Donald Trump describes Boris Johnson as future PM and attacks Sadiq Khan

Trump attacked British Prime Minister Theresa May's recently released plan for the U.K.'s departure from the European Union, saying the plan-which keeps Britain closely aligned with the E.U. on certain regulatory matters-would "probably kill" the chance of a trade deal with the U.S.

In an interview with The Sun tabloid published as Trump was attending a gala with May, Trump accused her of ruining what the stood to gain from Brexit and said her "soft" blueprint for the UK's future dealings with the European Union would probably "kill" any future trade deals with the United States.

Trump said that May's plan for a "soft Brexit" could scuttle an American trade deal with the United Kingdom because the the island nation would remain too close with the European Union.

Trump's visit to Britain followed two days of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium, where the USA president shook up the conference with rhetoric about other members failing to meet fiscal defense requirements, the possibility that he could end the United States' 70-year membership in the alliance and Germany being "captive" to Russian energy.

The giant balloon named "Trump Baby" was released near the U.K.'s Houses of Parliament, where "Stop Trump" protesters are marching in central London.

She maintained the government's Brexit agreement "delivers" on the referendum vote.

Trump said that the "special relationship" between the two countries is "a bond that is like no other".

Addressing the 100-strong dinner at Blenheim Palace, the Prime Minister said there was an "unprecedented" opportunity to do a deal that boosted jobs and growth in both countries.

But the Environment Secretary said he was not sure he possessed the "diplomatic skills" to bring Mr Trump round to his line of thinking.

"I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad".

The interview was so surprising, Trump's press officer Sarah Sanders issued a statement overnight Thursday to clarify the president's attitude toward May.

"If you think of it, for so many years she's represented her country, she's never really made a mistake", he said. Protesters against Trump's visit gather near an entrance to the U.S. ambassador's residence in Regent's Park in London on Thursday.

The interview was the latest breach of diplomatic protocol by Trump, whose predecessors tended to avoid criticizing their foreign hosts.

"This is what people need to be doing - to come together in their communities to organise and work out how to stand against right wing populism and xenophobia that we're seeing not just in the United States but in Europe", Smith told AP.

After leaving Chequers, Trump travelled to Windsor Castle to have tea with Queen Elizabeth.

The Sun's write-up of its interview, which was recorded, quoted him describing her as a "nice person" and saying they get along "very nicely".

He also suggested former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson would make a great prime minister. "I get along with her very nicely", Trump said.
