Donald Trump's kind-of, sort-of apology to Theresa May

13 Juillet 2018

Trump also said former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who quit this week over May's Brexit plan, would make a "great prime minister".

Activists inflate a giant balloon depicting US President Donald Trump as an orange baby in north London on July 10, 2018 ahead of a demonstration in London to coincide with the visit of the US president.

Mr Trump and his wife Melania are at Windsor Castle to have tea with the Queen.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in response to questions about the president's Sun interview said in a statement: "The President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much".

At Chequers, Trump and May will discuss foreign policy, according to White House officials.

Donald Trump has heaped praise on "incredible" Theresa May and hailed UK-US relations as the "highest level of special" hours after incendiary comments criticising her premiership.

Sterling came under pressure on Friday following comments by Donald Trump that a post-Brexit trade deal between Britain and the U.S. could be dead. Immigration was "very bad for Europe", he said, citing recent terror attacks. 'I am not pitting one against the other. "I believe after speaking with the prime minister's people and trade experts a deal will be possible".

He also criticized immigration and said London Mayor Sadiq Khan had failed to stop terrorism.

"The president of the United States of America will regretfully have the red carpet rolled out for him by this Conservative government", Ian Blackford, the Scottish National Party's leader in the Westminster Parliament, told lawmakers on Wednesday.

"I used to love London as a city", Trump said.

"This is what people need to be doing - to come together in their communities to organize and work out how to stand against right-wing populism and xenophobia that we're seeing not just in the USA but in Europe", organizer Kevin Smith told The Associated Press.

At the time, Khan also said "Trump is not welcome here" in London. "It was, I think, a celebration of the very special relationship the United States had". A number of protests against his visit are taking place.

"I'm going to a pretty hot spot right now, right?"

So what did he say today?

Calling her a "tremendous woman", Trump said "she has really never made a mistake". "We record when we deal with reporters - it's called fake news". Even if his criticism of May were part of a negotiation strategy to achieve a better trade deal with the United Kingdom, as Brennan pointed out, that's not even on the table yet. Instead, he said, May went "the opposite way", and the results have been "very unfortunate".

On Brexit, he said Brexit suggestions - which he said was "not advice" - was deemed "too brutal" by Mrs May. We follow the day's events in pictures. "He links immigrants to terrorism, specifically, rather than employment, which is actually part of what pushed up some of the Brexit negotiations".

Asked how he would rate the relationship between the USA and UK, Mr Trump answered: "The highest grade of special".
