Trump declared as "fake news" his criticism of May in an early Friday interview in The Sun, eventhough the tabloid released a recording of the session. "I didn't criticize the prime minister", Trump falsely claimed.
Speaking at a joint press conference at Chequers on Friday, the president said he had given May suggestions, rather than advice, on how to pursue Brexit-throwing in a touch of flattery following the critical newspaper interview.
"Fortunately, we tend to record stories now, so we have it for your enjoyment if you like it".

May thanked Trump for responding to Russia's alleged chemical agent attack in Wiltshire by expelling 60 Russian spies from the United States and applauded Trump's upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Trump added that he thought May's response was "very professional".
Bannon was Trump's 2016 campaign chair and senior White House strategist before leaving the administration previous year.

"If they go in a slightly different route, I hope you're going to be able to trade with the US", Trump said.
Asked if he could become prime minister, he added: "Well I am not pitting one against the other". "I am assuming that his mum told him that when you go to someone's house you do not insult the host".
Donald Trump apologised to Theresa May over an incendiary interview criticising her premiership, and hailed UK-US relations as the "highest level of special".
The president stood behind his comments to The Sun regarding immigration, saying it was "changing the culture. I think it's a fantastic thing".
While Trump's trip was not the full state visit he was originally promised, he was heralded by military bands on his arrival in the country and at Blenheim, and he is scheduled to have tea with Queen Elizabeth.
