Trump praises Queen Elizabeth as 'tremendous woman'

Trump praises Queen Elizabeth as 'tremendous woman'

He told the newspaper that Britain remaining so closely aligned to the European Union under her plans would undermine a United Kingdom -U.S. trade pact - which is seen as one of the biggest prizes after quitting the bloc.

For no apparent reason, he chose to go on the attack against Prime Minister Theresa May, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, and the nation's immigrants - showing that his bigotry crosses borders.

The pound fell 0.6% to $1.31 after Trump's comments, and May's government struggled to put a courageous face on a presidential visit that has veered wildly off course.

In Britain, where sharp differences are often masked by formal politeness, many politicians expressed shock that the United States president could be so downright rude.

Mappin also spoke about the future for Trump and said: "Now he will nearly certainly win the second term. This is not the way you behave", Thornberry told broadcaster ITV. May's Brexit plan drew scorn from across the political divide as being ill-mannered during a high-profile visit.

The trip coincides with a tumultuous week for May after two senior ministers resigned in protest at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves next March.

Donald Trump is set to visit the Queen and Theresa May during his four day official visit to the UK.

Trump also heaped praise on Johnson, May's nemesis who resigned over the "soft Brexit" blueprint on Monday, suggesting he would "make a great Prime Minister".

"The relationship is very strong", Trump insisted, though he did not directly answer questions about the Sun interview.

"If he actually says these things standing next to her [at the press conference], then basically she's toast in terms of the plans that she now has", he said, adding that May is already under "enormous pressure" from her partymates, who are against her deal with the EU.

Chelsea was beaten to the signing of Romelu Lukaku by Manchester United and then Fernando Llorente by Tottenham, for example. The Blues were unable to defend their title, finishing fifth last season and missing out on Champions League.

But the truth is that Trump's attack could weaken May's already fragile hold on power. "But maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route, so I don't know if that's what they voted for".

While the president had no kind words for Theresa May's Brexit plan, he did have them for former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. Johnson, who helped lead the campaign to take Britain out of the European Union, accused May of killing "the Brexit dream".

In other news from this morning's press conference, Trump stunted expectations when he refused to comment on the UK's current Brexit turmoil. "So I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad".

"I think he's got what it takes", Trump said.

During his news conference on Thursday, the USA president also appeared to refer to Ireland as part of the United Kingdom. Melania Trump has heard about the plans and isn't excited about her husband's presidency being see as a 'joke'.

'I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me.

European activists are flying a almost 20-foot balloon depicting President Donald Trump as a baby over London on Friday as the president visits Britain.

Organizers behind the crowd-funded campaign that has raised almost 20,000 pounds (approximately $26,400 USD) announced July 5 that London Mayor Sadiq Khan had agreed to let the group tether the balloon at Parliament Square Gardens.

The bad blood between the pair dates back to the London Bridge terror attack in 2017, when Trump wrote a Tweet criticising the Labour mayor's response.

"The President is racist. He does not deserve to meet our Queen today".
