"Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place", Trump said.

Farage, a member of European Parliament and former leader of the U.K. Independence Party, said Trump chose to "intervene" for two reasons: he believes in Brexit and he feels the USA has been let down.

The criticisms sparked unfavorable comment across the British media, with the Financial Times newspaper writing in an editorial that Trump's criticism "deliberately weakens the United Kingdom prime minister at a time when her government has been rocked by a series of resignations".

In another setback, however, Trump also praised the plan's chief critic, Brexiteer Boris Johnson, saying he was "a very talented guy".

'And now, especially after these two days with your Prime Minister, I would say the highest level of special.

May has defended the plan, saying it delivers "on the vote of the British people to take back control of our money, our laws and our borders".

As the Trumps were meeting the queen, the indictment of 12 Russian military officers for hacking the Democratic National Committee was handed down by the US attorney general.




Ms May and Mr Trump both spoke of the importance of the "special relationship" between their two countries, something that Brexit supporters hope will reap benefits when Britain leaves the European Union, allowing it to forge closer trade ties with the world's biggest economy.

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

Objections to Trump's trip to Britain did not stop there, and those opposing his immigration and other racist policies such as his support for supremacists or right-wing extremists in Britain staged a protest rally in early 2017. "She has got a great and lovely grace about her". "I think it is important for him to see it... it will show the people that he is prejudiced against that we are behind them".

The president in the interview denied that he ever "said anything bad about" May in the interview after The Washington Post reported that he thinks the British leader is a "bossy schoolteacher". "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 used to love London as a city".

Mr Trump has previously spoken of his admiration for the Queen, telling The Sun that she is a "tremendous woman".

Sheila Menon, one of the organizers of the balloon, said this protest has become so popular because "so many people have a very strong opinion about President Trump".
