After Blasting UK Over Brexit, Donald Trump Says Relationship Very Strong

Adjust Comment Print

Some 51% of Britons think Mr Trump was right to make his views on Brexit public, while 45% think he should have kept them private - 4% did not know. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis both quit the government this week in protest.

He confirmed that he had threatened to pull United States troops out of Europe at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels during the week, but said the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries had come together and agreed to increase military spending which would make them stronger and more unified.

Trump is meeting May for a working lunch before meeting the Queen for tea and a likely round at his Scottish golf course.

Trump, despite his interview with The Sun, said that he supported whatever decision May comes to regarding Brexit, Britain's departure from the European Union.

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

He also told the tabloid that he had shared advice with May during Britain's negotiations with the European Union, but said May ignored his advice. "And I said to him, 'This special relationship is better than ever, ' and he said, 'It is.' I could see the chemistry between them was very good", Ruddy said. In the interview with the Sun, Trump - who has been a long-time supporter of Brexit - said May had not listened to his advice on how to do a Brexit deal, saying: "I would have done it much differently".

Trump had words of praise, however, for former British Foreign Minister Johnson who resigned earlier this week over the soft Brexit strategy, saying Johnson would "make a great prime minister".

The 23-time Grand Slam singles victor won their semi-final 6-2, 6-4 in just 70 minutes to reach her 10th Wimbledon singles final. Goerges, playing her first Slam semifinal, sent a forehand flying wide off the sidelines to concede serve.


In a statement following the publication of the Sun interview, the White House press secretary said Mr Trump "likes and respects Prime Minister May very much" and he "never said anything bad about her".

That's what it takes to get an apology from Trump, apparently.

Despite his resignation as foreign secretary earlier this week, it has been touted that Trump could meet with Boris Johnson during his United Kingdom trip, with the president saying "obviously likes me, and says very good things about me". "She's a total professional, because when I saw her this morning I said, 'I want to apologize, because I said such good things about you"'. I haven't been there in a long time.

Trump's schedule, however, will largely keep him out of central London. Humiliating", added Labour MP for Exeter Ben Bradshaw.ADVERTISEMENTAnother Labour MP, Rupa Huq, told The Guardian that Trump's comments about Khanm, London's first Muslim mayor, constituted Islamophobia."A dash of Islamophobia lobbed at Sadiq Khan who he blames for terrorism. Look at what is going on in London.

Khan in the past has publicly feuded with Trump after the president criticized him over the city's response to a terror attack. "Relationship is very important".

Mr Trump also offered the opinion that Britain and the rest of Europe is "losing its culture" because of immigration. He's a very people person.
