	Donald Trump at Turnberry during the 2016 Presidential race

Both of those accords were the result of years of painstaking diplomacy by European leaders - and Trump unilaterally trashed them.

The US president has angered many in Britain in the last two years with a series of actions and pronouncements.

Asked about his views on the UK's plans for Brexit, Mr Trump made it clear he believed Mrs May was not delivering Brexit, although insisted that it was not up to him to tell Britain what to do.

Before the Sun interview was published, May invoked Winston Churchill as she addressed Trump and business leaders at a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, the grand 18th-century country house which was the British World War Two leader's birthplace. Mr. Trump has been a keen supporter of Brexit and on Thursday he appeared to echo those concerns.

'Policies that are having very real impacts on real lives not just in the U.S. but all over the world'. But on Thursday they said they welcomed the plan and would study it closely.


"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal", Trump told the Sun, referring to May's Brexit proposals.

That turmoil includes the resignations of May's Brexit and foreign ministers over her plan to retain close ties with the European Union after leaving the bloc in March.

He added that former foreign secretary Boris Johnson would make a "great prime minister", saying "I think he's got what it takes". She also said that it's an opportunity to strengthen cooperation on security.

Outside the mansion, near Oxford to the northwest of London, a couple of thousand demonstrators lined the road and booed Trump's arrival, one of over 100 protests police expect to take place during his four-day trip.

The state visit has never been scheduled - there is fierce opposition to it in many quarters of Britain - and this trip is part of a working visit instead, meaning, among other things, that Trump will overnight at Winfield House, the USA ambassador's handsome residence near Regents Park rather than in Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle as a guest of the queen.


Khan gave protesters permission to fly the 20-foot-tall balloon, depicting Trump as an angry baby in a diaper.

Yet according to David Wemer of the Atlantic Council, a new U.S. -U.K. trade deal isn't a high priority for the Trump administration. The Conservative MP said that Trump would negotiate Brexit "bloody hard", adding: "There'd be all sorts of breakdowns, all sorts of chaos".

Despite tensions in the last week, which appeared to be on display at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation when it looked like Mrs May had declined to shake the President's hand, the UK Government rolled out the red carpet for Mr Trump. When he leaves Britain on Sunday, after a trip to Scotland where he owns two golf courses, he heads to Helsinki for a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

May has had to defend Trump's visit in the face of fiery criticism from opposition lawmakers. Although he will visit the United States ambassador's residence, he is largely avoiding central London, where the largest protests are expected Friday.

One person missing at the palace dinner, though, will be the queen, who will be hosting the president and first lady for tea at Windsor Castle on Friday afternoon.
