Trump sends political shockwave through United Kingdom with interview on Brexit, protests

13 July 2018

"I told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me...

Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future", she said.

Some cited "job restrictions" while another said he was wary of the press. Instead, he said, May went "the opposite way", and the results have been "very unfortunate".

President Donald Trump directly criticized Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy, saying it had probably killed off hope of a U.S.

Johnson has been a repeated defender of Trump and the president suggested earlier this week that he may meet with the former foreign secretary during his trip, despite his resignation.

About 150 guests are understood to have agreed to attend the dinner at Blenheim Palace, including cabinet members and business leaders.

He also told the tabloid that he'd shared advice with May during Britain's negotiations with the European Union and she ignored it.

John Rees of the Stop the War group said in reference to Trump: "He's a wrecking ball for race relations, he's a wrecking ball for prosperity, he's a wrecking ball for women's rights, he's a wrecking ball for any peace and justice in this world and we have to stop him".

"I have a lot of respect for Boris". I think she is a nice person. He added, "I think he is a great representative for your country".

On Saturday, Trump supporters will rally near the United States embassy in Nine Elms, south London, for an event titled "Welcoming Trump to Britain Rally - Make Britain Great Again", at which a number of right-wing figures are scheduled to speak.

"I would have done it much differently, ' Trump said".

Despite not being an official state visit, the Government is desperate to ensure the USA leader feels he is being treated with the appropriate level of pomp and ceremony.

Trump's itinerary includes meeting with May, tea with the Queen, along with other diplomats.

And even on day one, protestors were out in their droves at his highly secure residence in Regent's Park.

And he made clear that he did not approve of the softer stance the PM has been advocating despite fury from many Tory MPs.

Trump is set to join May later on Friday at a display of joint US-UK military might at an undisclosed location before both leaders head to Chequers, the British prime minister's country retreat in Buckinghamshire, for in-depth bilateral discussions. The EU better be careful. "I warned them. Immigration is taking over Europe".

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.

Extra security is in place to police the protests.

While the White House had previously denied the president's schedule in London was meant to keep him away from the protests, Trump admitted as much in an interview with the British-owned tabloid "The Sun".

Dick said: "We will keep him safe". The 20-foot high blimp depicts the USA leader as an angry infant wearing a nappy and clutching a mobile phone.

As Trump is expected to discuss a possible post-Brexit trade deal and other worldwide issues with May, organizers of Friday's demonstrations say there is no shortage of issues that will inspire mass numbers of people to attend.
