He claimed he was not trying to pit Johnson against his host, but added: "I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister".

"So I would imagine that's what they will do, but maybe they will take a little bit of a different route".

"We are committed to dialogue, including of course with those we strongly disagree with, and in government, we would find a way to work with his administration while also standing up for our values", he said, according to BBC News. I was very saddened to see he was leaving government and I hope he goes back in at some point.

"It's an opportunity to reach a free trade agreement that creates jobs and growth here in the UK and right across the United States", May told the guests at Blenheim Palace.

In an interview with Britain's Sun newspaper published late on Thursday, Trump said May's plans for a business-friendly Brexit would leave it too close to the European Union to allow a new trans-Atlantic trade deal to be struck. Everyone would think he'd gone mad.

He is to have tea with the queen at Windsor Castle on Friday, hold a tete-a-tete with May at the prime minister's official country home, Chequers, and then depart for Scotland, apparently to play golf at the Trump resort in Turnberry.

US Lawmakers in Moscow Set Stage for Trump-Putin Summit
Putin is known as a shrewd negotiator who some officials worry could exploit such a session and extract concessions from Trump. Trump has been searching for improved rapport with Russian Federation since his election to the presidency in January 2017.

The biggest protests will be on Friday, when tens of thousands of people are expected to march through central London and converge on the iconic Trafalgar Square.

The two leaders have been highly critical of each other, with Trump going after Khan a year ago in the aftermath of a terror attack in London.

A top-ranking officer has apologised after it was revealed police securing Donald Trump's visit to the United Kingdom were being forced to sleep in conditions described as an "absolute disgrace". You can read terms of service here. Look at what is going on in London", Trump said, before referring directly to Khan: "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism.

After the story was published, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the president "likes and respects Prime Minister May very much", adding that he said in the interview she "is a very good person", and that he "never said anything bad about her". But, he said, "Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame". I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you'd like.

"He's fundamentally damaging the culture, the discourse, the rules, the laws", said Calah Singleton, a 28-year-old writer who turned out in London.
