United Kingdom pound falls, United Kingdom politicians reel after Trump broadside

Recalling that visit during the press conference on Friday, he said there had been "an unbelievably large number of reporters there", adding: "I guess everybody was there because of Brexit".

He added, "I said, 'Brexit will happen.' The vote is going to go positive, because people don't want to be faced with the terrible immigration problems that they are being faced with in other countries".

The two leaders said they'd complete a trade deal between their countries as soon as the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, after Trump told the Sun newspaper in an interview published Thursday that an accord might not be possible because of her decision to maintain ties with the EU.

But on Friday Trump claimed that The Sun didn't include all his "tremendous" comments about May and explained his about-face by hinting that he had changed his mind on his criticism since speaking with May.


She repeated that scene again on Thursday in the courtyard of Blenheim Palace near Oxford, where the PM hosted Trump and his wife Melania for a black-tie dinner.

A high metal fence has been erected around the USA ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night and the embassy has sent out an alert warning Americans in London to keep a low profile in case protests turn violent.

He ignited a long-running feud with the London Mayor, who refused to stop the Trump baby from flying in London, accusing him of doing a "very bad job on terrorism". "I was opening Turnberry the day before Brexit".

Opponents of US President Donald Trump inflated a 6-meter (20-foot) blimp of the US leader as an orange, diaper-wearing baby carrying cellphone next to British parliament on Friday. "He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me", Trump said. Although Trump has said this practice will be stopped, thousands of children remain separated from their parents and face great difficulty locating their relatives. "As he said in his interview with The Sun she "is a very good person" and he 'never said anything bad about her.' He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person". I am just saying I think he would be a great Prime Minister.


Trump claimed that he didn't criticize May in his interview with The Sun, and he even called the report "fake news". "As he said in his interview with the Sun she "is a very good person" and he 'never said anything bad about her.' He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person".

"Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place". The president "is not avoiding anything" relying on helicopters, U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson said, rather he is "trying to get as impactful a trip as he can get within a 24-hour period". Scottish police, however, said that the balloon could not fly over the Turnberry golf club Trump owns on the west coast of the country.

"I would actually say that she probably went the opposite way". You're going to have, I think, many other cases where they want to take their borders back, their monetary (policy) back, take a lot of things back.

"If he actually says these things standing next to her [at the press conference], then basically she's toast in terms of the plans that she now has", he said, adding that May is already under "enormous pressure" from her partymates, who are against her deal with the EU.
