President Trump unleashes on British leader - and it’s really bad

Trump also set a hard line on the country's ongoing "Brexit" negotiations, telling the tabloid that he advised Prime Minister May against the "soft" blueprint she recently presented to alleviate economic fallout as the country separates from the European Union.

President Trump criticized British Prime Minister Theresa May's handing of Brexit Thursday, telling The Sun newspaper that her plan was "very unfortunate" and would "probably" kill any possible trade deal between the us and the United Kingdom.

The interview posted online as Prime Minister May welcomed President Trump and the first lady at Blenheim Palace for a lavish gala dinner.

Theresa May's long-awaited plan for Britain's future relationship with the European Union has met immediate resistance from Brexiteers in her own party, with Jacob Rees-Mogg declaring that it failed to respect the result of the 2016 referendum.

Her plans, which also argue for Britain to set its own trade tariffs and open up services markets, are an attempt to meet the demands of businesses, pro-EU voters, Brexit supporters and the European Union, which has warned repeatedly that time is running out.

May's critics have said, however, that she reins in criticism of Trump due to the strong desire of many in her Conservative Party to reach a trade deal with the United States after Brexit.

The open attack on his host during a visit expected to be marked by loud as massive protests was likely to cast a heavy shadow over a planned Friday meeting between Trump and May in London, further chilling an already frosty relationship. "Deals that take too long are never good ones", he said.

Therefore, it calls for a hybrid arrangement that would adopt equivalence but also recognise "extensive supervisory cooperation and regulatory dialogue" between Britain's financial watchdogs and their European Union counterparts.

He also said that he "would have done it much differently", referring to the Brexit plan.

Prime Minister Theresa May's government is trying to satisfy Britons who voted for their country to leave the bloc, but to set an independent course without hobbling businesses, security agencies and other sectors that are closely entwined with the EU.

Asked if the ex-minister could be in No. 10 one day, he replied: "Well I am not pitting one against the other".

Of Johnson, he said: "I have a lot of respect for Boris".

"The government now has got to go back to the drawing board, it has got to reflect on what Brexit actually means", David Jones, a former Brexit minister, told "Briefings on Brexit."

Borrowing one of Mrs May's old slogans, Mr Trump told a Brussels press conference: "I would say Brexit is Brexit".

"I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly", he said.

"He is destroying all the norms of what used to be a great democracy in America and so I'm really concerned about my country and I'm here now and so this is where I have the chance to protest him". "I don't know if that is what they voted for".

Trump also said he doesn't feel welcome in London - and he blames that in part on the city's mayor, Sadiq Khan.

Lorraine Johnston, a lawyer at law firm Ashurst, said Britain was proposing a form of equivalence which gives it what looks like a seat at the European regulatory table, even if they can not order from the menu. Look at what is going on in London. "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism", he said.

"I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important".

Trump blamed the city's woes on immigration, and said it was a "shame" Europe was letting in so many migrants.
