Hundreds of thousands protest US President Donald Trump's visit

Hundreds of thousands protest US President Donald Trump's visit

Mr Trump has sparked a backlash from UK politicians after telling The Sun the PM's Brexit plan would "probably kill" a UK-US trade deal.

Trump and May held a joint press conference after meeting at the prime minister's country home in Chequers on Friday.

First Lady Melania Trump, President Donald Trump and Theresa May at the Great Court yesterday.

The interview comes just days after Trump refused to back Mrs May after her government was plunged into crisis over the shock resignations of Johnson and former Brexit secretary David Davis.

"If he actually says these things standing next to her [at the press conference], then basically she's toast in terms of the plans that she now has", he said, adding that May is already under "enormous pressure" from her partymates, who are against her deal with the EU.

"It's for Trump to explain why he thinks there is a link between immigration into Europe and the rise in crime", he said.

"She's a total professional", Trump said. "He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person".

It comes just days after Trump declined to say whether May should remain in post, said he had "always liked" Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over the Chequers agreement, and described the United Kingdom as being in "turmoil".

Asked if the ex-minister could be in No. 10 one day, he replied: "Well I am not pitting one against the other". Connor Campbell, an analyst at SpreadEx, said Trump's remark about a trade deal "undermines the prime minister at the end of an already challenging week".


President Trump also told The Sun London Mayor Khan has "done a very bad job on terrorism" by allowing so many migrants to come to the city.

Mr Trump said: "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".

"The president of the United States of America will regretfully have the red carpet rolled out for him by this Conservative government", Ian Blackford, the Scottish National Party's leader in the Westminster Parliament, told lawmakers on Wednesday.

He said: "I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London". A number of protests against his visit are taking place.

Brexit "creates an opportunity to reach a free trade agreement that creates jobs and growth here in the UK and right across the United States", she said.

So what did he say today?

Trump said he would be spending little time in London because of protests against him planned there, which an include a blimp made to look like an infant version of the president.

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.

"She should negotiate the best way she knows how".
