Donald Trump has warned Theresa May her Brexit plan could "kill" any UK-US trade deal because Britain would remain so closely aligned to the European Union. "I would describe it as a love fest between the President of the United States and the British Prime Minister, in terms of their two countries", Ruddy said in an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo on "Cuomo Prime Time".
In fact, much of Britain's division over Brexit which has split the governing Conservative party and the public at large stems from the June 2016 referendum on withdrawing from the European Union not including language about would come next.
Ms May made a direct pitch for a trade deal with Washington, praising the friendship between the two allies, glossing over Mr Trump's previous remarks that Britain was a "hot spot" in turmoil over Brexit.
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. I know they have had a lot of resignations.
"The people voted to break it up, so I imagine that's what they'll do".
Earlier, protester Leo Murray, one of the blimp's "babysitters", said: "We were inundated with messages from friends and allies in Scotland asking us to bring Trump baby up, so we really wanted to make sure that he could be a part of the fantastic spread of protests taking place over the weekend".
Whilst Trump's trip was not the full state visit he was originally promised, he was heralded by military bands on his arrival in the country and at Blenheim, and on Friday he is scheduled to have tea with Queen Elizabeth.
Some 77 percent of Britons have an unfavorable view of Trump, according to a poll by YouGov with 1,648 respondents.
However, while Mr Trump and Ms May exchanged warm words, tens of thousands of protesters marched against the U.S. president through central London, bringing much of the British capital to a standstill.
Late a year ago, Ms May herself criticised Mr Trump for retweeting a message by a member of a British far-right group, and the speaker of parliament has said the president would not be welcome to address the chamber.
United States President Donald Trump said he doesn't feel welcome in London, and he blames that in part on Mayor Sadiq Khan.
"Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future", May added after calling for a free trade agreement with the U.S. after Britain leaves the European Union next March.
Duncan suggested the president had not seen the detail of the plan when he gave the interview on Wednesday, while also stressing that the much-vaunted special relationship was about much more than Brexit.
But Brexit champion Nigel Farage predicted there would be a "real clash" on Brexit.
"To those intent on causing trouble or breaking the law, I simply say: you are not welcome".
It added: "It was the latest worldwide incident to erupt during Trump's brief sojourn overseas, which kicked off with incendiary comments that upended a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and further strained relationships with longtime U.S. allies". He is planning to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin next week.
"If they do that, then their trade deal with the USA will probably not be made".
The biggest protests will be on Friday, when tens of thousands of people are expected to march through central London and converge on the iconic Trafalgar Square.
Trump declared as "fake news" his criticism of May in an early Friday interview in The Sun, eventhough the tabloid released a recording of the session.
While tens of thousands of protesters staged demonstrations across the United Kingdom against Mr Trump's views and politics, he met the Queen at Windsor Castle as the official part of his whirlwind visit to the United Kingdom drew to a close.
He then travels north to Scotland where he will spend the weekend privately, joined by son Eric Trump.
