Donald Trump apologises to British PM Theresa May over ‘fake news’

In an interview with the Sun published late Thursday, as he dined with May, Trump said her proposal to execute a so-called "soft Brexit", maintaining ties with the European Union, was wrong and would torpedo a us trade deal.

"Prime Minister as I just said she's going to make a decision as to what she's going to do", he said. The blundering, now ex-foreign secretary Boris Johnson, a person with his own conditioning of Trumpism, would "make a great prime minister". "I think he's got what it takes". I also think he doesn't respect women.

"I was very surprised and saddened that he was getting out of government".

The streets of London are lined with protesters rallying against President Donald Trump's visit to the United Kingdom.

"Thank you very much for saying that".

Trump changed his position from the criticism in The Sun interview.

"The UK has a proud history of welcoming people who are fleeing persecution to our country", she said.

May, for her part, praised the strength of the USA -U.K. bond.

Trump's visit comes at a time of political turmoil for the embattled British prime minister, who is fending off criticism over her plans for a "soft Brexit".

"She is a total professional because when I saw her I said, 'I want to apologize, because I said such good things about you, ' " Trump said. I gave her a suggestion, not advice.

Asked if she thought the concerns were serious, she said, "No". Obodo, a Nigerian living in London, said he wanted to add his voice to those who are quieter, but believe Trump is doing a good job on issues such as pushing North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members to increase their defense spending. May were to hold lengthy discussions at the Prime Minister's country retreat called Chequers. And you know, he's frankly used Donald Trump to really help define himself even further in this city as a defender of these sorts of liberal values and multicultural values which, you know, you and I began the conversation on with immigration. "If they don't make the right deal, she might very well do what I suggested that she might want to do", he 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.

Trump noted that maintaining nuclear arsenals is "also very expensive", but said that was the "least important" issue.

The president also pledged to raise the issue of election meddling during the summit and said he would tell Putin not to interfere in future US elections.

"I'll absolutely bring that up, but it won't be a Perry Mason moment". "He says, 'Oh, this is a free world.' But then he goes and builds walls".

"It is wrong for the president to have done this", the statement said.

Thousands crammed the streets of central London on Friday to vent their anger over Donald Trump's first official visit to Britain, blowing horns, waving banners and hoisting a bright orange effigy of the United States president on their shoulders. They weren't in the headline of the story, he said, so he didn't see them.

The Independent also takes up the president's attempt to go back on what he apparently told the Sun, with a somewhat tongue-in-cheek effort: "Trump's backtrack - the "highest level of special". It goes with "Fake Schmooze", and says Trump has been "forced" into a climbdown to patch things up with Theresa May.

Trump again called independent counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference "a rigged witch hunt".

Parakilas said this will do something to fix the diplomatic fences knocked down by the content of The Sun interview.

Tom Newton Dunn, who interviewed Trump for the Sun, said the president seemed "sensitive" about the inflatable "Trump baby" being flown over London and its accompanying protests on Friday.

'He's a racist and a bigot, ' she said. "We spoke for an hour, an hour and a half; it was really something", Trump said.
