Trumps kick off United Kingdom visit with black-tie gala

Trumps kick off United Kingdom visit with black-tie gala

Brexit creates "an opportunity to reach a free-trade agreement that creates jobs and growth here in the U.K. and right across the United States", Ms.

"He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K".

Trump also said the deal that May's government has proposed would "probably kill" any trade agreement with the US because Washington "would be dealing with the European Union" instead of with the United Kingdom.

"I would say Brexit is Brexit", he added.

Earlier this week Mr Trump said it was "up to the people" whether Prime Minister Theresa May stayed on after two cabinet ministers resigned within hours over her Brexit policy.

The timing of the comments could not be worse for May, who is fighting a rebellion among her own MPs over Brexit which has seen Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson quit her government.

On Friday, he will hold talks with May expected to focus on Brexit and Russian Federation, at the prime minister's Chequers country residence followed by a press conference.

No sitting USA president has ever made such biting public criticism of a British prime minister while visiting, and his comments undermined May in her party, her country and overseas.

Asked about Trump's comments, May said: "We're delivering on the vote of the British people to take back control of our money, our laws and our borders".

Their departures, followed by a clutch of junior aides, destabilised May's government and revived talk of a leadership challenge against her.

His comments came at the end of a tumultuous few days for May, during which two senior ministers resigned in protest at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves the bloc next March.


As Britain prepares to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019, supporters of Brexit have made much of the so-called special relationship with the United States and the benefits of forging closer trade ties with the world's biggest economy.

But influential Conservative backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg, who opposes Mrs May's plan for post-Brexit trade with the European Union, said many Conservative MPs shared his view.

"Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place", he said in an interview with The Sun.

"The Americans can't believe, quite frankly, what a mess we're making of Brexit", he told the BBC.

Mass protests are scheduled Friday to coincide with President Trump's visit.

Even May's political opponents-outside her own party-seem to be outraged about Trump's attack on her.

The Trumps arrived at the grounds on the president's Marine One helicopter and therefore avoided the estimated 1,000 protesters gathered outside.

In Scotland, almost 8,000 people had signed a petition to be allowed to fly the giant Trump baby ballon over the Turnberry course where the US president is expected to play golf Saturday.

His arrival in Scotland will spark a major security operation, but police have insisted they want to strike a balance between "protection and public safety and the public's right to peacefully protest". "It's also about giving a boost to those in America resisting his policies", said Daniel Jones, 26, who wore a red boiler suit and baseball cap emblazoned with "TRUMP BABYSITTER".

Trump arrived on Air Force One in Stansted airport yesterday afternoon and attended a black tie gala dinner hosted by Mrs May at Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill.

"Boris Johnson's a friend of mine, he's been very nice to me, very supportive and maybe I'll speak to him when I get over there. Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future", she said.
