An Unsettled Britain Plays Host to Trump

An Unsettled Britain Plays Host to Trump

'I don't think so - not right now, ' White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told DailyMail.com in advance of Trump's joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May. "She's a total professional, because when I saw her this morning I said, 'I want to apologize, because I said such good things about you"'.

"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal", Trump said.

The president said the former foreign secretary would make a "great prime minister", adding "I think he's got what it takes".

The news of his interview with the newspaper broke while he was at a black-tie dinner with May at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire on Thursday evening.

Trump spoke out against the balloon and against London mayor Sadiq Khan, who approved its launch.

That's not exactly what Trump is doing here.

With its straw-blond hair, questionable face tan and unmistakably out-of-proportion hands, a blimp meant to depict President Donald Trump as a screaming baby flew outside the Parliament building in London Friday.

The agenda for Trump and May on Friday includes discussion on relations with Russian Federation, ahead of a summit in Finland on Monday between Trump and President Vladimir Putin.

"I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad", the president said.

Health Canada recalls heart drug due to contamination with possible carcinogen
Health Canada announced Tuesday a major recall of drugs used for high blood pressure and heart failure because they may be contaminated with a probable human carcinogen.

The interview was so surprising, Trump's press officer Sarah Sanders issued a statement overnight Thursday to clarify the president's attitude toward May. "As he said in his interview with the Sun she "is a very good person" and he 'never said anything bad about her.' He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person. I think they agree with me on immigration", he told reporters in Brussels.

As the Trumps dined with the Mays, protests in the British capital took place outside Winfield House, the residence of US Ambassador Woody Johnson.

Trump added that he wished the Sun newspaper put the "tremendous things" he said about May in its headline, but acknowledged, "That's one of those things".

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.

Last week at the same location, May finally won agreement for her Brexit strategy from her cabinet but within days, two senior ministers quit, which Trump said earlier in the week had left Britain in turmoil.

The man behind the balloon said the juvenility of his idea was a match for the juvenility of the president.

Asked about Trump's comments, May said: "We're delivering on the vote of the British people to take back control of our money, our laws and our borders".

"Depicting Trump as a baby is a great way of targeting his fragile ego, and mocking him is our main motivation", organiser Matthew Bonner said.
