Trump blasts May's Brexit plan, says it puts trade deal in doubt

The Prime Minister managed to reach a final Cabinet position surrounding the Government's trade policy and desired post-Brexit customs arrangement with the European Union, and crystallised her policy in the Brexit White Paper.

Donald Trump issued scathing criticism of Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy during his visit to Britain, as campaigners planned a mass protest against the United States president on Friday.

Prime Minister Theresa May's government is trying to satisfy Britons who voted for their country to leave the bloc, but to set an independent course without hobbling businesses, security agencies and other sectors that are closely entwined with the EU.

US President Donald Trump said a free trade deal with Britain might be impossible if London went ahead with Prime Minister Theresa May's proposals for post-Brexit ties with the European Union, in damaging remarks that could widen domestic criticism of her plans. Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis quit days after May announced a Brexit deal that was forged at Chequers, the prime minister's country house.

May wants to impress Trump and use the visit to push for a trade deal with the US after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union next year, in a process known as Brexit.

Trump told the tabloid, Britain's best-selling newspaper, that he would have gone about Brexit in a different way.

But Obama's dire warning came from a polar-opposite view of Trump's - that Brexit itself would be the impediment. On Thursday, Mr. Trump shrugged off the planned protests, telling reporters "they like me a lot in the U.K".

He added: 'Leaving the European Union involves challenge and opportunity.

"When a deal takes so long, they never work out very well", Trump said hours before meeting May for dinner.

A trade deal with the United States is one of the main aims of Brexit supporters within Ms May's Conservative Party, who are concerned that she is making too many concessions to the EU. And that is fine, she should negotiate the best way she knows how.

I think she is a nice person.

"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", Trump said of Khan.

Adding to his extraordinary takedown of May, Trump praised Boris Johnson, who stepped down this week as foreign secretary over Brexit.

"I think it's a travesty of British values".

The former UKIP leader did not deny that he was the "guiding spirit" behind the US President's extraordinary intervention and said Trump and his team are: "Probably more Eurosceptic than I am".

In response, May said the proposal was "delivering on the vote of the British people to take back control of our money, our laws and our borders".

Despite chancellor Philip Hammond having made an impassioned speech defending mutual recognition and rejecting equivalence as a land grab in which the European Union could have final say on access just three weeks ago, the government is now proposing "expanded" equivalence to underpin financial services.

As the Trumps dined with the Mays, protests in the British capital took place outside Winfield House, the residence of US Ambassador Woody Johnson.

Director and chief executive Liz Cameron said: "We welcome the detail provided on the UK Government's approach to mobility, including the statement of intent to operate a UK-EU Youth Mobility Scheme and visa-free travel for tourism and short-term business activity. Look around. You go through certain areas that didn't exist ten or 15 years ago".
