Trump says May's Brexit plan would kill UK-US trade deal

Explainer Why is Northern Ireland such a big deal in Theresa May’s Brexit negotiations

Boris Johnson accused her of allowing the United Kingdom to simply become a "colony of the EU" while Mr Davis's former chief-of-staff said it was a "Hotel California Brexit" where we never leave.

Trump directly criticized May's Brexit strategy on the eve of their meeting, saying it probably killed off hope of a U.S. -UK trade deal.

But Trump was actually at the opening of Turnberry the day after the Brexit vote occurred, meaning his "prediction" came after the fact. "I think he would be a great Prime Minister, I think he's got what it takes".

Mrs May appealed to European negotiators to "engage" with her blueprint in the same spirit of respect that she said her government was taking toward the EU's own principles and red lines.

"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 a tremendous thing", he said.

Mr Khan said the Prime Minister should not be afraid to challenge the Republican property mogul, who also provoked anger by criticising her Brexit plans and praising her rival, Boris Johnson, as having the ability to be a "great prime minister".

"The relationship between our two nations is indispensable to the cause of justice, liberty and peace", Trump said just before the pair took questions.

The interview was so surprising, Trump's press officer Sarah Sanders issued a statement overnight Thursday to clarify the president's attitude toward May.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who was criticised by Trump in the Sun interview for failing to control crime and prevent militant attacks, gave his blessing for the blimp to be flown and rejected suggestions this showed a lack of respect to the USA president.

Addressing the 100-strong group, the prime minister said there was an "unprecedented" opportunity to do a deal that boosted jobs and growth in both countries.

The British government released detailed plans on Thursday (Friday NZ Time) for what it called a "principled pragmatic and ambitious" Brexit - plans that already triggered the resignation of two top ministers and split the governing Conservative Party, and which face likely resistance from the European Union.

Another wrote: "I think I can hear Dusty singing "The Look of Love".

"It was not the deal that was in the referendum", he told the newspaper.

After the diplomatic explosion of the overnight interview, May and Trump sought to play up their closeness, referring to each other by their first names.

Trump then heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

Opponents of Donald Trump flew a six-meter blimp depicting the USA president as an orange, snarling nappy-wearing baby just outside the British parliament on Friday.

Melania Trump visited veterans on Friday at London's Royal Hospital Chelsea where she also met local school children, accompanied by May's husband Philip. May to correct him by saying flatly: "We will be leaving the European Union and we are leaving on the 29th of March, 2019". As you'd imagine, his appearance has attracted a fair bit of attention, prompting (among many things) a giant 20ft baby blimp to be floated above Parliament Square as part of a huge protest.
