Donald Trump snubs Michael Gove in press conference

Donald Trump snubs Michael Gove in press conference

British Prime Minister Theresa May has undergone months of political turmoil over Britain's planned exit from the European Union, and French President Emmanuel Macron is expected to use the 75th anniversary of the World War II battle that turned the tide on the Western Front to call for strengthening multinational ties the U.S. president has frayed.

But in a bid to embarrass both Trump and Johnson, campaigners have uncovered a clip of the then mayor of London saying some less than complimentary comments about the U.S. president - and projected it on to Big Ben in time for his visit to the UK.

"I think we'll have a very, very substantial trade deal, it'll be a very fair deal, and I think it's something we both want to do", he told May and business leaders, at the start of a roundtable meeting.

Comments from Boris Johnson about Donald Trump projected on to Elizabeth Tower.

When asked if he would be open to meeting with Khan, Trump said Sunday, "No, I don't think much of him".

He said later he thought Markle would be "very good" as a royal and claimed he only meant her comments were "nasty". "I don't know that he is going to be chosen, but I think he is a very good guy, a very talented person".

Mr Trump thanked Mrs May for doing a fantastic job. "Let's do this deal", he said.

May has been dogged by her failure to achieve Brexit and is stepping down this week as head of her Conservative Party but will remain as prime minister until her successor is chosen.

Manchester United in ‘pole position’ to sign James Maddison
Maddison joined Leicester from Norwich 12 months ago in a £20m deal and penned a five-year contract worth around £50,000-a-week. If City do sell both Delph and Danilo in this transfer window, you would expect them to sign at least one new full-back.

The 93-year-old said the countries were celebrating an alliance which had ensured the "safety and prosperity of both our peoples for decades", as Trump described the Queen as a great lady and praised the "eternal friendship" between the two countries.

"Nothing has been fixed yet".

The president also met Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage and Eurosceptic Tory former Cabinet ministers Iain Duncan Smith and Owen Paterson during his visit.

Trump said the two countries could do two to three times that amount of trade they're now conducting.

Hunt met the US leader on Tuesday and Sky News reported that Trump also briefly met interior minister and another leadership contender, Sajid Javid, on Wednesday.

Mr Trump's efforts to engage with the Tory leadership contenders is a sign that the White House is already preparing for Mrs May's departure from Number 10. The former Boris Johnson ally is running against the prominent Brexiteer on his own no-deal Brexit stance - a position Trump endorsed ahead of his visit to the United Kingdom when he told The Sunday Times the next prime minister should simply "walk away" from Brussels if the European Union refuses to budge.

"That's something that I would not consider part of trade".
