Trump says May 'wrecked Brexit' in bombshell interview

Trump says May 'wrecked Brexit' in bombshell interview

Demonstrators will assemble outside the BBC building in Portland Place at 2pm on Friday and march to Trafalgar Square for a rally.

Meanwhile, Theresa May's government is nervously anticipating disruption from the guest himself.

Melania Trump pulled out all the stops for her first night in the UK. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis both quit the government this week in protest.

Extra security is in place to police a number of protests but Mr Trump said he thought Britons "like me a lot".

Soon after she published her controversial Brexit White Paper which has divided MPs within her own Conservative Party, May sought to win over the USA president after the Britain exits from the European Union in 2019. "People see him as a cheap huckster who happens to have an office we respect as president of the United States".

Trump arrived from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, touching down at Stansted Airport, 42 miles northeast of London.

The president and his wife will attend a dinner, hosted by Mrs May, at Blenheim Palace - the ancestral home of former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill - in the evening.

Downing Street insisted Mrs May welcomed Mr Trump's decision to "engage" with the Russian leader.

Bells and whistles rang out alongside cheers and claps for speakers throughout the protest, staged near the United States ambassador's official residence, as the crowd was encouraged to shout loudly in the hope Mr Trump could hear.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan - who has had a particularly contentious relationship with President Trump - approved protesters' use of a "Trump baby" blimp during the president's visit to Great Britain.

Trump next heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with the queen, as protesters stage a mass demonstration in London. That morphed into this two-day "working visit" with much less pomp and circumstance amid concern about security and crowds in central London. The "Trump Baby" protest balloon will be floating above them after the mayor gave his permission for the 20-foot inflatable to fly.

She added: 'So there's a very serious message behind this but what we're hoping is that on Friday this can be a symbol that people, no matter what they're campaigning on, can get behind, and can feel that this is representing them and all their campaign issues'.

Mr Morgan, the forthright journalist and broadcaster, hit back and questioned why the London mayor had not been so vocal over the visit of controversial Turkish President Recep Erdogan.

"The United Kingdom is leaving the European Union in a few months' time and are they prepared to do a free trade deal with the U.S., because Mr. Trump is". The balloon, made by protesters, is set to fly this weekend during his stay in London and afterwards will be transported overnight to Scotland to fly at his Turnberry golf estate on Saturday, when he is scheduled to play there.
