Trump and May give joint press conference

Trump and May give joint press conference

Trump's interview with the British tabloid "The Sun" - in which he knocked May's "soft Brexit" compromise and boosted a rival within her own party - published Thursday and dealt a stunning diplomatic affront for a visiting United States president.

Fresh from a contentious meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels in which he demanded member nations contribute more for their collective defense, Trump made a number of incendiary remarks to the British tabloid that are sure to provide fodder for his critics in the United Kingdom and Europe. He has done a awful job.

Trump, who has linked his own election to the June 2016 referendum in which a slim majority of British voters supported leaving the European Union, complained, "The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on". I think he's got what it takes, Trump told the Sun. I would actually say that she probably went the opposite way.

He said that May's new, softer approach to Brexit - which would leave Britain sticking to a "common rulebook" with Brussels on goods - would kill off the chances of a much sought-after USA -U.K. trade deal.

Last year, activists began circulating a petition to block a state visit from Trump that eventually made its way to the floor of Parliament.

Trump, this week, has praised Johnson, and called him his "friend".

Mr Trump has trashed the PM's Brexit policy and her own handling of the crunch negotiations in a remarkable interview with The Sun.

He had also been sentenced by the accountability court to one year in prison on charges of abetment in the Avenfield case. Abbasi told the media, "The court has sentenced Sharif to 10 years of imprisonment and fined him 8 million pounds".


Ms Thornberry added: 'I don't trust her to stand up for our country when it comes to President Trump. I am just saying I think he would be a great Prime Minister.

Trump spoke out against the balloon and against London mayor Sadiq Khan, who approved its launch. On Friday morning, he was taken to a military exercise in an attempt to show that Britain is tough on terrorism, followed by an afternoon meeting at Checkers.

He complained that the soft Brexit plan was a contentious move against the US because the European Union "is very bad to the United States on trade".

"We are committed to dialogue, including of course with those we strongly disagree with, and in government, we would find a way to work with his administration while also standing up for our values", he said, according to BBC News.

However, as the BBC noted, the previous month showed eight homicides in London compared with 18 in NY.

Because of the wave of immigration, Trump said, Europe is "losing [its] culture".

U.S. President Donald Trump kicked off his visit to the U.K.by knifing his host, Prime Minister Theresa May, in the front.

Asked if the ex-minister could be in No. 10 one day, he replied: "Well I am not pitting one against the other". The president is expected to avoid areas where major demonstrations are planned in protest at his visit.

"I used to love London as a city", Trump said.

"The sense of betrayal in this country will be huge, and I very much hope that she's out of office before too long", Farage said.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London", he said.

Trump denied he criticized May in the interview, which he said was recorded.

"But having a special relationship means that we expect the highest standards from each other, and it also means speaking out when we think the values we hold dear are under threat", he said. "And the key thing is it should be done in a peaceful manner, it should be good-spirited".
