Theresa May Says Trump Advised Her to Sue the EU

May is politically vulnerable because of Brexit, analysts say, and Trump's comments drove nonstop headlines questioning her policy.

A bemused May turned him down.

"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal", Trump said of the prospects for a trade deal with the US.

President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May hold hands at the conclusion of their joint news conference at Chequers, in Buckinghamshire, England, Friday, July 13, 2018.

In an interview with the Sun tabloid, President Trump criticized Theresa May for being too weak in her negotiations with the EU.

In an explosive interview with The Sun newspaper published Thursday - just as May was hosting Trump at a lavish black-tie dinner - Trump said the British leader's approach likely "killed" chances of a free-trade deal with the United States.

The prime minister, criticised...

The plan has triggered two ministerial resignations - of David Davis and Boris Johnson - and a number of Conservative Party resignations.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders later told reporters Trump was "thankful for the wonderful welcome" he received in Britain. Trump conflated immigration and terrorism in the interview, and he said that Khan, London's mayor, had done a "terrible job".

He said: "We need to prepare both the children and their families for the attention they will receive when they come out". Some of the boys lost as much as 11 lb but had started to regain weight in hospital, Piyasakol told reporters.

She said her proposal is the only way to prevent a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland after Brexit, while also protecting supply chains and the jobs that depend on them.

"I would have done it much differently", Trump said in the interview.

The sovereign is above politics and she does not reveal her personal views.

At the same time, May added that Trump adheres to the position that Britain should not abandon Brexit. Trump also claimed that he instructed May on what to do about the current Brexit negotiations, adding that "she didn't listen to me". The visit prompted anti-Trump rallies, and the president stunned the populace with bruising criticism directed at May published in a British newspaper. In a CBS interview Saturday, he called the European Union a trade "foe".

Trump is spending the weekend out of the spotlight, staying at his resort in Turnberry in western Scotland ahead of his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

Mrs May doesn't yet have a Brexit deal with the European Union so the British government has stepped up planning for a so-called "no deal" Brexit that could spook financial markets and dislocate trade flows across Europe and beyond.

Whitehall sources also stressed that the idea of a common rule book had been discussed by Mrs May's Brexit "war cabinet" of which Mr Davis was a leading member.

In an article for The Mail on Sunday, Theresa May warns rebels on both sides of her party that there is no other "workable alternative future trading relationship" to the plan agreed at Chequers, and fleshed out in a white paper this week.
