In Fiery Interview With British Tabloid, Trump Criticizes Prime Minister, London Mayor

Only hours after arriving, Trump made the prime minister's life even more hard, with scathing criticism of her in a newspaper interview.

Trump praised Johnson, and said he would make a "great prime minister".

After Trump's interview was published, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the president "likes and respects Prime Minister May very much", adding that he had "never said anything bad about her".

Trump has also frequently angered British politicians and has been involved in social media spats with London's Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan who Trump said had "done a very bad job on terrorism". May said the U.S. was "keen" to do a deal with the United Kingdom, adding: "We will do a trade deal with them and with others around the rest of the world".

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.

Farage, a member of European Parliament and former leader of the U.K. Independence Party, said Trump chose to "intervene" for two reasons: he believes in Brexit and he feels the US has been let down. "Because when I saw her this morning I said I want to apologize 'I want to apologize because, I said such good things about you.' She said, 'don't worry, it was only the press.' I thought that was very professional".

For those incensed by Trump's say in the matter, it is worth noting that his predecessor was no less terse in warning, not just the Cameron government, but the British people, that leaving the European Union would banish Britain to the end of any trade agreement queue.

Trump, whose wife is a European immigrant to the United States, reiterated his claim that immigration - legal or otherwise, he did not say - is hurting Europe. "By taking on many countries at the same time with behaviour considered unacceptable beyond his own base of fans, Trump may bring others closer together rather than dividing them".

Speaking at his formal unveiling at the City Football Academy, Mahrez said: "It's a club who wants to win this type of trophy". We didn't think we were going to lose but we did. "They have everything to try to win the Champions League".

Trump was meandering, combative and inaccurate in many of his answers - attacking "fake news" CNN, referencing his uncle "John Trump at MIT" to crow about his understanding of nuclear weapons and repeatedly lampooning President Barack Obama, his predecessor.

"Thank you very much for saying that". "And you lost some other very good people", he continued.

Throngs of protesters began marching from outside the BBC at central London's Portland Place, slamming the President for his attitude and behavior toward women and controversial policies, including the Muslim travel ban and the separation of migrant children from their families at the United States border, organizers of the "Bring the Noise" protest said.

May, for her part, praised the strength of the U.S. -U.K. bond.

Asked earlier in the day whether he regrets his interview with British tabloid The Sun, Trump very visibly shook his head and rolled his eyes, turning to his aides with a look that showed his displeasure with the question. May, who was already reeling from a backlash within her Conservative Party caucus over a new Brexit plan she announced last week that included a customs arrangement with the EU. And his approach has been to say what Donald Trump says and does is unacceptable, and it doesn't reflect the values of London.

Among them was Emily Bryce, who proudly carried a homemade banner written in Gaelic, in recognition of Trump's Highland roots.

Mrs. Trump and the president were reuniting later Friday for a return trip into the country for a social visit and tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

The sting was greater for the fact that May was using the dinner to pitch her case for a separate trade arrangement. You know, it's interesting because I am a people person. "That's good", Trump said. "I don't think we see it as rude".
