Trump's claims that he predicted Brexit revealed as 'fake news'

GETTYMay and Trump at Nato

He said that May's new, softer approach to Brexit - which would leave Britain sticking to a "common rulebook" with Brussels on goods - would kill off the chances of a much sought-after USA -U.K. trade deal. "I actually told Theresa May how to do [Brexit], but she didn't listen to me", Trump said in the Sun interview, and then mused that May's Conservative Party rival, Boris Johnson, "would be a great prime minister".

Mr Trump said: "She's a very smart, very tough, very capable person and I would much rather have her as my friend than my enemy, that I can tell you". "Because when I saw her this morning I said I want to apologize 'I want to apologize because, I said such good things about you.' She said, 'don't worry, it was only the press.' I thought that was very professional".

Trump has always been a supporter of Brexit and has expressed enthusiasm for a wide-ranging trade deal with Britain after it leaves the European Union, something heralded by Brexit supporters as being one of the great benefits of exiting the bloc.

Trump also said former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who quit this week over May's Brexit plan, would make a "great prime minister".

The president told Mrs May she had to maintain "momentum" because "if it drags out the deal doesn't get done", according to Mr Bannon.

Trump has sided firmly with Brexiteers, saying what May proposed would hurt the chances of a future trade deal between the United Kingdom and the US. "I don't know (if) that is what they voted for", he added.

The interview, published during a gala dinner May hosted for Trump at Blenheim Palace, appeared to further ratchet up tensions in a relationship that's been fraught since the president assumed office. I haven't been there in a long time. He also took aim again at Khan, saying: "I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad".

The streets of London were packed with protesters Friday as up to 100,000 Brits were expected to publicly express their unhappiness with Donald Trump.

They gathered under a big "baby Trump" blimp, showing him snarling and holding a mobile phone, dressed in only a nappy.

"I think we probably never developed a better relationship than last night", he said.

Trump's interview with the paper came after his contentious meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members in Brussels and ahead of his scheduled visit with Queen Elizabeth II. "The U.S. has always stood by our side as a beacon for tolerance, openness and respect", he said in a statement on Thursday.

We've looked at this before, and though it's rare, there is a clear instance of Trump apologizing - after the Access Hollywood tape, in which he described assaulting women, leaked just before the 2016 election.

Donald Trump has arrived for talks with Theresa May just hours after lobbing a political grenade that has left the Prime Minister badly wounded.
