London protests against Trump shouldn't be taken seriously: Steve Hilton

London protests against Trump shouldn't be taken seriously: Steve Hilton

May was hosting Trump at a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Britain's World War II Prime Minister Winston Churchill - the leader who coined the term "special relationship" for the trans-Atlantic bond.

Before his meeting with May, Trump had already dismayed her team by breaching diplomatic protocol and criticizing her handling of Brexit negotiations in his interview with the Sun.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump's interview shows he really does like May. I am assuming that his mum told him that when you go to someone's house you do not insult the host.

The timing of the comments added to the awkwardness.

Sterling came under pressure on Friday following comments by Donald Trump that a post-Brexit trade deal between Britain and the U.S. could be dead. "He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the United Kingdom".

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II escorts US President Donald Trump and US First Lady Melania Trump into Windsor Castle after inspecting troops at Windsor Castle in Windsor, west of London, on the second day of Trump's United Kingdom visit.

On Boris Johnson, Trump said again he thought the former foreign secretary would make a great prime minister.

Speaking alongside Prime Minister Theresa May at Chequers on Friday, the president said he had forecast the outcome of the vote when he visited Scotland to officially reopen his Turnberry golf resort in 2016.

In February, Mueller charged 13 Russians and three Russian companies in an elaborate conspiracy to interfere in the election. But with Mueller still investigating, it's not known whether further indictments are taking shape or will.

He added: "I would have done it much differently". I get along with her very nicely.

"She should negotiate the best way she knows how. But it is too bad what is going on".

"Unfortunately a story was done which was generally fine but didn't put in what I said about the PM". He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me. "I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly, whatever they work out". The comments infuriated some of May's Conservative Party colleagues, including one who tweeted, "Where are your manners, Mr. President?" and another who chided Trump for diminishing "the standing of the great country he is meant to lead". "That's why I and tens of thousands of others will be out protesting, to stand up to his poisonous politics".

"I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad", he said. "I think you are losing your culture".

"Today we're talking trade, we're talking military, we just moved some incredible anti terrorism things.The relationship is very, very strong", Trump told reporters. But I told her how to do it.

"Maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route [on Brexit], so I don't know if that's what they voted for", he told a press conference after the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

In the interview, Trump was especially critical of May's handing of the UK's upcoming exit from the European Union.
