Donald Trump sorry for explosive Brexit claims but attacks fake news

After publicly criticising British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that the relationship was "very, very strong".

The Times leads with Mr Trump "changing tack" and saying that he would like to secure a trade deal between the United Kingdom and the USA, having previously called it into doubt.

At the press conference Trump was asked by reporters if he thought the British-U.S. relationship was a special one, and the president labeled the bilateral relationship as "the highest level of special".

"We will do a trade deal with them and with others around the rest of the world", she added.

Mr Trump's remarks about her Brexit strategy had added to the pressure on Mrs May, who has also seen her proposals - agreed by cabinet ministers last week and published in a white paper on Thursday - rejected by Tory Brexiteers.

It seems likely that Trump's complaint will focus on two words that appear inside quotation marks in the tabloid's headline - the idea that May "wrecked it", referring to Brexit.

Some Twitter users speculated that she could hit back, as Hugh Grant did playing the prime minister in romantic comedy "Love Actually".

Dr Fox said that ministers had been able to explain details of their plan - which would see Britain maintain a "common rule book" with the European Union covering standards for trade in goods - during their meetings with the president and his officials.

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of protesters marched against the U.S. president through central London, bringing much of the capital to a standstill. As for her relationship with Trump, she said: "We are friends".

England's encouraging World Cup performance ended with successive defeats as Belgium claimed third spot in Russian Federation . But, the Red Devils' run came to a grinding halt against France, who beat them 1-0 in the semi-finals earlier this week.

The demonstrations were in stark contrast to Trump's assertion to the press that the British "agree with me on immigration" and mirrored those in Brussels ahead of Trump's arrival there on Tuesday to meet with other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders.

Donald Trump has sought to undo the damage caused by his dramatic Brexit intervention by revealing he apologised to Theresa May for an explosive newspaper interview.

One of the organisers of the blimp protest said the aim was to make people laugh.

In a frenetic news conference at Chequers, May's official country house, an unrestrained Trump blamed his predecessor for Russian aggression in Crimea, placed fair trade at the center of Britain's efforts to leave the European Union, defended his beliefs that immigration has damaged Europe and repeatedly jousted with television correspondents' whose coverage he found critical.

The i reports that 100,000 people took to the streets of London to protest against the visit of Mr Trump.

Trump also blamed recent terrorist attacks there on Khan, who is Muslim.

"I said, 'I want to apologise because I said such good things about you, ' And she said, 'Don't worry, it's only the press, '" Trump said of their purported conversation. I didn't think they put it in, but that's all right.

Before heading for Scotland, the president and Queen Elizabeth II became acquainted over tea at Windsor Castle. He's been saying very good things about me as president.
