In the interview with the British tabloid, Trump said May's decision to opt for a "soft Brexit" undermined the UK's chances to strike a comprehensive trade deal with the USA and that the prime minister ignored his advice on how to negotiate with the EU.

In an interview with the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid, Trump became the latest critic of May's Brexit plans, which foresee a closer relationship with the European Union (EU) after Britain leaves the 28-member economic bloc next year, than many hard-Brexit supporters are demanding. "Unfortunately that was a story that was done which was, you know, generally fine, but it didn't put in what I said about the Prime Minister, and I said tremendous things", Trump added. But I told her how to do it. I am not sure. However, under the blue skies of the Chequers' garden, he said their relationship was "the highest level of special".

But, the pound recovered the day's losses after Trump and May gave a press conference at Chequers and both said a trade deal between each other's countries was on the table.

"The United States looks forward to finalizing a great bilateral trade deal" with the U.K., Trump said.

Some lawmakers in her deeply divided Conservative Party have cast May's "business-friendly" Brexit plan as a betrayal that would leave Britain too close to the European Union and warned that she might face a leadership challenge.

At a press conference on Friday, Trump dismissed The Sun newspaper as an example of "fake news", hours after giving an exclusive interview to the same paper for its Friday cover story.

She was responding to a question about whether her latest Brexit proposal - which includes a "common rulebook" with the European Union - would make it impossible for the United Kingdom to make its own trade deals.

In the interview, Trump described Johnson as "a very talented guy", adding: "I like him a lot". "I could fully understand why she thought it was a little bit tough".

While he spoke highly of Johnson, he also heaped praise on May, calling her an "incredible woman" who is "doing a fantastic job".

Speaking about the prime minister's strategy, President Trump said, "I would have done it much differently".

In central London, thousands of people have started to gather to protest Trump's visit. It was one of the more than 100 demonstrations planned across the country during his four-day stay. Trump and first lady Melania Trump are also scheduled to have tea with Queen Elizabeth II on Friday afternoon, his first visit with the British head of state. Star-Spangled Banner was then played and the Queen guided the president on a review of the honour guard in the castle courtyard. Trump and his wife spent nearly an hour with the 92-year-old monarch, staying 17 minutes after their expected departure time.

He went on to say that London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who authorised protesters to raise a giant balloon showing a nappy-wearing Mr Trump next to the British parliament on Friday, was doing a "terrible job" in fighting crime.
