Trump, May roll their eyes when asked about president's shocking interview

While it seemed Trump had backtracked on his criticism of the Brexit plan, as the press conference went on he flagged up areas of concerns with the US's current trade with the EU.

A mass demonstration called "Together Against Trump" by left-wing campaign groups is organised for Friday, with a giant balloon of Trump depicted as a crying baby in a nappy set to fly next to the British parliament.

"I predicted Brexit. I was cutting a ribbon for the opening of Turnberry - you know they totally did a whole renovation, it is handsome - the day before the Brexit vote", Trump said. The U.S. can not negotiate a trade deal with the United Kingdom until that date Theresa May cited, which is in 2019. "This is an incredible opportunity for our two countries and we will seize it fully", he said. "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", he said.

US President Donald Trump insisted he did not criticise Theresa May in the interview that dominated the build-up to the two leaders' press conference.

"I would have done it much differently".

"I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important", Trump told Britain's Sun newspaper.

The reality is that no one knows which position to take more seriously - the Sun interview or Trump's U-turn - and the president may not know himself.

DeLay's remarks come after Trump twice refused to take a question from CNN's chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a joint press conference Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May held at Chequers in Buckinghamshire, England, on Friday.

"I think we probably never developed a better relationship than last night", he said. "It's based on shared values", she said in an interview with Sky News.

Ms May also glossed over the comments. In what could be construed as an act of direct meddling (foreign interference for the USA imperium is genetic, programmed and inevitable), Trump had his own views about who would make a suitable replacement.

Trump declared that immigration has changed the fabric of the continent.

Tens of thousands of protesters plan to rally against Trump's four-day trip in London on Friday. "And those Tories saying we should respect him simply because he is elected President - by that logic shouldn't he respect our Prime Minister & London's Mayor?" tweeted Anna Turley, a Labour MP from Redcar.Trump is a racist & disrespects our nation. "I don't take questions from CNN", Trump told Acosta, who's network he has long had a beef with. He was heralded by military bands on his arrival at the 92-year-old monarch's home where her grandson Prince Harry married USA actress Meghan Markle in May. The couple planned to head afterward for a private weekend at one of Trump's golf properties in Scotland.

Under a brilliant blue sky, demonstrators streamed through central London's main streets carrying placards saying "Dump Trump" and "Keep your tiny hands off women's rights". But Trump said he doubted there would be a "Perry Mason" moment in which Putin would admit wrongdoing.

However his trip to meet Putin is set to be overshadowed by news that a USA federal grand jury has indicted 12 Russian military intelligence officers on charges of hacking the computer networks of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party.

There's no love lost between the US President and Sadiq Khan, who Trump said had done a "terrible job" as London mayor.

May told reporters the two would be discussing "our special relationship, which is great between the U.K. and the United States".
