"It gives them an extra line of argument to say: well we were onto this trade deal but the Prime Minister constrained our hands and therefore we need to change course".

The pound fell nearly a cent against the dollar to $1.3109 as the USA president's comments fuelled fear of a leadership battle for Prime Minister Theresa May or at the very least problems for her Brexit negotiations after the publication of the Brexit white paper on Thursday.

Turning to talk about the white paper recently unveiled by the government, Farage said Trump was "justified" in attacking Theresa May's plans for a super-soft Brexit which - by chaining Britain to the EU Single Market - "has effectively torpedoed the prospect" of a UK/U.S. trade deal.

"Brexit is about whether, for centuries to come, we are to be an independent, sovereign, democratic nation that stands on its own two feet, makes its own laws, controls its own borders, and does its own bilateral deals around the world", the veteran MEP told Breitbart News Network Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow.

While he spoke highly of Johnson, he also heaped praise on May, calling her an "incredible woman" who is "doing a fantastic job". "I would have done it much differently".

"He does listen to her, he does have, I think, a genuine respect for the United Kingdom and for the office that she holds".

This is what White House spokespeople do when a statement they're tasked to deliver is ridiculous and they'd rather attribute it to Trump rather than sacrifice their own credibility.

As Mr Trump and Ms May spoke, thousands of protesters marched through central London, one of more than 100 demonstrations against the President planned during his stay. "I think he's got what it takes".

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

There were also demonstrations close to Winfield House, the United States ambassador's residence near Regents Park where the president and first lady Melania Trump have spent the night.
