"Terrible stuff", she wrote.Trump shocked British media and many in the US when he openly attacked May's plan for Brexit during his Thursday interview with The Sun, before going further to lament that "millions" of immigrants were forever altering Europe's cultural makeup."I would have done it much differently", Trump said of May's Brexit plan.

He said that May's new, softer approach to Brexit - which would leave Britain sticking to a "common rulebook" with Brussels on goods - would kill off the chances of a much sought-after U.S. -U.K. trade deal.

On a visit to London two months before the 2016 Brexit referendum, former U.S. President Barack Obama said Britain would be at the "back of the queue" for a trade deal if it departed the European Union, an intervention condemned by those backing the "Leave" campaign such as Johnson.

Trump also warned May in the interview that any future trade deal with Britain will not be likely if Britain has a soft exit from the European Union.

"No, if they do that, I would say that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States". "I was opening Turnberry the day before Brexit". The photographs showing them holding hands and Mrs May's unexpected offer of a state visit to Britain showed the lengths she was willing to go to demonstrate the closeness of the trans-Atlantic "special relationship". "I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it's never going to be what it was and I don't mean that in a positive way". "He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person. But it is too bad what's going on".

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

The President's deeply-embarrassing comments emerged moments after Mr Trump had been given a red-carpet welcome fit for a bosom friend at Blenheim Palace, and just as Mrs May made her speech declaring what a "joy" it was to stand side-by-side with the US.

Police said there were no indications that Crenshaw was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident. Crenshaw then got up and used the scissors in self defense and quickly walked off, police said.

Trump also said that he was "very saddened" to see Johnson was leaving government and said he hoped "he goes back in at some point".

Trump also heaped praise on Boris Johnson, who resigned as foreign secretary this week along with Brexit Secretary David Davis in protest at May's strategy.

There's a new petition calling for the baby balloon to be taken to Scotland and for it to fly over the golf course where Trump will be present on Saturday. He insisted that he still thinks May is "a very good person" and claimed that he never called her a "bossy schoolteacher" as reported in the Washington Post. "I'm very strong on immigration".

President Trump recently stated, "I think they like me a lot in the United Kingdom", which is about as accurate as Kanye West saying, "I think Taylor Swift likes me a lot".

He continued: 'I think you have to give all the protagonists, whether it's the president or the prime minister, a little bit of leeway here.

'I don't think so - not right now, ' White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told in advance of Trump's joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

And then there's the royal moment that the world will be watching on Friday: the moment that Trump meets the Queen. She's just an incredible woman.

But after talks with Mrs May he claimed "tremendous things" he said about her had been left out of the Sun story. "She's got a great and attractive grace about her".
