Trump arrives in Britain, questions May’s Brexit plan

"I used to love London as a city".

Security teams have put massive preparations into place for Trump's visit.

Trump told the newspaper he had advised May on how to conduct Brexit negotiations, "but she didn't listen to me". I think your mayor has done a bad job, but when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?

"I would have done it much differently", Trump said.

Donald Trump has launched an astonishing attack on the British Prime Minister over her handling of Brexit, hours before touching down in the UK.

May likewise glossed over the comments in the Sun.

After his comments overnight about his British government hosts, you wouldn't think Donald Trump would be the one to take offence.

Trump's remarks Friday come after the president shocked British media by slamming May's policies Thursday night in an interview with The Sun in which he hinted that a potential U.S. -U.K. trade deal may be off the table due to the U.K.'s plan for a "soft Brexit".

Philip Hammond, the British Chancellor of the Exchequer, said that once Trump hears May explain her plan, the president will come around.

Trump also refrained from openly endorsing U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership but praised the former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who resigned Monday in protest at the Brexit deal May presented to the cabinet over the weekend for being "weak".

He also told the tabloid that he'd shared advice with May during Britain's negotiations with the European Union and she ignored it.

"The people voted to break it up (Britain's ties with the EU)", Trump said.

"Trump's policies are akin to Nazi Germany in terms of separating children from their families", said Patel, wearing a T-shirt reading, "Do I look illegal?"

Trump's Marine One departure from the ambassador's residence was met by jeers from demonstrators banging pots and pans, and another pack of protesters lined roads near the palace.

After spending the night at the USA ambassador's official residence in Regent's Park, London, the United States president will join the Theresa May at a military base on Friday to view a joint counter-terrorism exercise involving UK and U.S. special forces. I know they have had a lot of resignations.

"The President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much".

Many Britons who awoke to the visiting U.S. President Donald Trump's fusillade against the country, its prime minister's European Union exit strategy, its immigration policy and personal attacks on London's mayor Sadiq Khan - effectively blaming him directly for terror attacks in the capital city - may feel they are in a similar situation as they roll out the red carpet to a world leader seemingly intent on denigrating their nation.

Khan added: "I think our prime minister (Theresa May) should have the confidence to speak to the U.S. president on equal terms and it's for President Trump to say what he wants about me; I'm not going to rise to President Trump's views".

Donald Trump landed in the United Kingdom yesterday - his first time in the country as US President.

He said: "I have seen no evidence that this crime has been brought in by immigration from Africa or other parts of the world to Europe".

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.
