Donald Trump makes his first trip to Britain

World Leaders Meet For NATO Summit In Brussels

President Trump claimed Friday ahead of his summit with Vladimir Putin that the Russian president would not have invaded Crimea had he been in office, calling the globally condemned annexation an "Obama disaster".

"For years presidents have been coming to these meetings and have talked about the tremendous expense to the U.S., and tremendous progress has been made", Mr Trump said.

"I believe in Nato", Mr Trump told a press conference after a fraught Nato summit in Brussels.

The summit came as transatlantic ties are already under strain due to United States trade tariffs, along with fears that Trump's summit on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin will pull him further from Nato's orbit. May said in remarks during a banquet on Thursday with Mr. Trump at Blenheim Palace, Churchill's birthplace. But the couple of times that I've gotten to meet him, we got along very well ... but ultimately, he's a competitor.

May has insisted that her Brexit plan will allow Britain to strike its own lucrative trade deals with countries like the United States after her country has left the bloc as planned in March next year. "I was very surprised and saddened that he was getting out of government". I think they agree with me on immigration.

However, while Trump and May exchanged warm words, tens of thousands of protesters marched against the US president through central London, bringing much of the British capital to a standstill.

The chancellor, Philip Hammond, who was doorstepped by reporters in Brussels, said Trump made his comments because he "hasn't yet had a chance to discuss the white paper with the PM". The comments infuriated some of May's Conservative Party colleagues, including one who tweeted, "Where are your manners, Mr. President?" and another who chided Trump for diminishing "the standing of the great country he is meant to lead".

"NATO is not a market where you can buy security, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is a union of sovereign states, united by strategic goals and common values", Radev told journalists at the summit in Brussels. "No, if they do that, I would say that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States". I never said anything bad about her.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London".

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

But that special relationship appeared on the rocks Friday following Trump's stunning interview with The Sun in which the president politically undercut May while she battles to maintain control of her government.

But Trump cautioned that it was hard to do substantive deals with Russia because of an investigation into suspected Russian interference in the 2016 US election, a probe Trump cast as "rigged witch hunt".

"So I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad", he said.

Trump has also frequently angered British politicians and has been involved in social media spats with London's Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan who he said had "done a very bad job on terrorism". I used to love London as a city.
