United Kingdom should be ready to leave European Union without a deal, says Trump

His itinerary includes a banquet at Buckingham Palace and tea with Prince Charles.

The U.K. government would like to avoid a meeting between Trump and Farage, though the decision rests with the US leader, the Express said, citing a government source it didn't identify.

Touching upon outgoing UK Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump said "They've got to get it done".

The senior administration official said a potential U.S. -U.K. trade deal is "obviously going to be on the agenda", but also sought to tamp down expectations.

"If they don't get what they want, I would walk away..."

"First of all, [the Trump administration] got out of the Iran agreement, something that I would not have done, leaving this all to our allies to enforce and giving more leverage to China and to Russian Federation, the last thing that we should be doing".

"If you don't get the deal you want, if you don't get a fair deal, then you walk away", Trump said.

The president proposed Boris Johnson, the pro-Brexit former foreign secretary and onetime mayor of London, as a good candidate to succeed Prime Minister Theresa May, who will step down as leader of her party on Friday.

"I like Nigel a lot", he said.

Rugh said he thought prosecutors were coordinating the investigation with the USA attorney's office in San Diego . Defense lawyers accuse prosecutors of misconduct and want them removed if the judge doesn't throw the case out.

Khan said Trump's "divisive behaviour flies in the face of the ideals America was founded upon - equality, liberty and religious freedom". They were even more evenly split when it came to Trump's meeting with Queen Elizabeth II on Monday, with 41 percent saying she should meet him and 42 percent saying she should not. "They just haven't figured that out yet".

Trump also said he "wouldn't pay" the $50 billion so-called "divorce bill" to settle the U.K.'s financial obligations with the European Union: "I'm only saying this from my stand point. That is me. I would not pay - that is a tremendous number".

Trump's national security adviser John Bolton said on Thursday the United States did not want to "get in the middle" of Brexit or a discussion of the next government's policies.

"A state visit is very special".

On the eve of Mr Trump's arrival, his ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, waded into the Huawei controversy and the possibility the Chinese company could be involved in building Britain's 5G network.

Whoever takes over as Britain's next prime minister should not be afraid to "walk away" from negotiations with Brussels and should refuse to pay the agreed divorce bill, he told the Sunday Times newspaper.

Later, accompanied by the Duke of York, Mr and Mrs Trump will visit Westminster Abbey for a tour, and the president will lay a wreath at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior. Asked if that included healthcare, he replied: "I would think so".

"We do more together than any other nations in the world".

He will also attend D-Day commemorations in Portsmouth before departing the United Kingdom for France on Wednesday evening.
