After Blasting UK Over Brexit, Donald Trump Says Relationship Very Strong

Donald Trump visit to UK

US first lady Melania Trump, President Trump, British Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip May watch a live military performance ahead of a dinner in Oxfordshire, U.K., on Thursday.

"I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you'd like".

While Trump's trip was not a full state visit, he has been given red carpet treatment and is scheduled to have tea later with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, where her grandson Prince Harry married US actress Meghan Markle in May.

Trump's remarks to the Sun were the most biting any USA president has ever made on visit to Britain.

The newspaper interview dropped on the same night May honored him at a black-tie dinner at Winston Churchill's ancestral home.

-British trade deal after she failed to take his advice on how to negotiate.

"Whatever you do is OK with us, just make sure we can trade together, that's all that matters".

Trump directly criticised May's plans to leave the European Union in an interview with the Sun newspaper, saying it had probably killed off hope of a U.S.

His highly-controversial remarks came at the end of a day in which he had already waded deeply into the Brexit row over Theresa May's white paper ahead of his first official visit to Britain as President.

He also told the tabloid that he'd shared advice with May during Britain's negotiations with the European Union and she ignored it. More than 60,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday when protesters intend to fly a large balloon over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby.

The president started the day by reviewing a private military exercise alongside May at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.


After a tumultuous week for May, when her Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned in protest at the Brexit plan, Trump heaped praise on Johnson, saying he "would be a great prime minister".

From there he will be helicoptered to Windsor Castle to meet the Queen. It's likely that this won't be the last we hear from Trump on his trip. "I believe after speaking with the prime minister's people and trade experts a deal will be possible". "I think he is a great representative for your country". "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", Trump said, noting that negotiations had gone on "too long". He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me'.

After a tumultuous couple years for the "special relationship" between the US and her closet ally, tested repeatedly by disagreements, the frustration at the street level with Mr. Trump's policies, style and manner manifested Thursday in some demonstrations.

Trump conflated immigration and terrorism in the interview, and he said that Khan, London's mayor, had done a "terrible job".

Trump also blamed recent terrorist attacks there on Khan, who is Muslim. The president claimed Europe is "losing its culture" because of immigration from the Middle East and Africa.

Trump added that he wished the Sun newspaper put the "tremendous things" he said about May in its headline, but acknowledged, "That's one of those things".

At the time, Khan also said "Trump is not welcome here" in London.

"Paris, Nice, Brussels, Berlin. This is not the way you behave", Thornberry told broadcaster ITV. I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister.

The president arrived in the United Kingdom on Thursday but is largely circumventing the capital and the massive protests against him.

Outside the mansion, northwest of London, a couple of thousand booing demonstrators lined the road. Police worked overtime, their days off canceled.

Trump issued scathing criticism of May's Brexit strategy.
