White House defends United Kingdom comments: Trump ‘likes and respects’ Theresa May

Donald Trump and Melania Trump arrive in London on Thursday

Trump attended a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace with May on Thursday evening, where the TV network ITV reports May planned to pitch the president on a free-trade agreement between the United Kingdom and the USA after Brexit.

U.S. President Donald Trump checks time prior to a dinner at the Art and History Museum at the Parc du Cinquantenaire during the NATO Summit in Brussels, Belgium July 11, 2018.

Nearly 300 people gathered in Cardiff city centre with other protests being held in Swansea and outside the Senedd in Cardiff Bay. "So I think that symbolizes how he considers the importance of her leadership in this country right now".

Donald Trump is in Britain - and a whole lot of British people aren't too happy about it. Organisers of anti-Trump rallies say they are not expecting any trouble at all.

Ahead of his visit, Trump said Britain was now "in somewhat turmoil" as Prime Minister May grappled with a political crisis after two top ministers quit over her plans for trade ties with the European Union after Britain leaves the bloc next March.

Trump next heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with the queen.

May's Brexit plans "will definitely affect trade with the United States, unfortunately in a negative way", Trump was quoted as saying in an interview with Britain's Sun newspaper.

He also said he had "always liked" Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary on Monday, while he joked that his meeting with Russian leader Mr Putin in Helsinki next week "may be the easiest" part of his European trip.

The poll conducted this week said 63 percent found Trump racist, and 74 percent said he was sexist.

What do you think of Trump's comments?

Trump went after London Mayor Sadiq Khan, claiming he "has done a awful job on terror".

Mr Trump with meet with UK Prime Minister Theresa May and the Queen.

"The spirit of friendship and cooperation between our countries, our leaders and our people, that most special of relationships, has a long and proud history".

Trump said May "didn't listen" to his views on how she should negotiate the UK's exit from the European Union, but said that was "fine".

Later Thursday Trump and his wife were scheduled to be VIP guests at a dinner hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May at Blenheim Palace, the stately home outside London which was the birthplace of Britain's World War II prime minister Winston Churchill. Trump is technically on a lower-level working visit this week.

He will leave Britain on Sunday, after a trip to Scotland where he owns two golf courses.
