Explosive Trump interview adds to chaos on 1st British visit

GETTYDonald Trump comes to Britain later today

President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May pledged full cooperation on trade and other issues Friday, easing tensions following Trump's explosive interview in which he criticized her handling of "Brexit" and called into question a U.S. -U.K. trade deal.

"We agreed today, that as the UK leaves the European Union, we will pursue an ambitious US-UK Free Trade Agreement", she said, adding: "The Chequers agreement reached last week provides the platform for Donald and me to agree an ambitious deal that works for both countries right across our economies".

When asked about the interview, Trump said, "I didn't criticize the prime minister". Donald Trump has launched an astonishing attack on the British Prime Minister over her handling of Brexit, hours before touching down in the UK.

"I said, 'I want to apologise because I said such good things about you, ' And she said, 'Don't worry, it's only the press, '" Trump said of their purported conversation.

Trump told The Sun that conducted the interview while he was in Brussels for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) summit, that UK's blueprint for its post-Brexit relations with the European Union was "a much different deal than the people voted on".

With its straw-blond hair, questionable face tan and unmistakably out-of-proportion hands, a blimp meant to depict President Donald Trump as a screaming baby flew outside the Parliament building in London Friday.

Donald Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday for his first visit as U.S. president, flying into a whirlwind of protests.

He said the USA will back whatever Brexit policy the United Kingdom government wants to pursue.

Mr Trump said he thought Mr Johnson would make a "great Prime Minister" and that he was "saddened" the former foreign secretary was out of the government.

May was hosting Trump at a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Britain's World War II Prime Minister Winston Churchill - the leader who coined the term "special relationship" for the trans-Atlantic bond.

Speaking in the grounds of the PM's official country residence, Mr Trump said he had given her a suggestion about how to come out on top in the talks but "she found it maybe too brutal".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in response to questions about the president's Sun interview said in a statement: "The President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much".

"Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place". I'm sorry, I was wrong to say the things that I said would be an apology. "One of the reasons I got elected was because of immigration, I felt that Brexit had the upper hand, and most people didn't agree with me". "I think you're losing your culture". "We record when we deal with reporters - it's called fake news". "I think he is a great representative for your country", Trump told the newspaper. "The real reason Trump blames my friend @SadiqKhan for the terror attacks past year is simple", he tweeted.
