Theresa May Says Trump Advised Her to Sue the EU

But the US President seemed to be visibly annoyed when he was asked by a reporter if he regretted making remarks about British Prime Minister Theresa May and her Brexit policy in an explosive interview.

In the incendiary interview, with the Sun newspaper, the USA leader criticised Mrs May's handling of Brexit negotiations, hailed Boris Johnson - who quit the cabinet earlier this week - as a future and "great Prime Minister" and said there was too much immigration in Europe.

She said that any Commons revolts by pro and anti-EU MPs would risk undermining any chances of a deal with Brussels.

Parakilas said: "Both May and Trump tried to put a good face on at the press conference but we are going to continue to see. other issues which will divide the two again".

On Brexit, he said: 'I would have done it much differently.

"Whatever you do is OK with us, just make sure we can trade together". "I gave her a suggestion, not advice".

However, he later said Ms May was doing a "fantastic job".

A spokeswoman for the Institute of Directors said: "The prospect of a trade deal with the U.S. is attractive to business, so the President's more optimistic comments are welcome".

On the prospects of a trade deal collapsing, he added: "I think it's worse for United Kingdom than it is for us because we're doing very well, and we're doing very well at trade, and we're doing incredibly well overall, and we're having the best numbers we've ever had as a country -best employment numbers, best GDP numbers".

Mr. Trump's first official visit to Britain this week came ahead of a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday.

The president later travelled to Windsor Castle for tea with Queen Elizabeth.

Trump arrived at his privately-owned Turnberry golf resort in Scotland earlier today and he expected to play a round or two during his stay there.

Arriving straight from a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit that was predictably contentious, the United States president has been greeted with massive protests on his first trip to London since taking office.
