GETTYDonald Trump comes to Britain later today

US first lady Melania Trump, President Trump, British Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip May watch a live military performance ahead of a dinner in Oxfordshire, U.K., on Thursday.

Trump's comments come after an explosive interview the president conducted with The Sun newspaper, in which he publicly criticised the prime minister's Brexit strategy and suggested it would kill any chance of a US-UK trade deal.

"Another potential ally she lost is President Trump who said the way that May is dealing with the Brexit process is "unfortunate" and "will probably kill" any chance of a bilateral deal between the USA and the UK". He has done a bad job."Opposition lawmaker Emily Thornberry hit out at Trump's comments, telling LBC radio: "It's Islamophobia and it is racist".

A much-ballyhooed balloon of Trump as a snarling baby in diapers flew over the houses of Parliament for a couple of hours, with hundreds of people cheering as it floated upward and organizers hoping to bring it to other stops on Trump's tour of Britain, especially Turnberry in Scotland, where he will play golf at his resort Saturday.

"I'm confident it will happen, and the trade between our two countries is so important that it will be in our mutual interests to have a trade deal between the U.S. and the UK".

Trump had no qualms about blasting May's plan for how the UK should leave the European Union, and he even took it a step further by appearing to threaten US-UK trade deals based on her Brexit approach.

But 51% again say that the USA president is untrustworthy to negotiate a trade deal with, including 38% who say he is "very untrustworthy".

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, Trump slammed May's plans for Brexit and praised her political rival Boris Johnson.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders later told reporters Trump was "thankful for the wonderful welcome" he received in Britain. "He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me", Trump said. "I don't think so", Trump said.

According to the pharmaceutical company, the state obtained their drug illegally, and Alvogen wants that drug returned to them. Stocks of the drugs commonly used in executions have been dwindling as their producers have refused to supply them to prisons.

Calling her a "tremendous woman", Trump said "she has really never made a mistake".

"It's a very odd thing to do, to come on a visit to another country, to meet that country's prime minister, and then announce that you would like to see as her successor a person who's just resigned from her government", he said. "I believe after speaking with the prime minister's people and trade experts a deal will be possible". "I think you are losing your culture". "You go through certain areas that didn't exist ten or 15 years ago".

During the launch of the blimp, Sky News interviewed Mayor Khan questioning whether the blimp was an appropriate form of protest. Khan, London's first Muslim mayor, has been targeted by the president repeatedly on Twitter.

Khan earlier urged Londoners to keep Friday's main protest "peaceful and good-spirited", saying the message went broader than Trump.

Trump said that immigration has been "a very negative thing for Europe" while May responded that "the United Kingdom has a proud history of welcoming people fleeing persecution" and "immigration has been good for the U.K".

As protests swarm across the country and a giant balloon depicting Mr Trump as a baby flies over London, this highly contentious visit is likely to determine US-UK relations going forward.

"I used to love London as a city", Trump said. I haven't been there in a long time.

"They all showed up on the 9th hole, overlooking the ocean, and I said what's going on, and all they wanted to talk about was Brexit".
