Donald Trump says relationship with Theresa May is very good

CNN said that Mr Trump had "savaged" Mrs May with a "Brexit bomb" before going to meet her, saying: "Trump's interview published Thursday amounted to a stunning diplomatic affront for a visiting U.S. president, emerging while Trump was still at a gala dinner May threw in honor of his visit".

Mr Trump has also frequently angered British politicians and has been involved in social media spats with London's Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan who Mr Trump said had "done a very bad job on terrorism". To those intent on causing trouble or breaking the law, I simply say: "you are not welcome", he said in a statement.

The Conservative MP said that Trump would negotiate Brexit "bloody hard", adding: "There'd be all sorts of breakdowns, all sorts of chaos".

Just hours after May's foreign minister, Boris Johnson, resigned and complained that the Brexit dream was being suffocated, Trump said he might speak to him during the trip.

Trump told The Sun he felt her approach of keeping some ties to the European Union would "affect trade with the United States, unfortunately in a negative way", and referenced his administration's combative trade posture with the EU.

"The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on", Trump said.

When asked about Trump's comments, May's spokesman said she was looking forward to sitting down with Trump to talk him through the negotiating stance.

But Trump declined to provide any details about the advice he provided May.

The US president told Mrs May "whatever you do is OK with me" on Brexit, but urged her to "make sure we can trade together".

Trump even asserted that Johnson, a New York-born former mayor of London, "would be a great prime minister".

"Scottish Secretary David Mundell greeted the president at Prestwick on Friday night and said: "(Mr Trump) said he had been in Scotland many times and was very pleased to be here as president.

Khan gave protesters permission to fly the 20-foot-tall balloon, depicting Trump as an angry baby in a diaper. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

Trump, whose hardline immigration policies have included the recent "zero tolerance" policy that led to the separation of immigrant families, bemoaned migration flows into Europe, calling the changing population there "a shame". "It was, I think, a celebration of the very special relationship the United States had".

There were also demonstrations close to Winfield House, the United States ambassador's residence near Regents Park where the president and first lady Melania Trump will spend the night.

The Huffington Post headline highlighted the president's remarks on immigration and terror attacks, saying: "Trump storms United Kingdom: blasts May, goes full racist".

The biggest protests will be on Friday, when tens of thousands of people are expected to march through central London and converge on the iconic Trafalgar Square. Some of their signs read: "Dump Trump", "Lock Him Up", and "There Will Be Hell Toupee".

But for many British diplomats, Brexit marks the collapse of a 70-year British strategy of trying to balance European integration with a US alliance based on blood, trade and intelligence sharing.

During his 28 hours there, Trump had disparaged longtime North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, cast doubt on his commitment to the mutual-defense organization and sent the 29-member pact into frenzied emergency session.

"You have a mayor who has done a awful job in London", Trump said, adding later that Khan had "done a very bad job on terrorism".
