Concerning Brexit, Trump said, “I would have done it much differently”.
Yet supporters of Brexit see a USA trade deal as a central plank of their strategy: Vote Leave, the campaign to leave the European Union, said post-Brexit trade deals centering on the United States could create 284,000 jobs.
“That is fake news, says Trump”.
“It’s changing the culture; I think it’s a very negative thing for Europe”, he said, noting that it was not politically correct to say so, “but I’ll say it and I’ll say it loud”. “I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn’t agree, she didn’t listen to me”, he told The Sun. And you know, he’s frankly used Donald Trump to really help define himself even further in this city as a defender of these sorts of liberal values and multicultural values which, you know, you and I began the conversation on with immigration.
“Given Trump’s appalling actions and rhetoric, he doesn’t even deserve to look at a statue of Churchill let alone sit in his seat”.
However, while Trump and May exchanged warm words, tens of thousands of protesters marched against the USA president through central London, bringing much of the British capital to a standstill.
Trump also said that Boris Johnson, who had resigned as foreign secretary on Monday in protest of May’s recent announcement of a plan for Brexit, was “a very talented guy” who “would be a great prime minister”.
Trump said his statements to The Sun were based on reports he had read that indicated free trade would likely not be possible with Britain after it leaves the EU.
Yasmine and Becky both said they couldn’t sit by and do nothing.
Trump’s Brexit comments came on the same day May’s government published long-awaited proposals for Britain’s relations with the European Union after it leaves the bloc next year.
“The President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much”.
He blamed Russia’s takeover of Crimea on his predecessor, calling it “an Obama disaster”, and added that he didn’t think Putin “would do it with me”. May’s critics who said it confirmed their fears about her strategy.
Downing Street said Mrs May had presented the United States president with a gift of an illustrated ancestral chart of his Scottish heritage through his mother, and his wife with a bespoke perfume called the First Lady in a custom bottle. May, who was already reeling from a backlash within her Conservative Party caucus over a new Brexit plan she announced last week that included a customs arrangement with the EU. So I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad. ‘I think we should be standing up against him, I think Theresa May should be standing up against him.
The Sun’s write-up of its interview, which was recorded, quoted him describing her as a “nice person” and saying they get along “very nicely”.
The criticisms sparked unfavorable comment across the British media, with the Financial Times newspaper writing in an editorial that Trump’s criticism “deliberately weakens the United Kingdom prime minister at a time when her government has been rocked by a series of resignations”.
Protests are also planned at locations including Windsor, where Trump will meet with Queen Elizabeth II.
“I think it’s a frightful thing that Germany’s doing”, he said.
The Trumps European trip continues with a weekend trip to Scotland before arriving in Helsinki, Finland, for a highly anticipated summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. I think what has happened is very tough. You know, it’s interesting because I am a people person.
“Depicting Trump as a baby is a great way of targeting his fragile ego, and mocking him is our main motivation”, said Matthew Bonner, one of the organisers of the balloon flight.
