The Donald Trump baby blimp will be flown at a protest in Edinburgh.
For her part May, in a Facebook post published before Trump’s arrival in the United Kingdom and his Sun interview, insisted that “we are having good discussions with countries we would aim to sign trade deals with, including the USA, as I will discuss with President Trump when he arrives in the United Kingdom on Thursday”.
“I would have done it much differently”, Trump told the paper.
“I…want to thank Prime Minister May for pursuing fair and reciprocal trade with the United States”, Trump said. They weren’t in the headline of the story, he said, so he didn’t see them.
In the interview, Trump described Johnson as “a very talented guy”, adding: “I like him a lot”.
Trump pointed out that the United Kingdom is one of just five North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members which are meeting their defense spending commitments.
Trump said: “The relationship between our two nations is indispensable to the cause of liberty, justice, and peace”.
The President’s interview also amounted to a personal rebuke of his host.
Asked if he could become prime minister, he added: “Well I am not pitting one against the other”.
Trump also claimed Khan – with whom he has clashed in the past – has “done a very bad job on terrorism”.
“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”, Sanders wrote. I gave her a suggestion, not advice, I wouldn’t want to give her advice, I’d give her a suggestion. Am I allowed to go higher than that?
“If you reported them that’s good”, Mr Trump told the political correspondent.
“Whatever you do is OK with us”, Trump said at a joint press conference held on the lawns of Chequers, the Prime Minister’s country residence.
But that special relationship appeared on the rocks Friday following Trump’s stunning interview with The Sun in which the president politically undercut May while she battles to maintain control of her government.
“We don’t have to say anything – just the fact that we’re standing up and saying “no” is enough”.
Britain, not unlike the United States, is a country with a strong immigrant presence built over the last century. Trump and his wife spent nearly an hour with the 92-year-old monarch, staying 17 minutes after their expected departure time. All told, they’re planning more than 60 marches around the country, with the biggest expected for Friday in London.
Earlier tens of thousands of protesters gathered in central London to denounce the visit for stoking “division along fault lines of fear and hatred”.
Some Twitter users speculated that she could hit back, as Hugh Grant did playing the prime minister in romantic comedy “Love Actually”.
Trump’s endorsement of Johnson must be especially irksome to May.
Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon believes now is the time for Boris Johnson to challenge British prime minister Theresa May for her job, the Daily Telegraph reported on Saturday.
The president stood behind his comments to The Sun regarding immigration, saying it was “changing the culture”.
Mr Trump told reporters: “He’s been very nice to me”.
Trump said he had been “far tougher on Russian Federation than anybody”.
After leaving Chequers, Trump traveled to Windsor Castle to have tea with Queen Elizabeth. Place is going wild over the vote.
