Donald Trump claims relationship with Theresa May is 'very good'

The press conference comes as thousands of people protest in London against his visit.

The interview, published during a gala dinner May hosted for Trump at Blenheim Palace, appeared to further ratchet up tensions in a relationship that's been fraught since the president assumed office.

On Friday afternoon, May and Trump were together at a joint press conference after holding previously scheduled talks at the prime minister's country residence Chequers.

Asked about the interview, Trump said he did not criticize the prime minister and he had a lot of respect for her. He dismissed the interview, conducted by a Ruport Murdoch-owned publication, as "fake news" saying it didn't include all his comments about May.

Venting to The Sun, a conservative newspaper owned by Rupert Murdoch (who also owns 21st Century Fox, the parent company of FOX Business), Trump said Prime Minister Theresa May had "wrecked it" and if her plan to exit the European Union maintained their trade partnership, that would be a problem and "probably kill" a bilateral trade deal with the U.S.

It's not that independently recording interviews would necessarily be a bad idea, but given Trump's extemporaneous rhetoric and lack of discipline, it might be better to leave things as ambiguous as possible.

As diplomatic relations slipped further, digital minister Margot James fired her own missive at both Boris Johnson and the former reality TV star, tweeting: "No Mr President Boris Johnson would make a bad PM". "The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one people voted on". "The trade is a little bit tricky". Mr. Trump said he advised May how to manage Brexit, but she didn't listen.

However, while Trump and May exchanged warm words, tens of thousands of protesters marched against the US president through central London, bringing much of the British capital to a standstill.

Adding to his extraordinary takedown of May, Trump praised Boris Johnson, who stepped down this week as foreign secretary over Brexit.

He also said Boris Johnson would make a "great prime minister". As images of the front page story were released on Twitter, fury spread among United Kingdom diplomats.

Criticising May for the warm welcome given to the American leader, he said: "Theresa May has invited President Trump to our country at a time when his unsafe and inhumane policies are putting the lives and wellbeing of millions of people at risk".

However, he doubled down on his comments about Johnson, before adding that "this incredible woman right here is doing a fantastic job".

Then-President Obama in 2016 had also predicted a tough road for a US-UK trade deal.

"I don't think we should be going through the White Paper and trying to undermine it and trying to find inconsistencies", he said. "Cities in America all suffered terror attacks", Khan told British broadcaster Sky News.

"Let's go to John Roberts of Fox [instead]".

"It will certainly be something that we bring up and talk about", the U.S. president said. He also argued that USA laws on immigration are too weak and said, "We have laws that are so bad I don't even call them laws".
