Trump scuppers trade deal with United Kingdom under May's Brexit

May has insisted that her Brexit plan will allow Britain to strike its own lucrative trade deals with countries like the U.S. after her country has left the bloc as planned in March next year.

He also referenced immigration into Europe, saying: "I think what has happened to Europe is a shame".

US President Donald Trump said a free trade deal with Britain might be impossible if it went ahead with Prime Minister Theresa May's proposals for post-Brexit ties with the European Union, in a damaging intervention set to further criticism of her plans.

Referring to May's Brexit proposals, Trump told the Sun, Britain's top-selling newspaper: "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal".

Asked about Johnson's comments at a private dinner two weeks ago that Trump "would go in bloody hard" if he was handling Brexit, the President said: "He is right".

The Sun said its interview with Trump was conducted in Brussels before he left for the British leg of his trip.

"She didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", he told The Sun. May is already believed to be dangerously close to a vote of no confidence by her party.

He added: 'Leaving the European Union involves challenge and opportunity.

Guendouzi, a France U20 global , said that Arsenal is his dream club, one that he wanted to play for since childhood. He only has a year left on his current deal. "I want to work with him." he told Arsenal's official website .

In a statement released late Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said: "The President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much".

Raab took over as minister in charge of Brexit negotiations on Monday, a day after his predecessor David Davis resigned over his disagreement with May's plans to negotiate a "common rulebook for all goods" in a combined customs territory. Its key provision is a "customs arrangement" with the EU that would see the United Kingdom remain largely within the bloc's customs union. "And I said to him, 'This special relationship is better than ever, ' and he said, 'It is.' I could see the chemistry between them was very good", Ruddy said. "But it is too bad what is going on", he told the tabloid.

Mr Trump lavished praise on Mr Johnson, saying he has "got what it takes and I think he has got the right attitude to be a great prime minister". Jacob Rees-Mogg, the chairman of the backbench European Research Group, said the proposals amount to "vassalage" and "a bad deal for Britain".

"I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important".

"While the paper provides an indication that the United Kingdom wants to participate in pan-EU programmes in areas such as science and research, there continue to be too many unknowns on issues such as whether the UK's proposals can deliver continued use of the European Arrest Warrant and what they mean for the future migration of people", Ms Hyslop said. I have just been hearing this over the last three days.

Mr Trump had a lot to say about his friend Mr Johnson, including expressing his sadness that he chose to quit his role in government over the Brexit plan.

"I am not pitting one against the other".

Nick Hurd, Britain's Policing Minister, told parliament police expected more than 100 protests across the country, including two large demonstrations in London on Friday, and there were robust and proportionate plans in place. But Britain said European Union nationals should be able to travel visa-free to Britain for tourism or "temporary business", and there should be measures allowing young people and students to work and study in Britain. "Look around. You go through certain areas that didn't exist ten or 15 years ago".
