On Thursday, Trump told reporters at a press conference in Brussels that to him, Putin, was a "competitor" rather than an enemy. Instead, he said, May went "the opposite way", and the results have been "very unfortunate".
May said that she "welcomed" Trump's meeting with the Russian president, saying he should go into the summit "as he is", in a "position of strength". "Bring a friend, if you have one", the socialist playwright penned in a note to the conservative prime minister.
"Fortunately we tend to record stories now so we have it for your enjoyment if you'd like it". But we record when we deal with reporters.
Mr Khan said however he planned on being the "bigger man" over the feud and not rise to taunts by Trump. "We solve a lot of problems with the good old recording instrument".
US President Donald Trump blasted British Prime Minister Theresa May, said her recently resigned foreign minister would make a great replacement and criticized the mayor of London as being "bad on terror", in comments published as he made his first trip to the UK Thursday.
The "millions and millions of people" who are immigrating to Europe is "very, very sad", Trump said, telling The Sun that "allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame". In June, after Trump called for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the G7 (after being booted over Crimea), Obama national security adviser Susan Rice called Trump's comments "very destructive".
He also told the tabloid that he had shared advice with May during Britain's negotiations with the European Union, but said May ignored his advice.
"My wife is a tremendous fan of hers".
The interview was so explosive in the United Kingdom that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a late-night statement, clarifying that "the president likes and respects Prime Minister May very much" and "is a really terrific person".
"Some are at 2 per cent, others have agreed definitely to go to 2 per cent, and some are going back to get the approval, and which they will get to go to 2 per cent", he said.
In the interview with Britain's The Sun, Trump said a new trade deal with the United States was unlikely because of May's Brexit negotiation tactics. I never said anything bad about her", Trump told The Sun, sticking to his usual critique of the newspaper: "That is fake news. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", he said.
Brexit hardliners such as Johnson and the former Brexit minister David Davis, who resigned just before Johnson did, see May's plan as a betrayal-they don't want to be aligned with European Union rules at all.
He said the USA "pays tens of Billions of Dollars too much to subsidize Europe" and demanded that members meet their pledge to spend 2 percent of GDP on defence, which "must ultimately go to 4%!" "I think he is a great representative for your country". "I think he's got what it takes".
"I can tell you now that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation now is really a fine-tuned machine". I haven't been there in a long time.
After his comments overnight about his British government hosts, you wouldn't think Donald Trump would be the one to take offence.
But just as the dinner wrapped, and the guests in their tuxedos and gowns left the estate, The Sun ran its interview with Trump. She was hoping to win over critics of her Brexit proposal with the release of a 104-page document outlining details of the plan.
