leave – backed by 17.4million people – despite the Liberal Democrats calling for a vote on any potential Brexit deal.
Mrs May said: “I take a very simple view on Brexit – we had a referendum, Parliament collectively said ‘this was a choice of the British people’.
“We gave people a choice and the majority of people voted to leave, voted for Brexit. I think if we’re going to build trust in politicians, the politicians should respect that and deliver on that for people.”

She said voters on both sides of the debate were “coming together” on the issue and showing a desire to “make a success of it”.
“What I also see as I go around actually, is generally speaking, I see that people, whether they voted Leave or Remain are now coming together and saying ‘let’s just get on with it, let’s put it through, let’s do Brexit, let’s make a success of it and let’s move on and take the opportunities that are there in the rest of the world’.
“I don’t think it’s right to say to people there should be a second referendum, people voted and politicians should respect that.”

She warned he could be supported by the pro-Brussels Lib Dems and Nicola Sturgeon's SNP in a "coalition of chaos".
Mrs May said: "Just picture him at the negotiating table with the combined might of the European Commission and 27 other European countries against him.
"The Liberal Democrats, the Scottish Nationalists and others are lining up to prop him up.
"A Jeremy Corbyn-led coalition of chaos is a real possibility. We must not let that happen.”
