Trump blames Theresa May for Brexit debacle in explosive interview

But many Brexit supporters have cast May's negotiation as a betrayal, including lawmakers in her own deeply divided party, who have warned May might face a leadership challenge.

His comments went down badly in Downing Street as the Prime Minister desperately battles to contain a civil war within her party over her Brexit proposals.

The Sun said the interview was conducted Thursday in Brussels, before Trump travelled to Britain. It was one of over a hundred protests police expected during Trump's four-day trip.

The long-awaited document proposes keeping Britain and the bloc in a free market for goods, with a looser relationship for services.

But the plan has infuriated fervent Brexit supporters, who think it would limit Britain's ability to strike new trade deals around the world.

Johnson isn't the only politician to have quit over May's Brexit plans, as ministers David Davis and Steve Baker also quit the government in protest.

Trump accused the British political leader of "killing" chances of a United States trade deal by ignoring his advice on Brexit and taking her own, "softer" approach.

The documents said that Daniels, who was semi-nude, allegedly touched some of the patrons' breasts and allowed them to touch her. In May, Trump said Daniels was paid to stop "false and extortionist accusations" she made about a sexual encounter with him.

But Trump threw cold water on that prospect in his Sun interview, saying: "If they do a deal like [May's plan], we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal.

I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me".

Some elements are likely to anger Brexit-backers, including Britain's willingness to pay the European Union for access to certain agencies and the suggestion some European Union citizens could continue to work in Britain visa-free. It was agreed by her Cabinet only last Friday after two years of wrangling since Britons voted to leave the bloc in the referendum.

The proposals also may fall foul of European Union insistence that the U.K can not "cherry pick" the benefits of European Union membership, such as access to the single market, without accepting the responsibilities, including free movement. "That is exactly what we will do".

Asked if he thought that Johnson could one day ascend to the role of prime minister, Trump said "Well, I am not pitting one against the other".

He said London mayor Sadiq Khan, who has allowed protesters to raise a giant diaper-clad balloon mocking the United States president next to parliament on Friday, was doing "a bad job" on crime.

However, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the president's policies were putting millions of lives at risk and criticised May for her warm welcome. The plans laid out in a 98-page government paper give Britain's most detailed answer yet to the question of what will replace it.

Mr Schäuble said: "The US president has a different way of communicating, which is odd to me, and I do not like it". He also said he thought spending of 4 percent on defence - similar to the U.S. level - would be the right level.

Trump planned to meet with May again Friday for lunch and the two were scheduled to hold a joint press conference.

Trump's interview easily could overshadow the government's attempt to lay out plans for what it calls a "principled and pragmatic" Brexit.

He said: "I hope that people in parliament will support it, once we have agreement from the EU". Such a resolution would avoid disruption to automakers and other manufacturers that source parts from multiple countries.

Protesters gathered outside the entrance to Blenheim Palace ahead of the scheduled dinner.

But services including financial services such as accounting and insurance account for three-quarters of the British economy.

"Michel Barnier and his taskforce can not negotiate an outcome that compromises the integrity of the single market for everybody else".

Despite a series of diplomatic spats between Britain and Trump, May is hoping for a quick trade deal with the USA after it leaves the EU.

"This [Ramsey's contract] is one question for the player, the club, but my opinion - I said to them - I think he is one important player for me".

The plan put forward today would see the UK form an associate agreement with the EU, would effectively keep the UK in the customs union and single market for goods, and could allow EU migrants to work in the UK without a visa - albeit on a temporary basis.
