However as he arrived for a working lunch with the British prime minister he said they had "probably never developed a better relationship" than during last night's dinner at Blenheim Palace.

British Parliament member Kate Hoey on President Trump's comments about British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan. I think she is a nice person.

In the interview, Trump said that Theresa May had ignored his advice on Brexit.

The more conciliatory tone drove the pound back to the levels where it had started the day, at about $1.32.

A trade deal with the USA is supposed to be the big prize of Brexit, with its potential to largely compensate the economic loss that would ensue by exiting the European single market.

If the United Kingdom remains too tethered to the 27 remaining European Union countries, it could hinder their trade deals with other nations, she warned.

During the press conference, Mr Trump - who regularly accuses the United States media of "fake news" over its coverage of him - also clashed with a reporter from the American NBC network, describing it as "possibly worse than CNN".

But he said May and her representatives have since reassured him that will still be possible.

Prime Minister May said they had discussed plans for an "ambitious" trade agreement.

This week's release of a white paper with the blueprint for how the British plan to exit the European Union, two years after the country voted to do so, spurred major political resignations and furor from President Trump.

Meanwhile tens of thousands of demonstrators descend on Central London to protest the president's visit.

In the interview, Trump described Johnson as "a very talented guy", adding: "I like him a lot".

"I know you'll ask, 'Will we be talking about meddling?' And I will absolutely bring that up", Trump said.

During opening remarks ahead of the joint news conference with May, Trump said he is "OK with" however the British decide to carry out Brexit, despite trashing May's "soft Brexit" blueprint in The Sun.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he did not feel Britain should be "rolling out the red carpet" to Mr Trump.

In an interview published just hours before the two leaders held talks, Trump chided the "very unfortunate" results of the prime minister's strategy for negotiating Britain's departure from the European Union.

He added: "I didn't think they put it in, but that's all right".

"The message we came here to give today is that Trump is not welcome in Britain", said shopkeeper Grish Gregoran, 58, who took the day off to attend.

Towering over the queen, Mr Trump and the monarch shared a few interactions as they reviewed troops at the royal castle in Windsor.

"If Trump truly wanted to emulate Churchill, he would celebrate the peace and prosperity of Europe and seek to strengthen rather than destroy trans-Atlantic ties", said Amanda Sloat, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington and a former State Department official in the Obama administration.
