Donald Trump met by protests on first day of United Kingdom visit

But her address to Mr Trump at the Oxfordshire stately home - the birthplace of Winston Churchill - followed a Brussels press conference where the U.S. leader highlighted Government divisions over Brexit.

Trump's remarks, made in a bombshell interview with The Sun published Thursday during his first visit to Britain as United States president, are an explosive intervention into British politics that seem likely to cause political chaos and imperil the prime minister as she attempts to negotiate Britain's exit from the European Union.

Last month, Labour member of Parliament Gavin Shuker ran down a list of objections to Trump: the separation of migrant families and detention of children; the USA departure from the United Nations' Human Rights Council; the US president's praise for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump made his first trip to the U.K.as president after a tense summit with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels and only days after fresh ruptures in May's government over Britain's exit from the European Union.

Britain and the USA are the largest investors in each other's economies, with over a trillion dollars of investments between them, Mrs May, said, adding: "The strength and breadth of Britain's contribution to the United States economy can not be understated".

Trump chastised May for ignoring his advice on Brexit and not making a credible threat to walk away from talks.

Mr Trump spoke to The Sun in Brussels ahead of his arrival in London on Thursday, warning Theresa May over Brexit and immigration, and being supportive of ex-foreign secretary Boris Johnson.

He also said that he "would have done it much differently", referring to the Brexit plan. That will be up to her to say.

He told reporters: "He's been very nice to me. She wanted to go a different route".

It comes just days after Mr Trump declined to say whether Mrs May should remain in post, said he had "always liked" Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over the Chequers agreement, and described the United Kingdom as being in "turmoil".

Asked about Trump's remarks while also in Brussels, May said: "What we are doing is delivering on the vote of the British people... that's what our proposal does".

Obama 'proud' to visit Africa again
Obama wrote that the memoir is "essential reading for anyone who wants to understand history - and then go out and change it". Per QZ, Rhodes believes it'll be the most important speech Obama will have delivered since departing the White House.

Trump came down firmly on the side of the Brexiteers. It was agreed by her cabinet only last Friday after two years of wrangling since Britons voted to leave the bloc in the referendum.

Trump's trip coincides with a tumultuous week for May after two senior ministers resigned in protest at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves next March.

Some Brexit supporters have cast May's Brexit plan as a betrayal, including MPs in her own deeply-divided party who have warned of a leadership challenge.

"I would actually say she probably went the opposite way", Trump said.

After a tumultuous couple years for the "special relationship" between the US and her closet ally, tested repeatedly by disagreements, the frustration at the street level with Mr. Trump's policies, style and manner manifested Thursday in some demonstrations.

"Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future".

He then travels north to Scotland where he and his wife Melania will spend the weekend privately.

In sharp contrast to the president sharp words, Trump's first event in England was an oasis of warm greetings at an evening reception at Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill, the larger-than-life British leader cited by the president as a model of leadership.

Trump's comments saw the value of the pound plunge on currency markets.

Mr Trump famously took Theresa May's hand when she visited the White House in 2017. He is imprisoning children and tearing them away from their families. I was very saddened to see he was leaving government and I hope he goes back in at some point.

"I know Londoners are resolutely opposed to the politics of fear and despair".
