United Kingdom minister to Trump: 'Where are your manners, Mr President?'

United Kingdom minister to Trump: 'Where are your manners, Mr President?'

On Tuesday, she said: "I'm looking forward to positive discussions with President Trump, there are a lot of issues we'll be talking about".

DONALD Trump today heaped praise on Theresa May but urged her to make sure her Brexit deal lets Britain strike a trade agreement with the U.S. - saying, "That's all that matters".

Trump also chastised May for ignoring his advice on Brexit and not making a credible threat to walk away from talks.

During a press conference Friday afternoon, he denied criticizing May and suggested that the newspaper had left out his praise of the British prime minister.

"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. How can we roll out the red carpet for someone who stands for everything we stand against?" said academic Emily Jones, 40, one of those protesting outside Blenheim Palace.

"We have received him with dignity and generous hospitality, and I hope that that will be the mood music within which there will be the serious discussions we always have in our engagement with the United States".

"Even though he has torn apart the Brexit deal the Prime Minister is hoping to deliver, the relationship between the two of them, whilst unusual, clearly isn't broken given the conservations they've had" over the visit, Swarbrick added.

On Boris Johnson, Trump said again he thought the former foreign secretary would make a great prime minister. He is planning to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin next week.

"I must say, I've gotten to know Theresa May much better over the last two days than I've known her over the a year ago and a half..." "She wanted to go a different route". And that is fine.

A poll on Thursday conducted by YouGov for ITV Tonight showed that only 22 percent of the British public have confidence in May's ability to negotiate with Trump, while 69 percent did not have confidence in her.

He said the EU was "as bad" as China when it came to the way European countries traded with the US. "He obviously likes me and says very good things about me", he added. "I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly, whatever they work out". "I think you are losing your culture".

On his prospects of entering Downing Street at some point, he said: "Well I am not pitting one against the other".

At the Chequers news conference, Mr Trump said he had been responding to the Sun's question about Mr Johnson as a possible prime minister, adding: "He has been very nice to me".

"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".

"This is what people need to be doing - to come together in their communities to organize and work out how to stand against right-wing populism and xenophobia that we're seeing not just in the USA but in Europe", organizer Kevin Smith told The Associated Press.
