Trump Calls US Relationship With UK The ‘Highest Level Of Special’

British Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip stand together with U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at the entrance to Blenheim Palace near Oxford

"Prime Minister as I just said she's going to make a decision as to what she's going to do", he said. The president also blamed immigration for the rise in violent crime in the city.

Trump, who has compared the June 2016 referendum in which a majority of British voters supported leaving the European Union to his own election that year, accused May of abandoning British voters with her Brexit plans. "I don't know (if) that is what they voted for", he added.

"I'm confident it will happen, and the trade between our two countries is so important that it will be in our mutual interests to have a trade deal between the United States and the UK".

The White House quickly sent out a statement in the wake of the interview, playing up ties between May and Trump.

"She's a total professional", Trump said.

Such comments are likely to be seen as unwelcome by Mrs May, who has already faced significant political criticism for hosting Mr Trump.

In one tweet on Thursday, Khan didn't mention Trump by name - but said Londoners have the moral duty to protest when shared US-UK values are under attack.

"The only thing I ask is that she work it out so that we can have very even trade because we do not have a fair deal with the European Union, right now, on trade", he said.

Donald Trump has heaped praise on "incredible" Theresa May and hailed UK-US relations as the "highest level of special" hours after incendiary comments criticising her premiership.

U.S., North Korea to meet on Sunday over war remains
The goal of Pompeo's latest trip to Pyongyang was to negotiate the details of the nuclear agreement Trump signed along with Kim. In the Twitter post , Trump hailed the letter, saying, " A very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea .

"I would have done it much differently. I think they agree with me on immigration", he told media from Brussels on Thursday. "She wanted to go a different route", he said.

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

"We stand by our reporting and the quotes we used - including those where the President was positive about the Prime Minister, in both the paper and in our audio - and we're delighted that the President essentially retracted his original charge against the paper later in the press conference".

The Sun's write-up of its interview, which was recorded, quoted him describing her as a "nice person" and saying they get along "very nicely".

A full apology, strictly speaking, would be Trump apologizing for saying the things he said to the Sun reporters.

No 10 sent the Foreign Office minister Sir Alan Duncan out to bat on the airwaves, where he insisted the interview had not been damaging and the visit would "most definitely" be a success.

That's what it takes to get an apology from Trump, apparently. Well I am not pitting one against the other.

Fresh from a contentious meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels in which he demanded member nations contribute more for their collective defense, Trump made a number of incendiary remarks to the British tabloid that are sure to provide fodder for his critics in the United Kingdom and Europe.
