UK's May Hopes Trump’s Visit to UK to Strengthen Bilateral Cooperation

Trump said he believes Boris Johnson would do'an excellent job as prime minister

Speaking before his state visit to the United Kingdom tomorrow, the USA president waded into the Brexit crisis by saying the United Kingdom should be prepared to "walk away" if Brussels does not give it what it wants.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will step down days after Trump visits and French President Emmanuel Macron is expected to use the 75th anniversary of the World War II battle that turned the tide in Europe to call for strengthening the multinational ties the US president has frayed.

Mr Woody Johnson, the U.S. ambassador to Britain, also played down the significance of Mr Trump's praise for Mr Johnson, telling the BBC's "Andrew Marr Show": "He has known Boris for a long time, so I think what he's commenting on is just his knowledge of Boris as a person and all the meetings he's had with Boris". He said that Britain's next Prime Minister should "walk away" from trying to clinch a Brexit deal with the European Union if Brussels fails to yield to the UK's demands.

Queen Elizabeth II will welcome Trump and his wife Melania to Buckingham Palace, where they will be treated to a guard of honour, a private lunch and later, a glittering state banquet.

Defying diplomatic norms for the second time in as many days after telling The Sun he backs Boris Johnson to become the next prime minister, Trump also said he would have "to know" Jeremy Corbyn before authorising the sharing of highly sensitive United States intelligence.

"He's been a friend of mine, he's been very nice, I have a very good relationship with him", Mr Trump said on Sunday, referring to Mr Johnson. "They won't bring him in but think how well they would do if they did". He also noted Britain's request for a trade deal, saying that he thought "there's an opportunity for a very big trade deal at some point in the near future, we'll see how that works out". "He has a lot to offer".

On Labour opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, Trump said he would have "to know" him before allowing USA intelligence to share its most sensitive secrets with a hard-left government. "They just haven't figured that out yet". And a Whitehall source said last night: "Downing Street are doing their utmost to avoid the two meeting, though of course the decision rests with Donald Trump".

At a meeting with May, Trump will warn Britain that security cooperation could be hurt if London allows China's Huawei a role in building parts of the 5G network, the next generation of cellular technology.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a veteran socialist, denounced the president's "entirely unacceptable interference in our democracy".

In an interview with the Sunday Times newspaper, he emphasised that there was "tremendous potential" for Britain to trade with his country after Brexit.

May worked for months to arrange this visit, the first stop of a five-day tour for Trump that will also commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion with solemn ceremonies in Britain and France.
