The British government on Thursday published its long-awaited Brexit blueprint aimed at restarting stalled talks with the European Union, only for it to be panned by eurosceptics, the City of London and the USA president.

Donald Trump issued scathing criticism of Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy during his visit to Britain, as campaigners planned a mass protest against the USA president on Friday.

US President Donald Trump has lobbed a verbal hand grenade at Theresa May saying the British PM has wrecked the UK's exit from the European Union and killed any chances of a free trade deal with the US.

Donald Trump has launched an extraordinary attack on Theresa May, saying she ignored his advice on Brexit and had, therefore, put a potential trade deal with the United States at risk.

Ms May made a direct pitch for a trade deal with Washington, praising the friendship between the two allies, glossing over Mr Trump's previous remarks that Britain was a "hot spot" in turmoil over Brexit.

Mr. Trump landed in London on Thursday afternoon for a four-day visit that includes tea with the Queen at Windsor Palace, a black-tie dinner at Winston Churchill's birthplace and a few rounds of golf in Scotland.

"She's looking forward to sitting down with the president and talking him through the white paper", May's spokesman of the government's proposals and when asked about Trump's interview with the Sun.

'I would say Brexit is Brexit, ' he told reporters. May is already believed to be dangerously close to a vote of no confidence by her party.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who arrived in Britain on Thursday at the start of a working visit, said before the white paper's publication he was not sure May's approach was what Britain voted for in the 2016 referendum. "As he said in his interview with the Sun she "is a very good person" and he "never said anything bad about her", she said.

"I did give, Theresa, who I like - I did give her my views on what she should do and how she should negotiate, and she didn't follow those views", Mr. Trump told the Sun.

He had used a Thursday morning press conference in Brussels to attack the Prime Minister's Brexit plan and highlight Cabinet divisions.

United Kingdom officials in Brussels say they have no plans to bring forward new proposals on the border, having proposed a solution to it last month.

In a possible bid to win over such opinions, the government said that wherever the United Kingdom participates in an EU agency, it will respect the remit of the Court of Justice of the European Union. "I think he's got what it takes", he added.

Without the backing of her own ranks and with a working majority of just 13, the prime minister will need to rely on opposition parties, Politico reported.

"So that I think will be the real challenge for the negotiating teams over the summer", he added.

Foreign Minister Boris Johnson also resigned citing his disappointment with the proposals, which he said "stick in the throat".

A demonstration supporting Mr. Trump is also scheduled to take place in London on Saturday.

Britain would end free movement of people from the European Union, and parliament would decide on any future immigration plans but would seek reciprocal "mobility arrangements" with the bloc.

Addressing the 100-strong group the Prime Minister said there was an "unprecedented" opportunity to do a deal that boosted jobs and growth in both countries.

"You see, what's going on throughout the world with immigration..."
