President Trump unleashes on British leader - and it’s really bad

Without the backing of her own ranks and with a working majority of just 13, the prime minister will need to rely on opposition parties, Politico reported.

U.S. President Donald Trump's criticism of British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit policies has damaged the so-called special relationship between the two nations, an expert has said.

At a press conference later in the grounds of the PM's country residence, Mr Trump insisted he "didn't criticise" the Prime Minister and hit out at "fake news".

The Times leads with Mr Trump "changing tack" and saying that he would like to secure a trade deal between the United Kingdom and the USA, having previously called it into doubt.

"It will certainly be something that we bring up and talk about", Mr Trump said.

But Trump tried to make it up to May on Friday, repeating over and over that she was a "tough negotiator", - a high form of praise from the author of "The Art of the Deal".

His departure for Scotland was delayed while he was interviewed aboard Air Force One by Piers Morgan for ITV.

Tens of thousands of protestors are expected to blight his visit, and a giant balloon dubbed the Trump Baby will fly over London. "It is not the first time Trump has immediately contradicted something he has said, or said something nonsensical, or used made up or misleading or unverifiable numbers".

Referring to the plan outlined on Thursday in which Britain would aim to keep strong ties in trading of goods with the European Union, he said: "The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on".

He added, "I said, 'Brexit will happen.' The vote is going to go positive, because people don't want to be faced with the disgusting immigration problems that they are being faced with in other countries".

"I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad". "Whatever you do is OK with me", Trump told the press conference. "We wanted to embarrass him and I think we have done that today.

As he said in his interview with the Sun, she "is a very good person" and he 'never said anything bad about her, '" Sanders said.

"It was from right here at Chequers that Prime Minister Churchill phoned President Roosevelt after Pearl Harbor", Trump said, referencing the surprise attack by the Japanese on December 7, 1941, that plunged the USA into World War II.

Mrs May said it was "all of our responsibility to ensure that transatlantic unity endures".

Trump had said he was "cracking down" on the European Union because "they have not treated the United States fairly on trading".

"We will do a trade deal with them and with others around the rest of the world", she added.

But he largely blamed the Sun, media mogul Rupert Murdoch's British newspaper, for leaving out the positive things he'd said about May. 'And so now that the details of the white paper are clear, the president and the prime minister will be able to discuss this in more detail'.
