The comments come after May suffered a series of resignations from her Cabinet after she signalled that Britain was heading for a softer form of Brexit with closer ties to the European Union than previously expected.

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.

Labour Party foreign affairs spokeswoman Emily Thornberry told ITV's Good Morning Britain on Friday that it was "extraordinarily rude of Donald Trump to behave like this".

Trump chastised May for ignoring his advice on Brexit and not making a credible threat to walk away from talks.

"The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on", he said.

She said: "I think he means to put America first and I think he's been doing that and he's been very consistent with his campaign promises".

Trump is due to have lunch with May on Friday. Her office had no immediate reaction to his remarks, beyond referring back to her speech.

May had aimed to leverage the prize of a future trade deal with the United States in an effort gain support for her post-Brexit plans. "We must show Trump and the Tories that we can and we will defeat the politics of division".

Mr Trump, who arrived in Britain last night, told The Sun newspaper that the planned protests in London and other British cities made him feel unwelcome, so he was avoiding the capital as much as possible.

In an extraordinary interview with a British newspaper, Mr Trump said that the PM's plans for a soft Brexit would end any hopes of a trade deal with the United States and suggested that former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who quit her cabinet earlier this week, would be a better leader than Mrs May.

Donald Trump says May's Brexit plan is not what British people voted for.

Outside the mansion, near Oxford to the northwest of London, a couple of thousand demonstrators lined the road and booed Trump's arrival.
