Donald Trump's kind-of, sort-of apology to Theresa May

Donald Trump with Theresa May

Trump directly criticised May's plans to leave the European Union in an interview with the Sun newspaper, saying it had probably killed off hope of a U.S. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", Trump said, noting that negotiations had gone on "too long".

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". "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"'.

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.

Meanwhile, shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry said the Prime Minister May "should be standing up to [Mr Trump]" after he "slagged her off", instead of holding his hand.

"I would say I would give our relationship in terms of grade the highest level of special", Mr Trump said.

Al Jazeera's Neave Barker, reporting from London, said Trump is seen as a "divisive figure" by the protesters.

The President and his wife will travel to Windsor on Friday afternoon to meet the Queen, before flying to Scotland to spend the weekend at Trump's Turnberry golf resort which will be private.

The comments, made in an interview with tabloid newspaper The Sun, were published Thursday night, just as Trump and May were wrapping up dinner after a red-carpet reception at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire. I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister.

Dollar said that the institutions could start helping North Korea with technical assistance and training "even before they are members".

Touching on Mr Khan's office approving the Trump baby balloon, he said: "I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important".

"If you reported them that's good", Mr Trump told the political correspondent.

The press conference kicked off with the PM telling reporters from the United Kingdom and U.S. that a trade deal between the two countries would be discussed after Brexit.

Last week at the same location, May finally won agreement for her Brexit strategy from her cabinet but within days, two senior ministers quit, which Trump said earlier in the week had left Britain in turmoil. "I think she represents her country so well". Immigration was "very bad for Europe", he said, citing recent terror attacks.

That's right, folks, the only relationship advice that matters right now is that you have to find someone who looks at you the way Theresa May looks at Trump.

"I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad", he said.

Donald Trump and Theresa May walk out together to begin their joint news conference.

He also refused to take a question from CNN, saying: "CNN is fake news, I don't take questions from fake news".
