Trump in the UK: What now for the 'special relationship'?

Following talks with the prime minister at her Chequers country retreat, the US president backtracked on his claim Mrs May's Brexit blueprint will "kill" hopes of any future US-UK trade deal and hailed US-UK ties as the "highest level of special".

In his interview with The Sun, Trump slammed May over her "soft" Brexit plan, which has put May's standing as the head of the Conservative Party in jeopardy.

May about how she should negotiate with the European Union but he didn't say what he'd advised. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me ..." She wanted to go a different route ... "I don't think we see it as rude". "I have a lot of respect for the prime minister".

At the Chequers news conference, Mr Trump said he had been responding to the Sun's question about Mr Johnson as a possible prime minister, adding: "He has been very nice to me".

Meanwhile, the Sun, the source of Trump's so-called "fake news", uses its front page to defend its scoop from the previous day.

However, U.K. -based stakeholders won't like the "facilitated customs arrangement", which would allow the nation to remain in the E.U. customs union, but in turn, would mean paying both U.K. and E.U. tariffs for goods entering Britain.

On Friday, Trump said that at a gala dinner at Blenheim Palace the night before he and May spoke for nearly 90 minutes and had "probably never developed a better relationship".

At the news conference, Mr Trump said: "The relationship between our two nations is indispensable to the cause of liberty, justice, and peace".

"Trade is one of the top items for discussions between the president and the PM today and. we are confident that we can do a good trade deal with the USA", the spokeswoman told reporters.
