Trump, May hold talks amid firestorm over Brexit

Trump, May hold talks amid firestorm over Brexit

In an antagonistic interview with The Sun, the USA president lashed out at Sadiq Khan, accusing him of doing a "terrible" job, claimed Boris Johnson would make a great Prime Minister and made it clear he was very aware of the giant inflatable Trump baby due to fly above Parliament today - and would be avoiding London. Tens of thousands of people are expected to attend, while dozens of similar events are planned in cities and towns around the country.

Trump, in an interview with Britain's Sun newspaper, criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan, saying he had not been "hospitable" to the US government.

"I believe in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation", he said in an press conference in Brussels.

"No, if they do that I would say that that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States".

But 51% again say that the U.S. president is untrustworthy to negotiate a trade deal with, including 38% who say he is "very untrustworthy".

The UK hopes to make progress on a post-Brexit trade relationship, although the scope for a bilateral trade deal would be limited if the UK remains aligned with European Union regulations on goods.

"I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the awful things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in", Trump said, later adding that he thinks Khan has insulted him by not being "hospitable to a government that is very important. The trade is a little bit tricky".

The trip coincides with a tumultuous week for May after two senior ministers resigned in protest at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves next March.

"She said: 'Don't worry it's only the press.' I thought that was very professional".

In 2015, it was Mr Johnson's turn to face the wrath of Trump who claimed parts of London were so radicalised that "police are afraid for their own lives".

He also suggested former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson would make a great prime minister.

The interview emerged as the Trumps dined with the Mays, as well as other members of her recently reshuffled cabinet, including new foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt, at the beginning of Mr Trump's working visit. As images of the front page story were released on Twitter, fury spread among United Kingdom diplomats.

"I really look forward to meeting her".

However, he later said Ms May was doing a "fantastic job". I don't take questions from CNN", and then called on "John Roberts of Fox.

"If you reported them that's good", Mr Trump told the political correspondent.

"Let's go to John Roberts of Fox [instead]".

Trump later got The Sun journalist who conducted the interview, Tom Newton Dunn, who was sitting in on the Chequers press conference, to agree that he had said nice things about May, though he complained that these were not in the headline.
