Donald Trump visibly annoyed by question over incendiary Brexit comments

"I don't know what you're going to do but whatever you're going to do is ok with us, just make sure you can trade with us", he said. "She wanted to go a different route", he said.

Mr Trump spoke to The Sun in Brussels ahead of his arrival in London on Thursday, warning Theresa May over Brexit and immigration, and being supportive of ex-foreign secretary Boris Johnson.

"I think it's a travesty of British values. He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K".

"I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important".

In a sometimes rambling performance following talks with May at her country retreat of Chequers, the USA president dismissed comments made in an interview with the Sun that was published on Thursday night. "He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person".

Mr Trump is due to face a press conference later in the day.

"My wife is a tremendous fan of hers".

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

But over on social media, it's also triggered a new meme, which involves a certain current British prime minister - who has been pictured looking positively smitten with her new guest. "She probably thought it was too brutal".

"I think he is a great representative for your country", he said.

Trump said he would be spending little time in London because of protests against him planned there, which an include a blimp made to look like an infant version of the president.

"Fortunately, we tend to record stories now so we have it for your enjoyment if you'd like it", he said.




At the same location a week ago, May finally won agreement for her Brexit plans from her cabinet after two years of tortuous internal wrangling.

"I would actually say that she probably went the opposite way".

Under fire for his warm embrace of Russia's Vladimir Putin, Trump on Wednesday also turned a harsh spotlight on Germany's own ties to Russian Federation, alleging that a natural gas pipeline venture with Moscow has left Angela Merkel's government "totally controlled" and "captive" to Russian Federation. I will absolutely bring that up.

"The U.S. has always stood by our side as a beacon for tolerance, openness and respect", he said in a statement on Thursday.

Trump first met May Thursday night and the pair spoke for about 90 minutes and attended a state dinner.

Fox News, the supportive network Mr Trump is known to watch extensively, called him the "Disruptor in chief", saying he had delivered a "bombshell interview" that had "thrown fuel onto the country's already fiery political debate".

Opponents of US President Donald Trump inflated a 6-meter (20-foot) blimp of the US leader as an orange, diaper-wearing baby carrying cellphone next to British parliament on Friday.

Britons are narrowly in favour of US President Donald Trump airing his views on Brexit, a Sky Data poll suggests.

You have a mayor who has done a bad job in London. Trump said Khan has done a "very bad job on crime" and a "very bad job on terrorism".

Trump's press conference on Friday came during a visit with May in Great Britain.

The White House scrambled to clean up Trump's comments.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Trump also revealed that he "feels unwelcome" in London as tens of thousands of protestors, as well as an inflatable baby blimp, are set to descend on the United Kingdom capital.
