Thousands take to London's streets to protest at Trump visit

While his trip was not a full state visit, he has been given red carpet treatment and is scheduled to have tea later with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, where her grandson Prince Harry married U.S. actress Meghan Markle in May.

When asked what he hopes to accomplish in his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, Trump said they would be talking about Ukraine, Syria and other parts of the Middle East as well as nuclear proliferation.

"I actually told Theresa May how to do [Brexit], but she didn't agree. I think he is a great representative for your country", Trump told the newspaper.

Because of the wave of immigration, Trump said, Europe is "losing [its] culture".

Trump followed a similar pattern at this week's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit by slamming USA allies at the outset but ultimately claiming North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was stronger than it was before.

Speaking in the grounds of the PM's official country residence, Mr Trump said he had given her a suggestion about how to come out on top in the talks but "she found it maybe too brutal".

Donald Trump claims relationship with Theresa May is 'very good'
On Thursday, Trump told reporters at a press conference in Brussels that to him, Putin, was a " competitor " rather than an enemy. Soloch said that U.S. sanctions against companies involved in Nord Stream 2 could be in the pipeline.

In an interview with The Sun, Trump said May had ignored his advice on Britain's departure from the European Union.

However, that has angered hardliners in May's Cabinet and prompted high-level resignations in the past week, including the departure of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who Trump called "a very talented guy".

However, most people also think he is "untrustworthy" to negotiate a trade deal with.

After Trump's interview was published, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the president "likes and respects Prime Minister May very much", adding that he had "never said anything bad about her".

"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.

He also said he "used to love London" but now chooses not to visit the city. "The idea that we would park our rights and privileges and freedoms because it may cause offence to a USA president, I think people in London and the United Kingdom would find objectionable as indeed would Americans", the mayor said. "It was, I think, a celebration of the very special relationship the United States had". "Right now we're going to be talking about some things taking place in the Middle East and elsewhere".

After causing panic at his threat to pull the USA out of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation earlier this week, said: "They're taking advantage of the United States".

"The reason I felt it was going to happen was because of immigration".

So what did he say today?

May and Trump are scheduled to hold talks and a joint news conference on Friday.

He claimed The Sun didn't include any of the positive things he said about Mrs May, and that he has had a chance to get to know her much better on this trip.

The man behind the balloon said the juvenility of his idea was a match for the juvenility of the president.
