Trump Apologizes to May and Vows U.K. Trade Deal After Brexit

Donald Trump has warned Theresa May's Brexit plan will "kill" any future US trade deal in bombshell comments as the President met the British prime minister in the United Kingdom.

In an interview with the Sun published late Thursday, as he dined with May, Trump said her proposal to execute a so-called "soft Brexit", maintaining ties with the European Union, was wrong and would torpedo a USA trade deal.

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". "I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me."I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad".

Interestingly, older people are more likely to think Mr Trump was wrong to express his opinions on Brexit, but young people are more likely to think that Britain would be unwise to trust him in trade negotiations. During the interview, Trump also praised former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan, London's first-ever Muslim mayor, one of the most prominent Muslim politicians in Europe.

More than 60,000 people are signed up to protest in London on Friday with plans afoot for a giant blimp portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby to sit over parliament. "I think they agree with me on immigration", he told reporters in Brussels.

"The United States looks forward to finalizing a great bilateral trade deal" with the U.K., he said.

The interview was so surprising, Trump's press officer Sarah Sanders issued a statement overnight Thursday to clarify the president's attitude toward May. I haven't been there in a long time. And, although he insisted he was not trying to pit Johnson against May, he added: "I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister. With a lot of resignations", Trump told a news conference at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

Two ministers broke cover to make their displeasure at Mr Trump's comments known.

Del Potro was straining to stay in touch in almost every point, and his gambling instincts drove him to explore the white lines. Nadal started strong on serve to power his way into a 3-2 lead during the opening set.


Earlier, activists floated a six-meter-high blimp outside parliament depicting the US president as an orange, snarling nappy-wearing baby.

On Friday, Trump's official events were all set for outside London, away from the major protests, which appeared to be a concession to his famously thin skin.

Ms Thornberry added: 'I don't trust her to stand up for our country when it comes to President Trump.

"She should negotiate the best way she knows how, but it's too bad what's going on", Trump said. He and First Lady Melania Trump are scheduled to have tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle in the late afternoon.

Trump's trip coincides with a tumultuous week for May after two senior ministers resigned in protest at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves next March.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan defended his decision to give permission for the blimp to be flown, saying it was not for him to be a censor or to decide what is in good or bad taste.

Addressing the 100-strong group, the prime minister said there was an "unprecedented" opportunity to do a deal that boosted jobs and growth in both countries.

"I also said that this incredible woman right here is doing a fantastic job".
