Trump attacks London mayor over terrorism: 'He has done a awful job'

  • Mrs May was the first foreign leader to visit the US president in January 2017

Both of those accords were the result of years of painstaking diplomacy by European leaders - and Trump unilaterally trashed them.

"We just hope enough people can see the video and can sing a bit of it - that would be lovely".

But Trump will still meet with the Queen at Windsor Castle on Friday.

In a statement ahead of Trump's arrival, she said the visit would focus on trade and strengthening defence and security ties, saying there was no stronger alliance than Britain's "special relationship with the United States".

Before the Sun interview was published, Ms May invoked Winston Churchill as she addressed Mr Trump and business leaders at a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, the grand 18th-century country house which was the British World War II leader's birthplace.

Mr Trump's intervention comes at the end of a tumultuous few days for Ms May.

"At no point did president Trump, neither in bilateral meetings nor in multilateral ones, say he would pull out of Nato", Macron said. She said they will discuss security and defense, an aspect of the relationship that is causing anxiety for some British politicians.

Adding that it seemed as if the United Kingdom was "getting at least partially involved back with the European Union".

In an interview with The Sun, he shoots down the chances of a trade deal with the United States if she sticks to her carefully crafted compromise Brexit plan.

In extraordinary comments on British politics, Trump also said former foreign minister Boris Johnson, who resigned this week over the Brexit plan and is seen as a potential challenger to May, would make "a great prime minister".

China is expected to match the move with a 25 percent levy on USA goods to the same value on the same day. And most U.S. cars sold in China are made at plants located in China, so they're immune to tariffs.

"This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership". "I'm not sure that's what they voted for", Trump said on Thursday.

Outside the mansion, near Oxford to the northwest of London, a couple of thousand demonstrators lined the road and booed Trump's arrival, one of over 100 protests police expect to take place during his four-day trip.

Neither Trump nor North Atlantic Treaty Organisation offered specifics on what Trump said he had achieved. A 19-foot-tall orange balloon, shaped to look like a baby version of President Trump, will be flown in central London.

But besides that, the USA president is set to avoid much of the mass protests as most of his official engagements have been planned outside London.

It has also complained that 300 officers working during the visit will have to sleep on camp beds in a gymnasium that has no hot water and restricted access to hot food.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, published on Friday morning, Mr Trump said Ms May's plans for a business-friendly Brexit would leave it too close to the European Union to allow a new trans-Atlantic trade deal to be struck.

Mr Trump will spend the weekend in Scotland where he has two golf courses and plans to play at least once.

He was met at Stansted Airport by dignitaries including International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and the USA ambassador Woody Johnson.

He is due to leave Britain on Sunday for talks in Helsinki the following day with Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose government stands accused by May's of unleashing a lethal nerve agent in the city of Salisbury.
