Putin sees Trump as "counterpart" at upcoming talks

"He's not my enemy", Trump said.

Mrs May is yet to comment on Trump's interview with the Sun and so far they have maintained a show of unity - even holding hands as they climbed the steps of Blenheim Palace last night.

As Britain prepares to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019, supporters of Brexit have made much of the so-called special relationship with the United States and the benefits of forging closer trade ties with the world's biggest economy.

The plan has infuriated fervent Brexit supporters, who think it would limit Britain's ability to strike new trade deals around the world.

While the president had no kind words for Theresa May's Brexit plan, he did have them for former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

Despite a series of diplomatic spats between Britain and Trump, the British government is hoping for a quick trade deal with the United States after it leaves the European Union.

Trump is meeting May for a working lunch before meeting the Queen for tea and a likely round at his Scottish golf course. I never said anything bad about her", Trump told The Sun, sticking to his usual critique of the newspaper: "That is fake news.

May has insisted that her Brexit plan will allow Britain to strike its own lucrative trade deals with countries like the USA after her country has left the bloc as planned in March next year.

The US president's brash style and hardline "America First" policies have caused consternation across Britain's political spectrum and society.

"I would have done it much differently".

Though he had no fractures, there was reportedly trauma to his pelvis, hip, and knee, which should heal in three weeks. With Amal's help, Clooney eased his way off the cart and leaned on an assistant as he walked to the jet.

Trump made the comments during a press conference with UK Prime Minister Theresa May. May will be able to remain in power in the wake of a rebellion in her government over Britain's "Brexit" break with the European Union, and the resignation of her foreign secretary Boris Johnson, he had nothing good to say about her chances. "She has got a great and handsome grace about her", Trump said in the interview, which took place in Brussels Wednesday morning but was published Thursday night. "That's why I and tens of thousands of others will be out protesting, to stand up to his poisonous politics". "I have a lot of respect for the prime minister".

"Unfortunately, there was a story that was done which was generally fine but it didn't put in what I said about the Prime Minister and I said a tremendous thing", he said. "I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister".

US President Donald Trump insisted he did not criticise Theresa May in the interview that dominated the build-up to the two leaders' press conference. "They are going to up it at levels they have never thought of before". I used to love London as a city. I haven't been there in a long time.

On Friday, Trump's official events were all set for outside London, away from the major protests, which appeared to be a concession to his famously thin skin.

He added: "You have a mayor who has done a bad job in London".

"Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place".

London endured four terrorists attacks in 2017. "I was very surprised and saddened that he was getting out of government".

He said North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is "more co-ordinated" and there's a "better spirit for NATO" even amid reports that he threated to pull the United States out of the alliance in a dispute over defence spending.

"So I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad", he said.
