Amid Protests, Trump Meeting with Theresa May After Criticizing Her over Brexit

Donald Trump UK visit- Trump and Theresa May

In an interview with the Sun published late yesterday, as he dined with May, Trump said her proposal to execute a so-called "soft Brexit", maintaining ties with the European Union, was wrong and would torpedo a USA trade deal.

The two leaders spoke after meeting at Chequers, the prime minister's country estate.

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.

Ms May and Mr Trump both spoke of the importance of the "special relationship" between their two countries, something that Brexit supporters hope will reap benefits when Britain leaves the European Union, allowing it to forge closer trade ties with the world's biggest economy.

One of the organisers behind "Baby Trump", Kevin Smith, said it was devised by a group of friends who got together in a pub.

"Let's not forget that the hope of a quick trade deal with the United States was a significant factor in Theresa May's decision to invite Trump in the first place".

In an interview with British tabloid The Sun, Trump said the planned protests made him feel unwelcome, prompting him to avoid the capital.

He also said the prime minister has ignored his advice on Brexit negotiations, explaining: "I would have done it differently".

However, he later said Ms May was doing a "fantastic job". But I'm different than other people.

Asked about that interview, Trump said he did not criticize the prime minister and was gushing in his praise of his host, saying she was tough and capable.

Khan told BBC Radio Friday, "The idea that you can blame (a rise in crime) on immigration from Africa is I think preposterous and we should call him out when he does so". "I have a lot of respect for the prime minister". And I said tremendous things.

"I was very saddened to see he was leaving government and I hope he goes back in at some point. They are very special people, it's a very special country and as I said, I have a relationship because my mother was born in Scotland".

"I used to love London as a city", Trump told The Sun newspaper.

"I'm quite clear that both the United Kingdom and the U.S. have a special relationship that means we stand shoulder to shoulder at times of adversity", the Labour mayor said. "I think you are losing your culture".

"Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place", Trump said.

"I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the disgusting things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in". "You have a mayor who has done a bad job in London".

A pro-Trump demonstration in London has been scheduled for Saturday.

"I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important".

Recalling that visit during the press conference on Friday, he said there had been "an unbelievably large number of reporters there", adding: "I guess everybody was there because of Brexit".
