'The highest level of special': Trump praises US-UK relationship

Share

US President Donald Trump said he apologised to Prime Minister Theresa May today over his bombshell interview with a British tabloid, in which he claimed she had ignored his advice on Brexit and praised former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson's potential as a possible premier.

Last Sunday the Brexit Secretary resigned from the Cabinet, citing concerns at Mrs May's approach to European Union negotiations, with the Foreign Secretary also relinquishing his title just 15 hours later.

Trump told The Sun that such a deal "will probably kill" any prospect of a U.S. -U.K. free-trade agreement.

In the Sun interview, Trump renewed his attack on London's Mayor Sadiq Khan.

"I said (to Theresa May), "Make sure you have a carve out, you have to have a carve out" where no matter what happens they have the right to make a deal with the United States", Trump said in the interview.

It's fitting that the two royals stepped out for their first engagement without their husbands to take in a sport they both enjoy. Stepping out together at the All England club, Kate wore a pretty white polka dot dress by her go-to designer Jenny Packham .

"The only thing I ask of Theresa is that we make sure we can trade and we don't have any restrictions because we want to trade with the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom wants to trade with us", he said.

In his joint press conference with Mrs May on Friday, President Trump appeared to row back on an earlier newspaper interview in which he said the Government's latest proposals would kill off the prospect of a deal with the US.

Some Conservative lawmakers 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.

Trump's comments have overshadowed a visit where the president was greeted with British pomp and ceremony - the lavish gala dinner in his honor at Blenheim Palace last night - even as protesters tried to rain on the parade.

"I didn't criticize the prime minister".

London activists were highly involved in arrangements for protests against Trump's four-day visit to the UK.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday that the indictment aimed to damage the atmosphere before the summit. As the Kremlin said last week, a one-one-one meeting with you "absolutely suits" him.

The anti-Trump carnival spirit, complete with a choir, bagpiper and tambourine band, continued at the park with more speeches, poetry readings and music.

"That doesn't work, somebody else could do a better job than me".

A small group of pro-Trump supporters waved the U.S. flag alongside the Union Jack, chanting "We want Trump" and "Trump for 2020".

The president later travelled to Windsor Castle for tea with Queen Elizabeth.

Giving his views on Mr Johnson's decision to leave the Government, Mr Davis told LBC: "I had to resign because this was central to my job and if we continue with this policy and I was still there, I'd have to present it to parliament and the House of Commons, I'd have to present it in Europe".
