British-US trade deal possible after Brexit, say May and Trump

Christopher Ruddy, a confidant of President Donald Trump's who's the CEO of the news organization Newsmax, described Trump's dinner Thursday with British Prime Minister Theresa May as a "love fest", despite the publication of a controversial interview with a major British tabloid in which Trump criticized May's approach to Brexit and endorsed one of her political critics.

He told The Sun newspaper that May's plan would "probably kill the deal" as it would mean the U.S. "would be dealing with the European Union" instead of with the UK.

Other politicians within May's Conservative party criticized Trump for insulting the prime minister as she hosted him for part of his four-day trip to Britain.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, (there is) no reason for me to go to London", he told the Sun newspaper.

Just hours before his first official visit to the UK, Mr Trump warned the soft-Brexit deal thrashed out by Mrs May could kill a major trade relationship with the USA, claiming he would "absolutely" be prepared to walk away if it went ahead.

President Trump also told The Sun London Mayor Khan has "done a very bad job on terrorism" by allowing so many migrants to come to the city.

Opponents of US President Donald Trump inflated a 6-meter (20-foot) blimp of the US leader as an orange, diaper-wearing baby carrying cellphone next to British parliament on Friday.




The blimp is part of a series of protests across the United Kingdom organized by the Stop Trump Coalition, which describes itself as a "coalition of organizations and individuals joined forces to protest against Donald Trump's planned visit to the UK".

Mr Trump said he thought Mr Johnson would make a "great Prime Minister" and that he was "saddened" the former foreign secretary was out of the government.

Later in the press conference, Trump slammed reporter Kristen Welker after a question about Russian Federation.

He added, "I said, 'Brexit will happen.' The vote is going to go positive, because people don't want to be faced with the disgusting immigration problems that they are being faced with in other countries". "Right now we're going to be talking about some things taking place in the Middle East and elsewhere". I think she's doing a terrific job.

There's a new petition calling for the baby balloon to be taken to Scotland and for it to fly over the golf course where Trump will be present on Saturday.

But on Friday, Trump said that after speaking with May and her advisers he had been convinced a trade deal "absolutely will be possible". "I think he is a great representative for your country", Trump told the newspaper.

So, does that mean if we make him feel unwelcome in the United States, he won't stay here? One protester is even gathering attention on social media after coming dressed in a "Trump Dalek" costume to an anti-Trump protest. I'm sorry, I was wrong to say the things that I said would be an apology.
