U.S. President Donald Trump's first official visit to the U.K.is off to a contentious start with the President challenging Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy and highlighting her political troubles.

Referring to the prime minister's most recent proposals which would keep a degree of alignment between United Kingdom and EU rules to smooth trade between the two partners, Trump said: "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal".

It speculated that Mr Trump may have been "wound up" over Brexit by British politician Nigel Farage, the former UK Independence Party leader who campaigned for years for Britain to leave the European Union, or that his comments may have been informed by a meeting between his security adviser John Bolton and the ERG, a group of strongly pro-Brexit Conservative Party MPs.

"I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me".

"If you think of it, for so many years she has represented her country, she has really never made a mistake".

He said: "We have enough difficulty with the European Union".

Trump, 72, was dressed in a smart, black tuxedo while Melania, 48, chose a glamorous, off-the-shoulder lemon gown with ruched detailing across the bodice, a full skirt and a cape overlay.

On Johnson, Trump said: "I have a lot of respect for Boris".

"I think he's got what it takes, and I think he's got the right attitude to be a great prime minister".

Earlier today, Mr Trump appeared to support Boris Johnson, who resigned over the direction of Brexit.

The victims had included Russian women harassed by fans and television reporters who had been accosted while broadcasting. Curiously, an Argentine was also in charge of officiating duties the last time that France made the World Cup final .

May has defended the plan, saying it delivers "on the vote of the British people to take back control of our money, our laws and our borders". Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place.

"I shouldn't be the arbiter, as a politician, of what's in good taste or bad taste, what's important is it to be peaceful, and for it to be safe", he said. He obviously likes me and says very good things about me. "I think you're losing your culture".

His criticism of Britain's anti-terror policies after a series of attacks in 2017 also did not go down well.

Permission was granted by Khan and on the morning of the 13 July, Baby Trump went up in the air to hover over London.

Responding to the comments, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said it was preposterous to blame a rise in violent crime in the city on immigration.

U.S. political website The Hill also focused on Mr Trump's comments about "millions and millions of people" coming to Europe from the Middle East and Africa.

This, after being praised for speaking out about the separation of migrant children from their parents, a Trump administration policy which will be a central tenet of protests in the United Kingdom on Friday.

On Thursday night, hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the USA ambassador's residence where Trump was staying on the outskirts of London, providing a preview of the large protests expected on Friday.

Nick Hurd, Britain's Policing Minister, told parliament police expected more than 100 protests across the country, including two large demonstrations in London on Friday, and there were robust and proportionate plans in place.
