Trump pays tribute to Churchill amid strains on US-UK ties

US President Donald Trump began a protest-laden trip to Britain Thursday by questioning whether Prime Minister Theresa May will deliver on United Kingdom voters' intentions when they made a decision to quit the European Union.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip May greet US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at Blenheim Palace on July 12, 2018 in Woodstock, England.

His interview likewise came after May recently announced a path forward on Brexit that met criticism from members of her own government, including Boris Johnson, who resigned as foreign secretary on Monday.

They also undermine the prime minister as she faces speculation of a leadership challenge from eurosceptics in her Conservative party following the resignations of Johnson and Brexit secretary David Davis.

He added: "We had a dinner where I think we probably never developed a better relationship than last night".

At a press conference in Brussels following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit there just before flying to London, Trump cast doubt on whether May will deliver on British voters' intentions when they backed leaving the European Union in a 2016 referendum.

Trump, who meets with Putin in Helsinki next week, said he would raise Russia's interference in the 2016 elections but added "I don't think you'll have any "Gee, I did it, I did it, you got me" " response from the Russian Federation leader. It was one of the more than 100 demonstrations planned across the country during his four-day stay. After arriving at London Stansted Airport, Trump was greeted by global trade secretary Liam Fox and travelled to the United States ambassador's residence, where he will spend the night.

After a tumultuous couple years for the "special relationship" between the USA and her closet ally, tested repeatedly by disagreements, the frustration at the street level with Mr. Trump's policies, style and manner manifested Thursday in some demonstrations. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me".

On Friday, Mr Trump will hold talks with the prime minster at Chequers before meeting the Queen at Windsor Castle.

In his Sun interview, Trump said Khan had done "a very bad job on terrorism", which he linked to migration.

A number of people in red jumpsuits and hi-visibility yellow vests with the words "Trump babysitter" written on their backs stood guard inside the cordon that separated he blimp from the crowd.

Such harsh public criticism by a sitting USA president of a British prime minister while on a visit to the United Kingdom publicly undermines May in her party, her country and overseas.

Britain and the USA are the largest investors in each other's economies, with over a trillion dollars of investments between them, Mrs May, said, adding: "The strength and breadth of Britain's contribution to the United States economy can not be understated".

Just hours earlier at a lavish dinner to mark Trump's first visit to Britain as president, May made a direct pitch for a deal with Washington.

"I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the awful things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in", he said.

May has insisted that her Brexit plan will allow Britain to strike its own lucrative trade deals with countries like the U.S. after leaving the European Union in March next year.

"He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K".
