Trump scuppers trade deal with United Kingdom under May's Brexit

Trump scuppers trade deal with United Kingdom under May's Brexit

The leaders are now set to hold talks ahead of a press conference which will take place later on Friday, after which Trump will travel to Windsor Castle to meet with Queen Elizabeth II.

Trump, who arrived in Britain on Thursday, told the Sun newspaper that planned protests against him in London and other British cities made him feel unwelcome so he was avoiding the capital as much as possible.

"And it's for President Trump to explain why he singled me as the mayor of London out and not the mayors of other cities and leaders of other cities", he told Sky News.

"I don't know how long it was, he was clearly very interested, but the chefs did a fantastic job making sure the food still went out properly".

"Whether people like or loathe Donald Trump, they better get used to it, because you believe he won't be the only Trump we'll see getting the presidency?"

U.S. first lady Melania Trump, U.S. President Donald Trump, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May, and her husband, Philip May, stand on the steps in the Great Court to watch the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards perform a ceremonial welcome.

Asked if the new row could jeopardize that bond, he said: "It takes two to tango, and I'm not tweeting President Trump or saying beastly things about him".

"And President Trump has done very many interviews talking about me".

They added that as a whole, polled Britons have a negative view of Trump, but regarding his visit to their country, it can "broadly be described as negative but pragmatic".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan gave the greenlight to activists to fly a giant balloon depicting an orange baby Trump throwing a tantrum during the USA president's visit.

While the many thousands are expected to line the streets and protest against Trump, politicians have become involved too. Khan gave protesters permission to fly the 20-foot-tall balloon, depicting Trump as an angry baby in a diaper.

"I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it's never going to be what it was and I don't mean that in a positive way", he said.

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

Trump and May had dinner together at Blenheim Palace on Thursday night. I think they agree with me on immigration.

Trump also said former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who quit this week over May's Brexit plan, would make a "great prime minister".

A statement on its website reads, "We will make it clear to the British government that it's not OK to normalize Trump's agenda and the hate and fear it has sparked".

"You have a mayor who has done a bad job in London", he said in an interview with Friday's edition of The Sun newspaper.

Addressing the 100-strong group, the prime minister said there was an "unprecedented" opportunity to do a deal that boosted jobs and growth in both countries.

A march in support of Trump will start at the US Embassy on the south bank of the River Thames and end near the prime minister's residence at Downing Street on Saturday.

The president told The Sun: "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". Some signs read "Dump Trump", "Lock Him Up" and "There Will Be Hell Toupee".
