The US President said: "I used to love London as a city".

Melania Trump will arrive in England from Brussels today with Donald Trump ahead of a visit which will be marked by protests, a "Go Home" van driving around Westminster - and a six-metre tall orange inflatable baby.

"I actually told Theresa May how to [conduct the Brexit negotiations] but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", Trump added.

For those of you fortunate enough to have missed it, it behooves us to inform you that Donald Trump is in town. I never said anything bad about her", Trump told The Sun, sticking to his usual critique of the newspaper: "That is fake news.

Trump, who has linked his own election to the June 2016 referendum in which a majority of British voters supported leaving the European Union, complained, "The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on".

May likewise glossed over the comments in the Sun. "I am very strong on immigration".

Mass protests are expected to greet the U.S. President, Donald Trump on his visit to the U.K.as he begins his official four-day tour Thursday. The dinner offered much of the pomp and circumstance of a state visit - with a military band, red carpet and ornate surroundings - even though Trump's stop in the United Kingdom is officially not.

Trump also refrained from openly endorsing U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership but praised the former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who resigned Monday in protest at the Brexit deal May presented to the cabinet over the weekend for being "weak".

He added that he would like to meet Mr Johnson while in the UK.

He complained that the soft Brexit plan was a contentious move against the USA because the European Union "is very bad to the United States on trade".

Trump first met May Thursday night and the pair spoke for about 90 minutes and attended a state dinner. The U.S. President also noted that her rival Boris Johnson would make a "great" Prime Minister, once again slammed the Washington Post and took aim at London Mayor in the bombshell interview. I know they have had a lot of resignations.

Most of the protests against Trump have taken aim and his anti-immigrant rhetoric, as well as his administration's policy of separating undocumented parents and children who cross the USA border.

It comes after London Mayor Sadiq Khan repeatedly called for the president's visit to the country to be canceled.

"There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the United States and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead", the British leader said.

Though White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was quick to issue a statement saying Trump "likes and respects Prime Minister May very much, the prime minister, already on a back foot, will have needed his intervention as much as losing a vote of confidence in parliament". Margot James, a digital industries minister, tweeted, "No Mr. President Boris Johnson would make a awful prime minister".

The newspaper quoted a USA official who said there was "no way Trump will apologise" for what he said in the interview but added "we also don't want to blow everything up".
