Theresa May reveals Donald Trump urged her to sue the European Union

U.S. President Donald Trump walks with Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May prior to a joint press conference at Chequers near Aylesbury Britain

Mr Trump said he looked forward to finalising a post-Brexit trade deal with Britain, marking an abrupt change from the Sun newspaper article, which quoted him saying Ms May's strategy would kill such an agreement. During Friday's press conference, Trump repeatedly referred to advice he had given to the UK PM on how she should go about negotiating Brexit.

The president's meeting with her seemed to go well, but some in the British press criticized Trump for briefly walking in front of the 92-year-old queen while they were reviewing an honour guard on the castle grounds.

During the interview, President Trump suggested he would run for a second term in 2020.

The President was also savaged online after he appeared to cut off Her Majesty and then walk in front of her as the pair inspected the guards.

The British government has recently published much-anticipated Brexit plans, which proposes that Britain continues its free-market relationship with the European Union when it comes to goods, but distancing from each other when it comes to services.

Airbus (AIR.PA), Europe's biggest planemaker which employs around 15,000 people in Britain, warned earlier this month that if Britain left the European Union without a deal - a so-called "hard" Brexit - it could result in production at its factories stopping and aircraft being grounded.

The plans have angered many Brexit supporters and have seen the resignation of two prominent Cabinet ministers.

The president later used a news conference with May to play down his earlier remarks, saying he understood why she had found the advice "a little bit tough".

On 14 July 2018, the Daily Mail published an interview Piers Morgan conducted with U.S. President Donald Trump aboard Air Force One, in which the British television presenter posed a number of questions on various topics to the American leader.

Asked to rate U.S. -U.K. relations, Trump gave them the "highest level of special".

"Political uncertainty helps to explain why the pound has not strengthened yet on the back of the government's plans for a softer Brexit", said analysts at MUFG.

She said it would allow the United Kingdom to strike trade deals with other nations, end free movement of people, and end the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.

"Everyone thought it was going to be 'Oh it's simple, we join or don't join, or let's see what happens'".

During an uproarious trip to Europe, Mr Trump has harangued members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military alliance, scolded Germany for its dependence on Russian energy, and shocked Britain by publicly criticising Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy. "If we don't, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all".

However Brexiteer MPs, including arch-Eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg, also took to the Sunday papers to make their opposition to the her approach clear.

He described her as a "Remainer who has remained a Remainer".
