I didn't criticise Theresa May to The Sun

World Leaders Meet For NATO Summit In Brussels

US President Donald Trump has lobbed a verbal hand grenade at Theresa May saying the British PM has wrecked the UK's exit from the European Union and killed any chances of a free trade deal with the US. However, that has angered hardliners in May's Cabinet and prompted high-level resignations in the past week, including the departure of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who Trump called "a very talented guy".

"That's up to the people", Mr. Trump said, who went on to generously praise Mr. Johnson, Mrs.

The comments will plunge the transatlantic "special relationship" to new lows, making for extremely awkward talks with May when the two meet at her country retreat of Chequers later on Friday.

"I would have done it much differently". I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me. "She wanted to go a different route", he said.

"For years presidents have been coming to these meetings and have talked about the tremendous expense to the United States, and tremendous progress has been made", Mr Trump said. And that is fine. A YouGov poll on Wednesday showed 77 per cent had an unfavourable opinion of the president and just 50 per cent thought his visit should go ahead.

Trump said he had made a suggestion to May on a negotiating tactic with Brussels that she had not taken because it was "maybe too brutal", but she could still use it if things took a turn for the worse.

"It was not the deal that was in the referendum". I know they have had a lot of resignations.

Trump told The Sun that if May pursues her "soft" Brexit plan, it will jeopardize any potential trade deal between the United States and Britain.

But after talks with Mrs May he claimed "tremendous things" he said about her had been left out of the Sun story.

But Trump poured cold water on May's offer.

Most damaging was Trump's statement that the U.S. would probably not do a trade deal with the United Kingdom because of the limitations on trade implied in May's Brexit plan.

Trump spent his final hours at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels bludgeoning other leaders but got little in the way of concrete results.

But Mrs. Merkel "has benefited at home from Mr. Trump's attacks, since the US president is deeply unpopular among the German electorate, as he is with voters across much of Western Europe", The Washington Post reported Wednesday. "He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the prime minister here in the U.K". The White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, insisted the president "likes and respects Prime Minister May very much".

Before his meeting with May, Trump had already dismayed her team by breaching diplomatic protocol and criticizing her handling of Brexit negotiations in his interview with the Sun.

Under fire for his warm embrace of Russia's Vladimir Putin, Trump on Wednesday also turned a harsh spotlight on Germany's own ties to Russian Federation, alleging that a natural gas pipeline venture with Moscow has left Angela Merkel's government "totally controlled" and "captive" to Russian Federation.

"If we can do something to substantially reduce them, I mean, ideally get rid of them, maybe that's a dream, but certainly it's a subject that I'll be bringing up with him", Trump said of his upcoming meeting with Putin.

He will steer clear of the demonstrations on Friday by meeting May and Queen Elizabeth outside London.

Khan in the past has publicly feuded with Trump after the president criticized him over the city's response to a terror attack.

London endured four terrorists attacks in 2017.
