The UK's white paper - key points for expatriates

Dylan Martinez Trump visit to UK begins on awkward note

Activists inflate a giant balloon depicting US President Donald Trump as an orange baby in north London on July 10, 2018 ahead of a demonstration in London to coincide with the visit of the US president.

However, his trip is set to be overshadowed by news that a US federal grand jury has indicted 12 military intelligence officers on charges of hacking the computer networks of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party.

A poll on Thursday conducted by YouGov for ITV Tonight showed that only 22 percent of the British public have confidence in May's ability to negotiate with Trump, while 69 percent did not have confidence in her.

"I think it's fine", he said.

Trump also said that if May's Brexit plans included sticking to European Union rules it could prevent a US-UK trade deal.

He said "the deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on".

Trump met with British Prime Minister Theresa May at her country residence, Chequers, on Friday morning.

However, eurosceptic MP Jacob Rees-Mogg said Mr Trump's remarks on trade were a "perfectly reasonable thing for an American president to say". "I read reports where that won't be possible but I believe that after speaking with the Prime Minister's people and representatives and trade experts it will absolutely be possible". "If the strategy at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was to shore up more spending in some ways, the president didn't want to take the win that he had because actually North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have been increasing spending on their own defense, which they haven't yet hit the deadline for in 2024". You know, he undermined the prime minister, you could say, but will he really change the political landscape when it comes to the nearly existential question of how the United Kingdom exits the European Union.

Twitter purge: Don't be surprised if you lose followers
A Twitter spokesperson told Newsweek the platform will see a drop in around six percent of followers in the coming days. A Twitter crackdown on "locked" accounts has lead to some of its most high profile users losing millions of followers.

"There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the USA and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead".

During the hour-long press conference, Trump went out of his way to praise May, and admitted he had apologised to her for The Sun's front page today. May looked toward him after he declined to answer.

Donald Trump and Theresa May watch a military performance by the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards.

Despite Trump's criticism - which pounded the front pages of almost every British newspaper - he and May carried on with their regularly scheduled meetings on Friday.

May was the first head of government to officially meet Trump as president, in January 2017.

However, Trump ruled out May pursuing "no deal" - a move favoured by hard Brexiteers - saying there was no way the Prime Minister could walk away from the Brussels talks without an agreement.

The White House attempted to mollify Trump's criticism, with White House press secretary Sarah Sanders releasing a statement insisting that "the President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much". "I know he loves the east coast, he loves this property more than maybe anywhere else in the world, so I certainly hope he can get out here".
