Trump backtracks on Theresa May criticism, doubles down on immigration's "negative" effects

REUTERS  AFP  GETTYMelania Trump news Donald Trump and his wife scrubbed up well for their first night in the UK

More recently, in February, Trump once again tried but failed to make hand-to-hand contact with his wife as they departed the White House for a trip to Ohio.

The president, whose mother was born in Scotland before immigrating to the US, will also be greeted by protesters, as several large demonstrations are planned in various Scottish cities.

Campaigners will also gather outside the Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeenshire, his second course, and there could be some protests at Turnberry.

May hosts Trump on Thursday for a black-tie dinner with business leaders at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Second World War prime minister Winston Churchill, and on Friday, the pair will visit a defence site before travelling to the prime minister's Chequers country residence for talks followed by a press conference. The vast majority of British people are appalled by his words and deeds.

He said Mr Trump's remarks on trade were a "perfectly reasonable thing for an American president to say".

Trump told The Sun newspaper that May's plan for Brexit had probably killed off the chance of a U.S.

But even before he arrived, the president criticized May's Brexit plan, said the country was in "somewhat turmoil" and that meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin next week - the British premier's geopolitical enemy - would be easier than meeting with her.

In that, he tells people to "overshoot" - asking for far more than they ever expect.

The Daily Telegraph stays with Brexit but tries to turn the attention back on the prime minister, with "Revealed: advice from Trump that May ignored". Mundell told media that welcoming the USA president was "an opportunity to strengthen vital links" with a key ally, adding that he hoped Trump enjoyed his stay. May of going soft on Brexit and argued that her strategy would keep the country too aligned with the EU.

Brexiteers have craved a US-UK trade deal since Trump made it clear he would seek to thrash out terms once Britain leaves the European Union on Friday March, 2019.

"I have a lot of respect for Boris".

He said: "The only thing I ask of Theresa is that we make sure we can trade and we don't have any restrictions because we want to trade with the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom wants to trade with us.

And unfortunately there was a story that was done, which was generally fine, but it didn't put in what I said about the prime minister, and I said tremendous things".

May squirmed and smiled as Trump patronised her both in the press and in person. That's another thing that makes him a supreme irritant to the president: he's not really spoiling for a fight and will not engage so as not to dignify.

I don't want to be trite, nor slip into the trap of identity politics that is poisoning our modern discourse, but what could possibly set Khan apart from, let's say, the mayor of Manchester, who also, according to Trump's logic, failed to prevent a terror attack past year and therefore also did a "very bad job" on terrorism?
