Asked about Trump's comments, May said: "We're delivering on the vote of the British people to take back control of our money, our laws and our borders".

President Trump's complaints about "fake news" are often dishonest.

Thousands began protesting in London as British Prime Minister Theresa May welcomed US President Donald Trump to her official country residence for a meeting that is expected to be unusually tense, after he trashed her Brexit plan in a newspaper interview. Almost 2 million Brits have signed on to a petition demanding that Trump not be honored with a state visit and someone may have been listening.

Fresh from a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit where Trump chided Germany and other European nations for failing to contribute enough to defense spending, British Prime Minister Theresa May is hoping his trip will boost the close ties between their two nations and help forge a future free trade deal.

"With the flexibility that is built into the white paper proposals, there is absolutely no reason why a trade deal between us and the United States can not happen and I think both sides do want it to happen". "The trade is a little bit tricky". "It's an opportunity to reach a free trade agreement that creates jobs and growth here in the United Kingdom and right across the U.S.", she said.

A much-ballyhooed balloon of Trump as a snarling baby in diapers flew over the houses of Parliament for a couple of hours, with hundreds of people cheering as it floated upward and organizers hoping to bring it to other stops on Trump's tour of Britain, especially Turnberry in Scotland, where he will play golf at his resort Saturday. I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me.

May is facing a rebellion by Brexit hardliners over the proposals, including the resignation of Johnson and Brexit minister David Davis this week, although moderates and big businesses have been supportive. And, although he insisted he was not trying to pit Johnson against May, he added: "I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister".

Trump gears up for meeting with "competitor" Putin after rocky North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit
When asked how that conversation might go, Trump said , "He may deny it". "I think he's got what it takes". "And that's fine. Trump has repeatedly denounced low levels of defense spending among remaining members, particularly Germany.

On Thursday evening, Donald and Melania Trump joined May and her husband, Philip May, for a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, the family home of Sir Winston Churchill, the Independent reported. Trump labeled the U.S. -U.K. relationship "the highest level of special" and said May was an "incredible woman" doing a great job.

On Friday, Trump said his relationship with May is "very, very strong" even after his comments to The Sun.

He also refused to take a question from CNN, saying: "CNN is fake news, I don't take questions from fake news".

"I would say Brexit is Brexit", he told reporters. "Let's go to a real network".

In his interview with The Sun, Trump slammed May over her "soft" Brexit plan, which has put May's standing as the head of the Conservative Party in jeopardy.

He repeated the falsehood during a press conference with UK Prime Minister Theresa May.
