Without the backing of her own ranks and with a working majority of just 13, the prime minister will need to rely on opposition parties, Politico reported.

Pres. Trump denies interview with The Sun was critical of Prime Minister Theresa May.

Donald Trump has warned Theresa May's Brexit plan will "kill" any future US trade deal in bombshell comments as the President met the British prime minister in the United Kingdom. Trump said the discussion "was really something".

The president also hit out at immigration into Europe, linking it with crime.

Keen added: "Other than a facilitated customs arrangement, I suspect that there will be other areas where there will be differences of opinion between the U.K. and E.U. Notwithstanding the above, it is the most comprehensive and cogent proposal put forward by the U.K. Government to date and is a useful basis for negotiation with the E.U".

Daniel Dale, a journalist with the Toronto Star who collates instances of the President not telling the truth, said it was the fifth time Trump lied about predicting Brexit.

"The EU is in an extremely strong negotiating position and we will end up, quite unbelievably, with an even worse deal than that set out in this white paper".

He said private security guards would join officers on some of the cordons from next week, as the investigation continued. Sturgess' partner Charlie Rowley, 45, remains in a critical condition but has regained consciousness.

Asked earlier in the day whether he regrets his interview with British tabloid The Sun, Trump very visibly shook his head and rolled his eyes, turning to his aides with a look that showed his displeasure with the question.

"The relationship between our two nations is indispensable to the cause of justice and peace", Trump said. "If they don't make the right deal, she might very well do what I suggested that she might want to do", he said.

"I would have done it much differently".

"I would say Brexit is Brexit", Mr Trump said on Thursday at a news conference at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

Despite the resignation of two pro-Brexit Cabinet ministers and a growing rebellion from within her own party, Mrs May published a 98-page "white paper" setting out in detail the deep trading partnership Britain wants with the EU.

On Friday he rephrased his account, saying that he had given "a suggestion" to May over Brexit, not advice.

"I predicted Brexit. I was cutting a ribbon for the opening of Turnberry - you know they totally did a whole renovation, it is handsome - the day before the Brexit vote", Trump said.

No 10 sent the Foreign Office minister Sir Alan Duncan out to bat on the airwaves, where he insisted the interview had not been damaging and the visit would "most definitely" be a success.

Trump told the Sun newspaper he was avoiding the capital as much as possible.

"I think it's hilarious".

May insists the plan will protect trade with the European Union while giving Britain the freedom to strike its own deals with other countries like the US.

Trump will later Friday take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, before spending the weekend in Scotland on a private visit that will likely take in 18 holes at one of the property magnate's golf courses, where more protesters await him.
