Trump blames Theresa May for Brexit debacle in explosive interview

"If they do that, then their trade deal with the U.S. will probably not be made".

May's critics have said, however, that she reins in criticism of Trump because of the strong desire of many in her Conservative Party to reach a trade deal with the United States after Brexit.

"But the other people who will be saying this is really good news for us are the "remainers" in the European Union, because when the United Kingdom delegation goes to Brussels next week to sell the idea that it's going to be really hard for the EU to resist the temptation to say to them 'look, you think dealing with us is hard, how do you feel about dealing with him?'"

U.S. President Donald Trump kicked off his visit to the U.K.by knifing his host, Prime Minister Theresa May, in the front.

He told The Sun the PM's plan would "probably kill the deal" as it would mean the United States "would be dealing with the European Union" instead of with the UK.

She added: 'If signing up to the Trump world view is the price of a deal, it's not worth paying'.

The customs union is one of the cornerstones of the EU and it allows for the tariff-free movement of goods among member states.

As many as 100,000 people are expected to turn out in central London for an anti-Trump rally. The president opened the day by reviewing a private military exercise alongside May at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

Trump said, however, that he "feels unwelcome" in London due to the thousands of people expected to protest in the British capital, as well as other cities. May had used the Blenheim black tie dinner with political and business leaders to press Trump on the benefits of a free trade deal after Brexit.

He also suggested former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson would make a great prime minister.

On Johnson, Trump said: "I have a lot of respect for Boris".

"I would say Brexit is Brexit", he added. "As he said in his interview with the Sun she "is a very good person" and he 'never said anything bad about her, '" Sanders said in a statement.

President Donald Trump will get the red-carpet treatment on his brief visit to Britain beginning today: military bands at a gala dinner, lunch with the prime minister at her country residence and tea with the queen at Windsor Castle before flying off to one of his golf clubs in Scotland.

Trump also denied a Washington Post report that he called May a "bossy schoolteacher". "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism".

His departure from the USA ambassador's residence aboard the presidential helicopter was met by jeers from demonstrators banging pots and pans, and another group of protesters lined roads near the palace.

Smirking at his wife's welcoming gesture, Trump at first seemed to keep his hand by his side. Police worked overtime, their days off canceled.

"I am going to a few hot spots", he told journalists.

The state visit has never been scheduled - there is fierce opposition to it in many quarters of Britain - and this trip is part of a working visit instead, meaning, among other things, that Trump will overnight at Winfield House, the US ambassador's handsome residence near Regents Park rather than in Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle as a guest of the queen.

The mood was far less jovial in Belgium earlier in the day.

Trump had already cast doubt on May's Brexit plans earlier in the day after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, where he provoked a crisis session to force allies to raise their defence spending.
