Explainer Why is Northern Ireland such a big deal in Theresa May’s Brexit negotiations

He did have nice things to say about future "great prime minister" Boris Johnson.

He added that there was "a tremendous opportunity to double, triple, quadruple" trade between the United States and the UK.

During the hour-long press conference, Trump went out of his way to praise May, and admitted he had apologised to her for The Sun's front page today.

During his visit, Mr. Trump managed to avoid thousands of protesters in London, Scotland and around the country.

She was responding to a question about whether her latest Brexit proposal - which includes a "common rulebook" with the European Union - would make it impossible for the United Kingdom to make its own trade deals.

Trump blasted May's actions on Brexit in the interview, and he suggested her approach to negotiating a Brexit deal with the European Union could "kill" a trade deal with the United States.

"If they do that, then their trade deal with the USA will probably not be made". The band of the Coldstream Guards played the Star-Spangled Banner and she invited the president to inspect the guard of honour. "I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the disgusting things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in". "I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly, whatever they work out". (Until) I remember her desperate rush to invite him, her repeated reluctance to criticise his Muslim ban or caging of children, her chasing him for a bad trade deal.

Farage, a member of European Parliament and former leader of the U.K. Independence Party, said Trump made a decision to "intervene" for two reasons: he believes in Brexit and he feels the USA has been let down. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me".

But as the pomp and ceremony unfolded at Blenheim Palace, the historic birth place of former British prime minister Winston Churchill, an interview Trump had given British tabloid The Sun was published.

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.

"I could fully understand why she thought it was a little bit tough. I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the disgusting things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in".

Mr Trump also suggested the Mrs May "can't walk away" from the Brexit negotiations "because if she walks away that means she's stuck".

May's Brexit plans "will definitely affect trade with the United States, unfortunately in a negative way", Trump was quoted as saying in an interview with Britain's Sun newspaper.

"Almost winking at the big man for a trade deal", someone else wrote.

"I have a lot of respect for Boris".

"@realDonaldTrump determined to insult our PM", said Ms Sarah Woollaston, a Conservative MP and chairman of Parliament's Health Committee.
