Trump arrives London on maiden visit as President

Trump arrives London on maiden visit as President

In an interview published just hours before he was due to have lunch with May and tea with Queen Elizabeth on Friday, Trump chided the "very unfortunate" results of the prime minister's Brexit negotiation.

President Donald Trump's interview with the British newspaper The Sun has "come as a bombshell" to London's establishment and told leaders what they did not want to hear, former UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage said Friday. "I think they agree with me on immigration", Trump said.

May wants to impress Trump and use his three-day visit to the United Kingdom to push for a trade deal with the U.S. after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union next year, in a process known as Brexit.

But Mr Trump appeared to link Brexit to the current trade dispute between the U.S. and European Union over steel and aluminium.

"It's not that we think that's a likely scenario. but we think it's prudent that every member state should plan for the worst", he told local media RTE while attending a meeting on rural development issues in the country's western county of Mayo.

"He believes in a world of democratic nation states cooperating with each other, not globalist structures like the European Union", said Farage.

"She didn't listen to me", he told The Sun.

The Trumps landed in Air Force One at Stansted Airport at lunchtime on Thursday to kick-start a four-day working visit to Britain as protests against his trip began.




At a press conference later in the grounds of the PM's country residence, Mr Trump insisted he "didn't criticise" the Prime Minister and hit out at "fake news". He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me.

Trump, who has linked his own election to the June 2016 referendum in which a slim majority of British voters supported leaving the European Union, complained, "The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on".

The US-born woman added: "As an American, I know that most people here know what it is like to have a government that doesn't speak for you, that refuses to do what is right, and sometimes even refuses to turn up and represent you".

"I think a strong message was sent out from Belfast today", he said. But it might spark some sympathy for the embattled Prime Minister. "He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K".

There are also plans for protestors to gather close to the U.S. ambassador's residence in Regent's Park, where Trump and his wife, Melania, will stay overnight on Thursday.

Some carried placards saying Special Relationship?

He saved his praise for Johnson, who resigned as May's foreign secretary on Monday and who Trump said he would like to meet during his time in Britain.

The Sun had already published audio recordings of key parts of the interview. Since the president will travel by helicopter to locations, it is unlikely he'll actually see the demonstrations. "He's been saying very good things about me as president".
