Donald Trump Stokes Brexit Hardliner Fears Over Theresa May's Exit Plans

"I think he is a great representative for your country", Trump told the newspaper.

Trump backed away from his criticism of how May is handling Britain's exit from the European Union. All told, they're planning more than 60 marches around the country, with the biggest expected for Friday in London.

Some lawmakers in her deeply divided Conservative Party have cast May's "business-friendly" Brexit plan as a betrayal that would leave Britain too close to the European Union and warned that she might face a leadership challenge.

"Whatever you're going to do is okay with us".

"Just make sure we can trade together, that's all that matters", he said.

In his interview with The Sun, Trump reiterated his frustration with past U.S. administrations, saying they failed to act to rectify the disparity in financial commitment between the United States and its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners. I did give Theresa, who I like-I did give her my views on what she should do and how she should negotiate. The mayor had blotted his copybook by doing "a very awful job on terrorism" and, just for good measure, crime in general.

After leaving Chequers, Trump travelled to Windsor Castle to have tea with Queen Elizabeth.

The body language of that highly symbolic meeting was always going to be closely scrutinized.

On Friday night, the president and first lady Melania Trump were welcomed in grand style to Blenheim for a special dinner with May. May's critics who said it confirmed their fears about her strategy. The British press was divided over whether Trump simply stumbled over a bit of royal stagecraft or breached protocol.

May insisted earlier Thursday that her plan was exactly what Britons had voted for in the 2016 referendum.

"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal", Trump said.

The Sun interview seemed to dash those hopes.

Drug company's lawsuit could derail scheduled Nevada execution
A witness testified Dozier used a sledgehammer to break the victim's limbs so the corpse would fit in a plastic storage container. Stocks of the drugs commonly used in executions have been dwindling as their producers have refused to supply them to prisons.

Trump said his comments came after he "read some reports" that suggested the United Kingdom would not be able to make a free trade deal with the U.S., but he said May and her representatives have since reassured him that will still be possible. "Now, he might not like the current president, but I represent the United States".

May's advisers said that the news conference was a welcome relief - and that the trip was salvaged from disaster.

A crowd of bystanders assembled in a square opposite the Houses of Parliament as the Trump blimp flew overhead.

"Unfortunately, there was a story that was done which was generally fine but it didn't put in what I said about the Prime Minister and I said a tremendous thing", he said.

"And I think he's not been hospitable to a government that is a very important government".

"She is a total professional because when I saw her I said, 'I want to apologize, because I said such good things about you, ' " Trump said. And in turn, Donald Trump has had very harsh words to say about Khan.

The Trumps entered the castle's Quadrangle by Range Rover after arriving on the castle grounds by helicopter.

Trump also wants changes to the interior of the plane, too.

Ms May also thanked the US President for his support over Russia, which Britain has blamed for a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in south-west England in March. "I would-I would actually say she probably went the opposite way".

May, standing at a lectern beside Trump, disagreed. He asked one of the reporters who was at the press conference to confirm he said "nice things" about May and that he wished they had put those in the headline of the story.

The US leader has recently threatened to hit imports of European cars with a 20-percent tariff if Brussels doesn't remove levies and other trade barriers on US goods. "Immigration is not a crime", said another.
