U.S. President Trump's views on UK's May, Brexit

Share

"I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister".

Many Britons who awoke to the visiting U.S. President Donald Trump's fusillade against the country, its prime minister's European Union exit strategy, its immigration policy and personal attacks on London's mayor Sadiq Khan - effectively blaming him directly for terror attacks in the capital city - may feel they are in a similar situation as they roll out the red carpet to a world leader seemingly intent on denigrating their nation.

Despite Trump's criticism - which pounded the front pages of almost every British tabloid - he and May are still scheduled to hold a bilateral meeting, working lunch and joint news conference on Friday.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper during his first official visit to the UK, Trump laid into May's plans to maintain close links with the European Union post-Brexit.

"I would have done it much differently", Trump added of May's Brexit approach. I think he's got what it takes, Trump told the Sun. Instead, he said, May went "the opposite way" and the results have been "very unfortunate". And that is fine. "But it is too bad what is going on", he told the tabloid, Britain's best-selling newspaper.

"The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on".

Chelsea officially confirm Antonio Conte departure
This was finally confirmed on Friday via a statement released by the Blues, who wished Conte success in the future. Out the door: Antonio Conte holds the trophy after Chelsea won the FA Cup final against Manchester United in May.

"It was not the deal that was in the referendum".

Whatever the precise truth of Farage's involvement in feeding lines to Trump, the latter's arrival during a period of British political crisis is a moment that the former has been rehearsing for several days. "They like me a lot in the UK".

Trump has always been a Brexit supporter and has expressed enthusiasm for a wide-ranging trade deal with Britain after Brexit, something heralded by eurosceptics as being one of the great benefits of exiting the bloc.

The couple will also attend a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire hosted by Mrs May on Thursday evening and stay overnight at Winfield House in Regent's Park, which is the US Ambassador's residence in London. But she also warned Trump not to ignore the "malign behaviour" of Moscow when he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki next week.

But Trump poured cold water on May's offer.

He said that May's new, softer approach to Brexit - which would leave Britain sticking to a "common rulebook" with Brussels on goods - would kill off the chances of a much sought-after U.S. -U.K. trade deal.

- Mr Trump will arrive into Stansted airport on Thursday at around lunchtime, fresh from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

The president wore a black tuxedo for the occasion as he escorted his wife from the US ambassador's London residence in Regent's Park to the awaiting helicopter Marine One. "He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K".

"Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place", Trump said.

Trump said he would try to avoid the crowd in the capital during his four-day visit to the country.

Trump's comments blaming immigration for crime in England were "preposterous", he said. Khan, London's first Muslim mayor, has been targeted by the president repeatedly on Twitter. "I think that's why Brexit happened".

Khan has urged protesters to remain peaceful and said the demonstrations are "not anti-American".

"I know Londoners are resolutely opposed to the politics of fear and despair". "The U.S. has always stood by our side as a beacon for tolerance, openness and respect", he said in a statement on Thursday.
