Boris Johnson would make a "great prime minister" and Theresa May made a bad Brexit deal by ignoring his advice, US President Donald Trump told a British tabloid. But it was his comments about Brexit just before arriving that have already caused difficulty for Ms. May.
Mr Trump had a lot to say about his friend Mr Johnson, including expressing his sadness that he chose to quit his role in government over the Brexit plan. Finally, he will head to Scotland without returning to London for any more meetings.
The controversial 45th President of the United States will visit the UK for the first time in his position on Thursday, July 12. "I think that's why Brexit happened". "I think he's got what it takes".
A lot of this visit has been carefully choreographed, as the prime minister and the president dance around each other.
His visit coincides with "a pretty hot spot, with many resignations", he noted before take-off from Brussels for London on Thursday, referring to the political crisis over the Brexit white paper.
Ms. May quickly moved to fix the damage.
A trade deal with the United States is one of the main aims of Brexit supporters within May's Conservative Party, who are concerned that she is making too many concessions to the EU.
Although Trump has said this practice will be stopped, thousands of children remain separated from their parents and face great difficulty locating their relatives.
Trump is due to stay overnight at Winfield House, where demonstrators plan to play recordings of migrant children held in U.S. detention centres.
Protesters against the visit of US President Donald Trump gather with placards at a barrier set up to block access to the US ambassador's residence Winfield House in Regents Park in London.
A demonstration supporting Mr. Trump is also scheduled to take place in London on Saturday.
Right-wing think tank Bow Group is holding a pro-Trump rally in Westminster to show support for the president.
Trump claimed member nations had agreed to boost their defense budgets significantly and reaffirmed - after days of griping that the USA was being taken advantage of by its allies - that the US remains faithful to the accord. She was hoping to win over critics of her Brexit proposal with the release of a 104-page document outlining details of the plan.
The plan also seeks to keep Britain in major EU agencies, including the European Aviation Safety Agency, the European Medicines Agency and the police agency Europol.
They will then move on to Chequers, the prime minister's country retreat in Buckinghamshire, for a working lunch and "bilateral talks on a range of global issues".
"I would say Brexit is Brexit", he told reporters. "If they do that, then their trade deal with the US will probably not be made".
Free trade would not apply to services, which account for 80 per cent of the British economy. "They were frank, but there was no finger-pointing or lack of respect", the French president said.
