US President Donald Trump and Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May held a meeting on Friday at Chequers the prime minister's country residence near Ellesborough northwest of London

During the interview with The Sun ahead of his visit to the UK, Trump said May ignored his advice by taking a soft stance on trade with the European Union as the UK exits and said that decision would "kill" any chance of an effective trade deal with the U.S.

"I think we could have a very good relationship with President Putin", Trump said, adding that he was not going into the meeting with "high expectations". She wanted to go a different route.

Trump also said former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who quit this week over May's Brexit plan, would make a "great prime minister".

"I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you'd like".

"I have a lot of respect for Boris". "I'm a very stable genius".

In an interview with the British newspaper The Sun, Trump injected himself into a British political landscape still feeling the aftershocks of a cabinet shakeup fueled by a growing rift over Brexit. 'And so now that the details of the white paper are clear, the president and the prime minister will be able to discuss this in more detail'.

And Trump has now openly sided with them against the prime minister. "She said: "Don't worry, it's only the press".

But Trump declined to provide any details about the advice he provided May.

When asked whether Trump should call Putin an enemy, Nina Jankowicz said that Trump should see the Russian president as "at least an adversary". "She probably thought it was too brutal".

The "millions and millions of people" who are immigrating to Europe is "very, very sad", Trump said, telling The Sun that "allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame".

Radev said that, on the other hand, Trump was right, because each country should make a contribution, in a world of growing threats, and build effective capabilities. "He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me", Trump said.

Daniel Jones, a charity communications officer who helped organize the blimp, said the stunt was supposed to make people smile while also underlining serious criticism of the United States leader. He was decidedly critical of May and her Brexit plan, saying he "would have done it much differently".

"President Trump never at any moment, either in public or in private, threatened to withdraw from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation", he said.

"He's really quite stung by the criticism he's been getting", Dunn said.
