Trump Hails Boris Johnson as Future PM: 'He's Got What It Takes'

Prime Minister Theresa May awaits the arrival of U.S. President Donald Trump at Chequers

In the interview, Trump was especially critical of May's handing of the UK's upcoming exit from the European Union.

Trump further dealt a damaging blow to May by saying he would have handled the Brexit negotiations "much differently".

May's proposal was finalized Friday.

Trump added that May had failed to take his advice on negotiating Brexit with the European Union (EU), and praised the former British foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who had resigned from his post four days earlier in protest at May's Brexit policy.

Gyimah said on Twitter the day after British tabloid The Sun published an interview in which the president criticizes May for her "soft" Brexit plan, among other critical comments.

The Sun is owned by Rupert Murdoch, a close ally of the president's, who also owns Fox News Network, Trump's favorite U.S. TV channel.

A blimp depicting President Trump as a nappy-wearing baby was raised in the air in Parliament Square.

Ivanka also drew negative attention about the "zero tolerance" policy when she visited a school in Syracuse, New York, on Monday. Mueller is reportedly examining Kushner's meetings with Russian officials in 2016.

May hosts Trump on Thursday for a black-tie dinner with business leaders at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Second World War prime minister Winston Churchill, and on Friday, the pair will visit a defence site before travelling to the prime minister's Chequers country residence for talks followed by a press conference.

The President and his wife will travel to Windsor on Friday afternoon to meet the Queen, before flying to Scotland to spend the weekend at Trump's Turnberry golf resort which will be private.

"Prime Minister as I just said she's going to make a decision as to what she's going to do", he said. "I think he is a great representative for your country".

Mr Trump will not personally witness the blimp's flight, which received support from his nemesis, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, but the Republican said it had made him "feel unwelcome" in London. On Thursday, she said Brexit was an "opportunity" to create growth in the United Kingdom and US. This is his first visit to Harry Potter's homeland since taking office.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has defended the right for a 20-foot "angry baby blimp" depicting president Donald Trump to be flown in Parliament Square during the USA leader's four-day "working visit" to Britain.

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

"Unfortunately, there was a story that was done which was generally fine but it didn't put in what I said about the Prime Minister and I said a tremendous thing", he said.
