Donald Trump arrives for Chequers talks hours after humiliating Theresa May

He added: "We have enough difficulty with the European Union".

"We are cracking down right now on the European Union because they have not treated the United States fairly on trading". "The people voted to break it up, so I imagine that's what they'll do".

The timing of the comments added to the awkwardness.

Trump arrived in Britain Thursday, and was expected to be in London before later moving to his golf resort in Scotland. "He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K".

Trump's visit to Britain followed two days of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium, where the US president shook up the conference with rhetoric about other members failing to meet fiscal defense requirements, the possibility that he could end the United States' 70-year membership in the alliance and Germany being "captive" to Russian energy. He also said a rival politician, Boris Johnson, would make a "great prime minister".

The president said May is "doing a fantastic job" as British prime minister and said "I think she's a terrific woman".

"I would have done it much differently. I think they agree with me on immigration", he told reporters in Brussels. "She wanted to go a different route", he told the paper. And that is fine.

Trump said the interview published by the Sun omitted his praise of May, and that his staff had taped the interview: "It's called fake news and we solve a lot of problems with the good old recording instrument". "But it is too bad what is going on". "The U.S. has always stood by our side as a beacon for tolerance, openness and respect", he said in a statement on Thursday.

"They didn't put it in the headline, I wish they put that in the headline, that's one of those things".

"I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly".

Another Twitter user re-jigged the lyrics to Atomic Kitten's "Whole Again", writing: "Looking back on when we first met, I cannot escape and I cannot forget, Donald, you're the one, You still turn me on, You can hold my hand again". "I think he's got what it takes, and I think he's got the right attitude to be a great prime minister".

Another wrote: "I think I can hear Dusty singing "The Look of Love".

"I'm quite clear that both the United Kingdom and the U.S. have a special relationship that means we stand shoulder to shoulder at times of adversity", the Labour mayor said.

Standing next to May during a joint news conference at the British Prime Minister's official country house, Chequers, Trump announced he had at least started to apologize earlier in the morning. But I told her how to do it. "If the strategy at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was to shore up more spending in some ways, the president didn't want to take the win that he had because actually North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have been increasing spending on their own defense, which they haven't yet hit the deadline for in 2024".

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