In the article, published just hours before the two leaders held talks, Mr Trump chided the "very unfortunate" results of the Prime Minister's proposals for Brexit and her negotiating tactics as Britain prepares to leave the European Union in March next year.

"She's a very smart, very tough, very capable person and I would much rather have her as my friend than my enemy, that I can tell you". She wanted to go a different route ...

Another wrote: "I think I can hear Dusty singing "The Look of Love".

Addressing the row at a joint news conference with Mrs May on Friday, Mr Trump claimed he "didn't criticise" Mrs May and has a "lot of respect" for her.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London", Trump said. "I was very saddened to see he was leaving government, and I hope he goes back in at some point". "He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person. I read reports where that won't be possible but I believe that after speaking with the Prime Minister's people and representatives and trade experts it will absolutely be possible".

On Friday, Trump said that at a gala dinner at Blenheim Palace the night before he and May spoke for nearly 90 minutes and had "probably never developed a better relationship".

Mr. Trump, an ardent Brexit supporter, arrived in London on Thursday after a tumult of criticism levelled at Prime Minister Theresa May for her handling of Brexit.

Shadow equalities secretary Dawn Butler said: "Donald Trump's comments about Sadiq Khan are as offensive as they are wrong". Some politicians even called on the Scottish government to bar Trump from landing at Glasgow Prestwick Airport, saying the move would be a fitting protest of the president's travel ban, which targets several Muslim-majority countries, The Telegraph reported.

Robert Keen, general director of the British International Freight Association (BIFA) representing United Kingdom -based forwarders, said the proposals in which the United Kingdom would apply European Union tariffs to European Union goods passing through the United Kingdom, "look complex and untested".

Trump then appeared to contradict himself by saying "fortunately we tend to record stories now, so we have it for your enjoyment", adding "it's called fake news", although it isn't clear how an audio recording of his interview could be fake news.
