Trump says May is doing Brexit wrong, threatening United States trade deal

Calls made for Theresa May's job over Brexit as government in chaos before Trump visit

He then proceeded to praise perhaps her most prominent rival, Boris Johnson, who resigned as foreign secretary last week in protest over her Brexit plan.

The two departures seemed to shatter May's own proclamation of cabinet unity last Friday, when she said she believed she had, after two years of wrangling, secured agreement on Britain's biggest foreign and trading policy shift in nearly half a century. He has criticized May over her response to terrorism and approach to Brexit, and infuriated many in Britain when he retweeted a far-right group.

Barnier, for his part, told a Council on Foreign Relations meeting in NY this week that partnership in a single market "cannot amount to membership".

"It is crucially important as it shows how well founded concerns over the Chequers conclusions are", he told Reuters."If the Brexit Secretary could not support them they cannot genuinely be delivering Brexit".

Earlier she said she had chaired a "productive" meeting of her reshaped cabinet ahead of the publication later this week of a full White Paper policy document on Brexit. "That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt". "In that respect we are truly headed for the status of colony".

On the worldwide markets, sterling slipped by a third of a cent against the dollar to $1.3288 in early trading. Mr Davis said the proposals were a "compromise too far" and was "giving away too much too easily" and would effectively mean the United Kingdom remaining in the EU.

Newly appointed Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said the plans called for an "innovative and unprecedented economic partnership" between Britain and the EU.

It was a rocky day for May, weakened after she lost the Conservatives' majority in parliament in an ill-judged election past year.

During a session in parliament, May signalled that, after finally nailing her colours to a vision for Brexit, she had made a decision to face down the dissenters, who do not form a majority in parliament.

Asked Tuesday whether May should be replaced as prime minister, Trump said it was "up to the people, not up to me".

"Over that time, I've listened to every possible idea and every possible version of Brexit".

But prominent Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg described it as a "breakdown in trust" and said Mrs May must now U-turn or be forced to rely on Labour votes to get her legislation through Parliament.

May's proposals for a future European Union relationship after Britain departs from the bloc next March had taken two years of internal wrangling to agree.

He said that felt he had to resign as he had no desire to be a "reluctant conscript" in the selling the PM's deal in negotiations with the EU. "Brussels must not mistakenly conclude, as EU Council chief Donald Tusk hinted, that one more push will destroy Brexit".

"But I come back to this point, if people don't like this proposal what is their alternative?"

Both Davis and Johnson left because, according to May, they did not agree on the best path for honoring the results of the Brexit referendum in 2016.

At a meeting with her Conservative Party lawmakers on Monday (9 July), she was cheered and applauded by many as she warned them that internal squabbling could pave the way for socialist opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn to take power instead.

They fear a clean break would cost jobs.

Brexit-backing lawmakers have been angered by May's plans, saying they will keep Britain too close to the European Union and limit its ability to strike new trade deals.

May insisted that her proposals would honour the will of the British people, as expressed in the In/Out referendum, by ending free movement of people, the jurisdiction of the European Court and "vast" payments to the bloc.
