Trump Apologizes to May and Vows U.K. Trade Deal After Brexit

Theresa May with the defence secretary Gavin Williamson at the Nato summit in Brussels today. Polls suggest her personal ratings have fallen to a new low

May shared details of their meeting with the BBC's Andrew Marr on Sunday.

"He told me I should sue the European Union", she told BBC television.

In the incendiary interview, with the Sun newspaper, the USA leader criticised Mrs May's handling of Brexit negotiations, hailed Boris Johnson - who quit the cabinet earlier this week - as a future and "great Prime Minister" and said there was too much immigration in Europe.

In measured language, he criticised the Prime Minister for the Brexit deal she had persuaded her Ministers - majority at least - to agree to, and for not following his advice on how to negotiate with the EU. But Trump tried to make it up to May on Friday, repeating over and over that she was a "tough negotiator", - a high form of praise from the author of "The Art of the Deal".

"But this solution - half in/half out - won't work, won't end the argument and will simply mean a confused outcome in which we continue to abide by Europe's rules whilst losing our say over them".

The Prime Minister admitted that the white paper was prompted by a need to compromise with the European Union following her earlier Mansion House speech, but asked MPs to "come together behind our plan", in an article in the Mail on Sunday. "The chance to become a credible trading partner will be compromised and we will be unable to strike free-trade deals".

The prime minister knows delivering a Brexit deal acceptable to all sides of her party is an impossible task.

Towering over the queen, Mr Trump and the monarch shared a few interactions as they reviewed troops at the royal castle in Windsor.




Not so she says, it had been "in gestation for some time". "Don't walk away from those negotiations because then you'll be stuck".

'We'll make everything possible if the president wants to do something, ' he added. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me".

Trump claimed he did not criticize Prime Minister Theresa May, even though the "Sun" released audio clips showing that he did.

He said May's plans to bind Britain's economy closely to its European partners after Brexit would "probably kill" its hopes of a United States trade deal.

Asked if now was the moment for Johnson to lead the country, Bannon, who was sacked by the White House in August 2017, said: "I believe moments come".

"Faced with that we had an option". Discussions have been taking place for some considerable time... He would prefer to have her as a friend than an enemy, he added.

May's Brexit plan "will definitely affect trade with the United States, unfortunately in a negative way", said the USA president.
