"Trump even mentioned because of that Sun "fake news" article as he called it, he apologized to Teresa May and said so at the press conference and she took it very lightly and said, 'oh, it's the press, "' DeLay said. After a black-tie dinner 60 miles (100 kilometres) outside London, he spent Thursday night at the USA ambassador's residence in Regents Park, then flew by helicopter to May's country retreat, Chequers, for his meeting with the prime minister, followed by another flight to Windsor Palace for tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

"Whatever you do is OK with me", Trump said.

Trump said that the "special relationship" - "the highest level of special" - between the two countries is "a bond that is like no other". "Whatever you're going to do is OK with us just make sure we can trade together-that's all that matters".

The President said the newspaper did not include the "tremendous things" he said about Ms May in the interview.

Trump told The Sun that if May pursues her "soft" Brexit plan, it will jeopardize any potential trade deal between the United States and Britain.

Donald Trump has tried to backtrack on his criticism of Theresa May's Brexit plans - but has instead confirmed the fears of many Tory MPs over the policy.

"I said, 'I want to apologise because I said such good things about you, ' And she said, 'Don't worry, it's only the press, '" Trump said of their purported conversation.

And he warned that Britain's trade relationship with the USA could be in jeopardy if May follows through with her "soft" Brexit blueprint.

"I just think it is changing the culture, I think it is a very negative thing for Europe", he added.

"The President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much".

"Well, we're a real network, too, Mr. President", Acosta replied.

But speaking at Chequers alongside the Prime Minister, Trump went on to attack European Union rules on farming standards - something the United Kingdom would still follow after Brexit thanks to the "common rulebook".

In contrast to the president's sharp words, Trump was hosted at a number of opulent events, including an audience with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle later Friday.

She maintained the government's Brexit agreement, which has come under fire from supporters of a "hard Brext" "delivers" on the referendum vote. Anti-Trump protesters lined the road up to the building, but it is unlikely the Trumps - who arrived via helicopter - saw them.

Queen Elizabeth II has met every USA president since 1952, with the exception of Lyndon B. Johnson. "But Boris Johnson, I think would be a great Prime Minister". Trump plans to spend the weekend at his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland before flying to Helsinki, Finland, for a summit Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He said he would also talk about Ukraine, Syria and nuclear proliferation, calling it the biggest issue. "I don't know what they're going to do but whatever you do is ok with me, that's your decision", he continued.
