Trump says he feels 'unwelcomed' in London, blasts mayor Sadiq Khan

14 July 2018

President Trump denied criticizing British Prime Minister Theresa May when taking questions from the press Friday, despite there being easily accessible audio of his scathing interview with British tabloid The Sun.

The British government's new blueprint for Brexit is a "real blow" to London's all-important finance sector as it will damage jobs, tax revenues and growth, a City official said Thursday (Jul 12).

Farage, a member of European Parliament and former leader of the U.K. Independence Party, said Trump made a decision to "intervene" for two reasons: he believes in Brexit and he feels the USA has been let down.

Despite the resignation of two pro-Brexit Cabinet ministers and a growing rebellion from within her own party, Mrs May published a 98-page "white paper" setting out in detail the deep trading partnership Britain wants with the EU. "It was, I think, a celebration of the very special relationship the United States had". "I have a lot of respect for the prime minister".

"There are some proposals that will concern other European Union countries because the single market and the four freedoms that are part of that; that are indivisible in most people's eyes are a very important part of the privilege of European Union membership", said Mr Coveney.

"I didn't criticise the prime minister".

He paid a brief visit to the US ambassador's central London residence before taking a helicopter to Blenheim Palace ― the monumental house where Winston Churchill was born― for a lavish dinner event with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

"I predicted Brexit. I was cutting a ribbon for the opening of Turnberry - you know they totally did a whole renovation, it is lovely - the day before the Brexit vote", Trump said. I think she is a nice person.

His visit has sparked opposition since May invited the president to a prestigious state visit when she became the first world leader to meet Trump at the White House following his inauguration.

Newly appointed Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said the plans called for an "innovative and unprecedented economic partnership" between Britain and the EU.

Fresh from sending North Atlantic Treaty Organisation into crisis talks and ahead of a summit with Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin, Trump shocked Britain's political establishment when he criticized May's plans for ties with the European Union after Britain leaves in March.

That's right, folks, the only relationship advice that matters right now is that you have to find someone who looks at you the way Theresa May looks at Trump.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who was criticised by Trump in the Sun interview for failing to control crime and prevent militant attacks, gave his blessing for the blimp to be flown and rejected suggestions this showed a lack of respect to the US president.

Trump's interview with The Sun was full of provocative statements. "So if this was a strategy to get a better trade deal, he can't get one at this point", Brennan said.

Charlie Moffitt, a 16-year-old student who was wearing a red "Make America Great Again" cap, said: "At a time when we are leaving the European Union we need to be close to our most important ally".
