Trump Baby Blimp Hits The Skies Of London During UK Visit

Donald Trump UK visit- Trump and Theresa May

US President Donald Trump and Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May shake hands during a press conference following their meeting at Chequers, the prime minister's country residence, near Ellesborough, northwest of London on the second day of Trump's United Kingdom visit.

He had used a Thursday morning press conference in Brussels to attack the prime minister's Brexit plan and highlight cabinet divisions.

He added that May should make sure "we don't have any restrictions" on post-Brexit trade, contrasting it with European Union tariffs on cars and restrictions on farm imports.

We've looked at this before, and though it's rare, there is a clear instance of Trump apologizing - after the Access Hollywood tape, in which he described assaulting women, leaked just before the 2016 election. But at the Chequers news conference, Trump said he had been responding to the Sun's question about Johnson as a possible prime minister, adding: "He has been very nice to me". He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me.

But standing alongside Mrs May after the meeting at her country residence, Mr Trump praised her as an "incredible woman" and a "very tough negotiator" who was "doing a fantastic job", and said there could be a "great" trade deal between the U.S. and UK.

May was at pains to impress Trump and planned to push for a trade deal in their meeting - an accord which had seemed like a foregone conclusion in the early stages of their relationship.

Trump claimed that he didn't criticize May in his interview with The Sun, and he even called the report "fake news".

However, he later said Ms May was doing a "fantastic job".

Pres. Trump denies interview with The Sun was critical of Prime Minister Theresa May.




Despite a series of diplomatic spats between Britain and Trump, the British government is hoping for a quick trade deal with the United States after it leaves the European Union. I am just saying I think he would be a great Prime Minister. It's a much different deal than people voted on. If signing up to the Trump world view is the price of a deal, it's not worth paying", she tweeted, adding that Trump was "determined to insult" the prime minister."Our prime minister is so weak she still rolls out the red carpet for a man who does nothing but insult her. He was decidedly critical of May and her Brexit plan, saying he "would have done it much differently". Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis both quit the government this week in protest.

The former Apprentice host also revealed that he has been told of the 20ft "Trump Baby" blimp that will be flown above Parliament Square todays.

Smith is part of the Stop Trump Coalition and one of the 16 people behind the balloon.

Market watchers warned the prime minister's white paper was also adding to the uncertainty as the European Union may demand more concessions, leading to more political volatility after a series of resignations from the government.

Ms Thornberry added: 'I don't trust her to stand up for our country when it comes to President Trump.

In the wake of the interview, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement that appeared aimed to smooth things over.

Sheila Menon, one of the organizers of the balloon, told CNBC's Steve Sedgwick that this protest has become so popular because "so many people have a very strong opinion about President Trump".

Trump, sat next to May at her official country residence at Chequers on Friday, said we "really have a very good relationship", and would discuss trade, the military and other matters over lunch. "He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person".
