In remarks that will likely further weaken May's already tenuous grip on her own government, Trump told The Sun, a British newspaper, in an interview published Friday (13 July) that her proposed "soft" post-Brexit relations with the European Union would scupper a USA trade deal.
"I would have done it much differently".
Criticising May for the warm welcome given to the American leader, he said: "Theresa May has invited President Trump to our country at a time when his unsafe and inhumane policies are putting the lives and wellbeing of millions of people at risk".
May's proposal was finalized Friday and quickly sparked a slew of high-profile political resignations from her Cabinet, including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis, over concerns the plans would leave the United Kingdom too closely linked to the EU.
Separately, Trump also dealt with the ongoing discussions with the European Union on the steel and aluminium tariffs, noting that "Both of my parents are from the European Union, despite the fact they don't treat us well on trade".
He added: "If the EU do not offer the U.S. a better deal on trade, the USA will do something about European cars being imported at a very low tariff".
"I think it's fine", he said. "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism". "I'm very strong on immigration". The Washington Post is totally fake.
Trump said that one of them, former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, "would be a great Prime Minister". Separately, his wife, Melania, will visit war veterans and schoolchildren in a London visit accompanied by Philip May, the prime minister's husband.
"I have a lot of respect for Boris".
Le Drian says Trump only believes in conflictual relationships, and accused him of trying to destroy multilateral efforts to encourage trade, fight climate change and Iran's nuclear activities.
Asked about Johnson, Trump said: "I was very saddened to see he was leaving government and I hope he goes back in at some point. I think he is a great representative for your country".
"I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the awful things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in", he said.
Trumps presidency has recently been marred by the child immigration policy, which saw thousands of undocumented families pulled apart. Organizers now say they hope to take the blimp on a "world tour", following Trump on his worldwide diplomatic engagements.
Mass protests and processions are planned all through Friday at various locations in London, expected to attract almost 100,000 people.
"As he said in his interview with the Sun she "is a very good person" and he 'never said anything bad about her.' He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person", Sanders wrote.
Such comments are likely to be seen as unwelcome by Mrs May, who has already faced significant political criticism for hosting Mr Trump.
The president also took the opportunity to express his "great love for countries in Europe", but claimed that allowing in refugees fleeing conflict and starvation was causing the continent to lose its culture.
"Look around", he said.
