The Independent said Trump's statement came after thousands took to the streets on the second day of the state visit. "So much of it is Fake News, I hate to say it", attacked the US President again, the media.

Labour and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn criticised Trump's press remarks and accused "Tory leadership contenders and Farage" of "lining up for the No Deal disaster capitalism plans they have", adding that Britain's "NHS is not for sale".

Not only did the avid Trump supporter capture the moment on camera, in her ordeal to fight the protest, she managed to hurt herself in the process as she tried to harm the balloon using a pair of scissors.

Some people responded to the fact that ITV News had posted the woman's words, "When you act like that, you act like Donald Trump" in its post. "I certainly would have no problem with it", Trump said.

"I didn't think it was appropriate to meet him, but I would".

Although Corbyn did not mention Trump by name, it was made clear by the organisers that the message was directed at him.

The president's trip included a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II, a state dinner at Buckingham Palace and another dinner hosted by President Trump and first lady Melania Trump for Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles in the official residence of the United States ambassador to the United Kingdom.

"I am interested in finding out how it will happen".

He was further quoted as telling The Sun that he thought Meghan - the US-born actress who married Prince Harry past year and became the Duchess of Sussex - was "nasty" for saying in 2016 that she would move to Canada if Trump became president.

Trump suggested that May should not step down, but also praised Boris Johnson, the lawmaker who is vying to be May's replacement as the leader of the Conservative Party.

Trump told ITV that he was misunderstood.

In contrast to his earlier criticism of May's handling of Brexit, Trump granted that the PM was "probably a better negotiator than I am" and that maybe she should "stick around" while talks continued. I said she was nasty about me. "I would have sued and settled, maybe, but you never know". "She's doing a good job".
