The US President delivers his incendiary verdict on the prime minister’s negotiating strategy. In an extraordinary intervention timed to coincide with his UK visit, Mr Trump said Theresa May ignored his advice by opting for a soft Brexit strategy. Mr Trump said: “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it likely will would kill any future trade deal with the United States,” Donald Trump warns today.
The SUN Mounting an extraordinary attack on the PM’s exit negotiation, the President also reveals she has ignored his advice on how to toughen up the troubled talks. Instead he believes Mrs May has gone “the opposite way”, and he thinks the results have been “very unfortunate”.
His fiercest criticism came over the centrepiece of the PM’s new Brexit plan — which was unveiled in full yesterday. It would stick to a common rulebook with Brussels on goods and agricultural produce in a bid to keep customs borders open with the EU.
His comments, damaging to the Prime Minster, come as he delivers his most brutally honest verdict yet on Britain in which he also:
Accused EU leaders of destroying its culture and identity by allowing in millions of migrants
BRITAIN is “losing its culture” because of immigration, Donald Trump says. The wave of migrants from the Middle East and Africa is permanently changing Europe for the worse, the US president argued.
“I think what has happened to Europe is a shame. “Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame. “I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was and I don’t mean that in a positive way. “I think you are losing your culture. Look around. You go through certain areas that didn’t exist ten or 15 years ago.”
Tore into London Mayor Sadiq Khan for not standing up to terrorists
DONALD Trump today claims Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is responsible for the terror attacks on the British capital. The Labour heavyweight has “done a very bad job on terrorism” by allowing so many migrants to come to the city, the President controversially argues.
The incendiary remarks are the most vicious in the White House boss’s long-running feud with London’s first Muslim mayor.It began more than two years ago during Trump’s US presidential election campaign when Mr Khan attacked his vow to temporarily ban all Muslims from entering America.
“I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you’d like. You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job.
Blamed Khan for spiralling crime in the capital
“I think Khan has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in.” London was hit by four terror attacks last year — in Westminster, London Bridge, Parsons Green Tube station and a Finsbury Park mosque.
Speaking to The Sun inside the US Embassy in Brussels, the US President also revealed he thinks Mr Khan has shown a lack of respect to America by attacking him personally.
Insisted former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson would make “a great Prime Minister”
The US President says he has ‘a lot of respect for Boris’ and was ‘very saddened’ that he stepped down from his post as Foreign Secretary. Trump described the former Foreign Secretary as “a very talented guy”, adding: “I like him a lot.”

Spoke of his sadness at feeling unwelcome in the capital by anti-Trump protesters
DONALD Trump has admitted he “feels unwelcome” in London as a major security operation was launched for his arrival in the UK today. But the tycoon insists real British people “love the President of the United States”.
Mr Trump told The Sun he will be largely staying away from the capital to avoid huge street protests of up to 200,000 today. But he blamed them on politicians — singling out his nemesis, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
Revealing he has been told of the 20ft “Trump Baby” blimp that will be flown above Parliament Square today, he said: “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London.
“And when I say that I am talking about government because the people of the UK agree with me.”
Of his four-day visit, he added: “Many people are delighted. I get thousands of notifications from people in the UK that they love the President of the United States. They want the same thing I want.” He described a West London pub being renamed The Trump Arms for the duration of the trip as “wonderful”, adding: “I love those people. Those are my people.”
