"It is terrible to hear the inflammatory language that he uses and I am embarrassed that (Prime Minister) Theresa May has done so much to welcome him". He dismissed the interview, conducted by a Rupert Murdoch-owned publication, as "fake news" saying it didn't include his comments praising May.

But standing alongside Mrs May after the meeting at her country residence, Mr Trump praised her as an "incredible woman" and a "very tough negotiator" who was "doing a fantastic job", and said there could be a "great" trade deal between the U.S. and UK.

"I didn't criticize the prime minister".

In his opening comments at a joint press conference with May, Trump said that "whatever" May decides to do on Brexit is "okay with me, that's your decision".

A US-UK trade deal "will absolutely be possible", US President Donald Trump has said, after he told The Sun that Theresa May's Brexit plan could kill an agreement. If signing up to the Trump world view is the price of a deal, it's not worth paying", she tweeted, adding that Trump was "determined to insult" the prime minister."Our prime minister is so weak she still rolls out the red carpet for a man who does nothing but insult her. May and added: "I also said that this incredible woman, right here, is doing a fantastic job, a great job".

Donald Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday for his first visit as U.S. president, flying into a whirlwind of protests.

Blimp organizer Leo Murray told CNN the giant balloon had been created to speak to Trump "in a language that he understands, which is personal insults".

Ms May also thanked the US President for his support over Russia, which Britain has blamed for a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in south-west England in March.

Reporters were shooed out of the room as the first lady engaged the group in a discussion about "Be Best", a campaign she unveiled in May to focus on childhood well-being and to teach them kindness. The proposal has infuriated hardline Brexit MPs.

During Friday's news conference, Trump spoke about how immigration is detrimental to Britain.

"I didn't criticize the prime minister". I have a lot of respect for the prime minister, and unfortunately there was a story that was done which was, you know, generally fine, but it didn't put in what I said about the prime minister.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, (there is) no reason for me to go to London", he said. And in turn, Donald Trump has had very harsh words to say about Khan.

Earlier, Mr Trump said he and Mrs May had spoken for an hour-and-a-half at the black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, which he attended with his wife Melania.

Chelsea set to confirm Conte’s departure
Chelsea began a terse, four-sentence statement on its website, " Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company". Conte's average of 2.14 points per game in the Premier League is bettered only by Alex Ferguson (2.16) and Guardiola (2.34).

"Fortunately, we tend to record stories now so we have it for your enjoyment if you'd like it", he said.

During a press conference on Friday afternoon, the US President said a trade deal between the United Kingdom and the US "would absolutely be possible" after Brexit, despite telling The Sun that May's negotiating position had ruled one out.

Trump arrived in Britain on Thursday after rattling a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit with complaints about the military alliance.

"The other 28 countries have put in $34 billion more in to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. I think you're losing your culture". "I could fully understand why she thought it was a little bit tough", he added.

Prime Minister May said they had discussed plans for an "ambitious" trade agreement. "They charge us tariffs on cars far greater than we charge them". Trump said he would bring up the issue of nuclear disarmament with Putin. May during which he also described U.S. -Britain relations as "the highest level of special". "I don't think we see it as rude". Sadiq Khan - this, I think, helps him. He's been very nice to me.

'The way he talks about the LGBT and immigrant communities is not on and I wanted to come here with like-minded people and show some solidarity'.

Speaking a few moments after Trump, May had a completely different message. May pursued her strategy, the US probably wouldn't sign a trade deal with Britain.

"Over the years, overall, immigration has been good for the UK".

"What is important, is to control the borders and determine who comes into our border", she said.

Then he left to have tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

Trump and May, who were seen holding hands while strolling around the country estate as farm animals brayed in the distance, differed in both substance and style in the news conference. The queen navigated her way around him.

The Queen chatted with the Trumps as planes were heard overhead.
