President Donald Trump directly criticized Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy, saying it had probably killed off hope of a U.S.
Mr Trump sent shockwaves through Westminster when he gave an explosive interview to The Sun where he said he would have carried out Brexit negotiations "much differently" and claimed the Prime Minister did not listen to his advice.
U.S. President Donald Trump kicked off his visit to the U.K.by knifing his host, Prime Minister Theresa May, in the front.
"We are going to be discussing the real opportunities we have got to have this trade deal coming up when we leave the European Union".
He had used a Thursday morning press conference in Brussels to attack the Prime Minister's Brexit plan and highlight Cabinet divisions.
And the Mayor of London also defended allowing a giant balloon depicting Mr Trump as an angry baby to fly near Parliament.
On Thursday, the protesters gathered by a large metal fence sealing off the USA ambassador's residence in Regent's Park, where the president will spend his only night in London. "I think he is a great representative for your country".
With its straw-blond hair, questionable face tan and unmistakably out-of-proportion hands, a blimp meant to depict President Donald Trump as a screaming baby flew outside the Parliament building in London Friday. Late previous year, May criticised him for retweeting a message by a member of a British far-right group, and the speaker of parliament has said Trump would not be welcome to address the chamber.
May's formal proposals were published on Thursday, but hours later the Sun published an interview with Trump where he appeared to side with the prime minister's critics. "I think it changed the fabric of Europe".
However, the United States president said he wanted May to ensure there are "no restrictions" to trade, in the latest sign that the United Kingdom would have to lower its standards in areas like agriculture in order to strike a wide-ranging trade deal with the US.
And, although he insisted he was not trying to pit Johnson against May, he added: "I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister. I don't think so", Trump said.
Trump told The Sun he plans to avoid the large protests that are expected during his visit, and he also addressed the 20-feet "Trump Baby" blimp that took flight over Parliament Square Friday.
While Trump's trip was not a full state visit, he has been given red carpet treatment including marching military bands.
From there he will be helicoptered to Windsor Castle to meet the Queen.
In contrast to the president's sharp words, Trump's first event in England was an oasis of warm greetings at an evening reception Thursday at Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill, the larger-than-life British leader cited by the president as a model of leadership.
"The Mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms." a spokesperson for the mayor told Huffington Post.
