Thousands began protesting in London as British Prime Minister Theresa May welcomed US President Donald Trump to her official country residence for a meeting that is expected to be unusually tense, after he trashed her Brexit plan in a newspaper interview.

Despite a series of diplomatic spats between Britain and Trump, the British government is hoping for a quick trade deal with the United States after it leaves the European Union. In the interview, Trump said he advised her, but "she didn't listen to me". "Because when I saw her this morning I said I want to apologize 'I want to apologize because, I said such good things about you.' She said, 'don't worry, it was only the press.' I thought that was very professional".

Trump's Brexit comments came on the same day May's government published long-awaited proposals for Britain's relations with the European Union after it leaves the bloc next year.

Mr Trump used the interview with the Sun to lay into Mr Khan, who criticised the American leader as "ill-informed" over a tweet following the London Bridge attack in June 2017.

Trump conceded that the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels earlier this week at times got "testy" over his demands that European nations increase their spending on defense, but he said it ended with "more unity" and "more spirit" and that Putin would see those headlines, not ones that talked about the alliance's divisions.

As for Johnson, Trump called him "a very talented guy", lamented his resignation and, while couching his comment in regard to May, said Johnson would make a good head of government. I never said anything bad about her.

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

Addressing the 100-strong dinner at Blenheim Palace, the Prime Minister said there was an "unprecedented" opportunity to do a deal that boosted jobs and growth in both countries.

That means he will not be in the city when the Angry Baby Trump Blimp flies above Parliament Square for two hours on Friday, July 13.

May said there are no limits to Britain doing trade deals once Britain leaves the European Union, adding: "We will do a trade deal with the United States and others around the world".

"As far as advice, I did give her a suggestion - I wouldn't say advice - and I think she found it maybe too brutal. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?"

Trump then heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

"Trump...has unleashed an absolute tsunami of misogyny and racism, and he has normalized the extremist forces in the world", one protester told the BBC. I am assuming that his mum told him that when you go to someone's house you do not insult the host. "It's called fake news".

Prime Minister May said they had discussed plans for an "ambitious" trade agreement.
