Trump's London stay met by protesters

Donald Trump stepping off Air Force One

"Bad stuff", she wrote.Trump shocked British media and many in the USA when he openly attacked May's plan for Brexit during his Thursday interview with The Sun, before going further to lament that "millions" of immigrants were forever altering Europe's cultural makeup."I would have done it much differently", Trump said of May's Brexit plan.

Trump had said that May's plan would "probably kill the deal" as it would mean the United States "would be dealing with the European Union" instead of the UK.

Before his meeting with May, Trump had already dismayed her team by breaching diplomatic protocol and criticizing her handling of Brexit negotiations in his interview with the Sun.

"I didn't criticise the PM", Trump said at a press conference at the prime minister's official retreat in Chequers on Friday afternoon.

Thousands of protesters marched in London on Friday against Donald Trump's visit to Britain, in what was shaping up to be one of the largest demonstrations seen anywhere outside the US against the sitting president.

The president revealed that he knows about the mocking 20-foot "Trump Baby" blimp that flew over Parliament Square on Thursday. "The U.S. has always stood by our side as a beacon for tolerance, openness and respect", he said in a statement on Thursday.

Rosenstein: Trump 'fully aware' of Russian indictments
It comes days before Mr Trump's Helsinki meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, casting a major shadow over the encounter. President Donald Trump's United Kingdom visit, and just hours after he once again called the investigation a "witch hunt".

Speaking to TIME about Trump's comments at the launch of the blimp on Friday morning, one of the activists responsible said: "Great".

Journalist Tom Newton Dunn, Trump's interviewer, said the president seemed "sensitive" about the inflatable "Trump baby" being flown over London and its accompanying protests, set for Friday.

That's right, folks, the only relationship advice that matters right now is that you have to find someone who looks at you the way Theresa May looks at Trump.

The comments, made in an interview with tabloid newspaper The Sun, were published Thursday night, just as Trump and May were wrapping up dinner after a red-carpet reception at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire.

But he also told the newspaper that May is "a very good person", and that he "never said anything bad about her".

Trump had words of praise, however, for former British Foreign Minister Johnson who resigned earlier this week over the soft Brexit strategy, saying Johnson would "make a great prime minister". Hundreds of protesters descended on the castle to voice their opposition to the president's visit.

The US leader had claimed he doubted a US-UK trade deal would happen because of Theresa May's Brexit plans. Trump shrugged off the planned protests, telling reporters "they like me a lot in the U.K".

"All of you remember", he said to reporters.

"I'm not going to rise to President Trump's views".

While his trip was not a full state visit, he has been given red carpet treatment and is scheduled to have tea later with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, where her grandson Prince Harry married USA actress Meghan Markle in May.

During the press conference, Mr Trump - who regularly accuses the United States media of "fake news" over its coverage of him - also clashed with a reporter from the American NBC network, describing it as "possibly worse than CNN".

The press conference comes as thousands of people protest in London against his visit.
