"I was very saddened to see he was leaving government and I hope he goes back in at some point".

In the article, Trump slammed Prime Minister Theresa May's plans for Brexit, while praising her political rival Boris Johnson and saying he'd be a good prime minister.

"Trump, you are not welcome here".

Trump did have complimentary things to say in The Sun interview about one person: Queen Elizabeth II, who he will meet for tea with first lady Melania Trump at Windsor Castle later on Friday.

Addressing the 100-strong group the Prime Minister said there was an "unprecedented" opportunity to do a deal that boosted jobs and growth in both countries.

The Daily Telegraph reports Mr Trump told the Prime Minister to be "brutal" and "tough" in her negotiations with the European Union over Brexit. "We wanted to embarrass him and I think we have done that today". "I think you are losing your culture". It's an accurate representation of his politics which are so immature.

Britons are narrowly in favour of US President Donald Trump airing his views on Brexit, a Sky Data poll suggests. Her Conservative government is deeply split between supporters of a clean break with the European Union and those who want to keep close ties with the bloc, Britain's biggest trading partner.

"I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it's never going to be what it was and I don't mean that in a positive way", the president said. "And that is fine", he said.

Raab took over as minister in charge of Brexit negotiations on Monday, a day after his predecessor David Davis resigned over his disagreement with May's plans to negotiate a "common rulebook for all goods" in a combined customs territory. "I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the terrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in".

The government published its blueprint on Thursday calling for close trade ties with the European Union after it leaves the bloc next March.

May has tried hard to cultivate a good relationship with the wrecking ball President, in large part because Britain needs strong trading ties with the USA more than ever now that it is leaving the EU.

Trump told The Sun that such a deal "will probably kill" any prospect of a U.S. -U.K. free-trade agreement.

Asked about Mr Khan, a member of the opposition Labour Party, Mr Trump was highly critical of the London mayor.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders later sought to limit the damage, saying Trump was "thankful for the wonderful welcome" he received in Britain.

"I have a lot of respect for the prime minister", Trump said.

As the interview began to make waves, Trade Secretary Liam Fox tweeted from the Blenheim Palace event about how Trump had talked "so positively about United Kingdom and USA trade". But Trump said he doubted there would be a "Perry Mason" moment in which Putin would admit wrongdoing.

"It would be better if [the London Mayor] stopped engaging in this war against Donald Trump and got on with ... dealing with the crisis in crime", Farage said, pointing to the vicious attack on former British ambassador to the U.S. Sir Christopher Meyer Wednesday, which took place at one of the capital's major railway stations in broad daylight. Tens of Thousands Of Anti-Trump protesters are expected to demonstrate in London and across the country against the UK visit by the President of the United States.
