Trump tries to ease tensions with May after incendiary interview

Asked about that interview, Trump said he did not criticise the prime minister and was gushing in his praise of his host, saying she was tough and capable. "I have a lot of respect for the prime minister", Trump said.

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said the United States president "now chooses our leaders".

The British government released detailed plans Thursday for what it called a "principled, pragmatic, and ambitious" Brexit - plans that already triggered the resignation of two top ministers and split the governing Conservative Party, and which face likely resistance from the European Union. I think she is a nice person.

"The plan envisions that we will still participate in EU agencies that provide authorisations for goods in highly regulated sectors - namely the European Chemicals Agency, the European Aviation Safety Agency and the European Medicines Agency - accepting the rules of these agencies and contributing to their costs".

Shortly after Trump's comments were posted by The Sun, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted her boss holds his United Kingdom counterpart May in high esteem.

Trump claims the report was "fake news" but doesn't specifically deny any of the published comments.

Russian Federation and Iran have provided critical military support to help the Assad government turn the tide of the war. Comments by some USA officials have also indicated what might be an emerging compromise among the key players.

"I said Brexit will happen and it did happen", he added.

However, Foreign Office Minister Alan Duncan appeared to defend the president's stance - and soften the blow on May's Brexit deal - saying this morning that when Trump criticised the deal, he had not actually seen the finer details of the white paper.

"If they do that, I would say that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States", Mr. Trump added.

As Trump and May held a press conference in the United Kingdom, the former was asked if he "changed his tune" after his interview with The Sun where he slammed May's policies and threatened to pull a U.S. -U.K trade deal off the table.

May batted away questions about Boris Johnson, her former foreign minister who resigned last week after she announced her plan for a "soft" Brexit.

He told ABC News his company, IncredibleGifts, typically imports the red hats from China and embroiders them in the U.S. China imported American goods worth $13.6 billion in June while exporting $42.6 billion to the United States.

"We stand by our reporting and the quotes we used - including those where the President was positive about the Prime Minister, in both the paper and in our audio - and we're delighted that the President essentially retracted his original charge against the paper later in the press conference". Mr. Trump said he advised May how to manage Brexit, but she didn't listen.

But on Friday, Trump gave a press conference with May in which he said on Brexit, "Whatever you're going to do is OK with us".

President Trump's remarks to The Sun provoked fury from leftist British lawmakers, who branded his distress at seeing millions of third world migrants pour into Europe "racist", and said the President's criticism of London Mayor Sadiq Khan's stance on terror was "Islamophobic".

"I love the United States but I love getting along with Russian Federation and China and other countries".

With tens of thousands of protesters due to greet him in the capital today, the president said he was pleased not to be spending much time in London during his three-day trip to the UK.
