Trump says May is doing Brexit wrong, threatening U.S. trade deal

'She has done everything she could to be nice to him and he has gone and slagged her off in the press saying that Boris Johnson would make a great prime minister, that she has messed up Brexit, that the trade deal is dead.

Speaking on ITV's Good Morning Britain today, Ms Thornberry said it is "extraordinarily rude of Donald Trump to behave like this".

But it would keep European Union rules on goods to protect complex manufacturing supply chains, using technology to levy its own duties on UK-bound products from outside the bloc, while diverging on services.

The UK hopes to make progress on a post-Brexit trade relationship, although the scope for a bilateral trade deal would be limited if the UK remains aligned with European Union regulations on goods.

The blimp, which has been given permission by the capital's city hall to be flown above Parliament Square gardens, raised £18,000 (or nearly $24,000) from crowdfunding sources and has been described by former far-right UKIP party leader Nigel Farage as the "biggest insult to a sitting president".

"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", he told The Sun.

More than 60,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday when protesters intend to fly a large balloon over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby.

The US President, 72, who will meet the Prime Minister and Queen during a four-day red carpet visit, landed at Stansted Airport on Air Force One at just before 2pm (UK time) and walked off hand-in-hand with First Lady Melania.

"The people voted to break it up so I would imagine that's what they would do, but maybe they're taking a different route - I don't know if that is what they voted for".

Trump's wife is also concerned about how the British people will be viewing her and her husband during the trip.

"I would have done it much differently".

Top it off with the introduction of trade policies that have targeted some European industries - even though European nations are longtime friends accustomed to easy trade with the US - and it is not surprising that Trump's itinerary will keep him out of central London on Friday, when large protests are planned.

Trump said that one of them, former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, "would be a great Prime Minister".

"Maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route [on Brexit], so I don't know if that's what they voted for", he told a press conference after the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

"I think that [the British] people like me a lot and agree with me on immigration".

"We in this country, and I hope I do not regret saying this, are very good at this sort of thing".

He said: "I like him a lot". I think he is a great representative for your country.

President Trump on Thursday blasted London Mayor Sadiq Khan as soft on terrorism and regretted that he's been made to feel "unwelcomed" in the British capital.

"I would actually say that she probably went the opposite way. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?"

Yet Trump's schedule will largely keep him out of central London.

A high fence has been erected around the US ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night and the embassy has sent out an alert warning Americans in London to keep a low profile in case protests turn violent.

Other protests - including several "family friendly" gatherings - will take place at every place he will visit over the coming days. Melania Trump, 48, isn't amused by the way the Londoners are going to greet her husband.

Referring to planned protests on Friday, Trump added: "I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important. I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism", he said.
