Donald Trump retweet

US President Donald Trump has said the United Kingdom will "probably not" get a trade deal with the US, if Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan goes ahead.

But well away from the noisy demonstrations, Mr Trump and Mrs May took questions from reporters. During his visit to the country, which included a dinner with Prime Minister Theresa May, Londoners came out in the thousands to protest the US president.

Mr Trump sent shockwaves through Westminster when he gave an explosive interview to The Sun where he said he would have carried out Brexit negotiations "much differently" and claimed the Prime Minister did not listen to his advice.

Mr Trump went on to say Mr Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over the Chequers plan, was "a great representative for your country".

In the interview, Trump also renewed his criticism of London Mayor Sadiq Khan over last year's terror attacks in the capital, saying he had done "a bad job".

"So I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad", he said.

He also pledged to increase support payments for the elderly and to give scholarships or paid apprenticeships to young people.

Mr Trump shook his head, pointed his finger and looked down at his shoes after being he asked if he regrets what he has said while sitting alongside Theresa May and posing for photographs at Chequers, the official residence of the PM. If we don't want to do that, clearly we have got more scope to do trade deals internationally.

"Let me tell you, he's a very talented guy".

Murray, 41, who organized the blimp, told The Washington Post in an interview on Friday that the protesters will be escorting the blimp to meet the president in Scotland.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar on Friday described the British government's white paper on Brexit as an evolution of its position, but not a solution. "That's why we flew over him with a message branding him well below par".

Tens of thousands of protesters marched through London on Friday to demonstrate against the USA president's visit. "I think she represents her country so well", Trump said. "I haven't been there in a long time".
