'Trump baby' blimp hovers over London's parliament amid protests of his visit

The U.S. President also noted that her rival Boris Johnson would make a "great" Prime Minister, once again slammed the Washington Post and took aim at London Mayor in the bombshell interview.

Trump's comments come after an explosive interview the president conducted with The Sun newspaper, in which he publicly criticised the prime minister's Brexit strategy and suggested it would kill any chance of a US-UK trade deal. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", he said.

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".

On Mrs May's reaction, he added: "She's a total professional because when I saw her this morning I said "I want to apologise because I said such good things about you".

"The vast majority of those who think the government should be working with Donald Trump support the United Kingdom visit, regardless of their own views towards him", the pollsters wrote. One protest group has been given permission for a balloon in the president's image, shaded in orange and dressed in a diaper, known as the "Trump Baby Blimp", to hover over Parliament Square Garden.

We'll go to Britain for more on Trump's visit and the protests after headlines.

"Let's not forget that the hope of a quick trade deal with the United States was a significant factor in Theresa May's decision to invite Trump in the first place".

Trump said he would be spending little time in London because of protests against him planned there, which an include a blimp made to look like an infant version of the president.

"I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the frightful things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in".

Alan Duncan, Foreign Office minister, said he was still confident of a US-UK trade deal and called Donald Trump a "great character". Two years ago, Khan first crossed Trump's radar by criticizing his call for a ban on Muslim immigration to the US.

"The people voted to break it up (Britain's ties with the EU)", Trump told a press conference.

"I do not think it's good for Europe and I don't think it's good for our country", Trump said.

After Chequers, Trump was due to fly to Windsor Castle for tea with the Queen, an interaction upon which Downing Street has been pinning its diplomatic hopes, given Trump's oft-professed love for the royal family. It's likely that this won't be the last we hear from Trump on his trip. "I think it's fine".

Prime Minister May said they had discussed plans for an "ambitious" trade agreement.

He ignited a long-running feud with the London Mayor, who refused to stop the Trump baby from flying in London, accusing him of doing a "very bad job on terrorism".
