Trump praises British PM Theresa May after criticizing her in newspaper interview

After Donald Trump's interview was published, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the president "likes and respects Prime Minister May very much", adding that he had "never said anything bad about her".

Farage, a member of European Parliament and former leader of the U.K. Independence Party, said Trump chose to "intervene" for two reasons: he believes in Brexit and he feels the USA has been let down.

Trump then heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

The president, whose mother was born in Scotland before immigrating to the USA, will also be greeted by protesters, as several large demonstrations are planned in various Scottish cities.

But on Tuesday, as the first couple crossed the South Lawn of the White House to board Marine One, Trump held Melania's hand firmly.

Trump watchers have kept a close eye on the first couple's public displays of affection, especially after the first lady was caught on camera clearly swatting away her husband's hand during a trip to Tel Aviv, Israel in May of a year ago.

Mr Trump's visit came as watchdog Scottish Natural Heritage found the Trump International Links has "partially destroyed" the specially protected site it was built on.

Trump, a golf enthusiast who owns numerous courses around the world, has reportedly played more than 100 rounds since he took office in January 2017, costing taxpayers an estimated $69 million.

He said that May's new, softer approach to Brexit - which would leave Britain sticking to a "common rulebook" with Brussels on goods - would kill off the chances of a much sought-after USA -U.K. trade deal.

Fresh from sending North Atlantic Treaty Organisation into crisis talks and ahead of a summit with Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin, Trump shocked Britain's political establishment when he criticized May's plans for ties with the European Union after Britain leaves in March.

Initially isolated in hospital in Chiang Rai because of fears of infection, the boys have now been allowed to meet their families. A British diver who led efforts to rescue a trapped boys soccer team in Thailand returned to the United Kingdom on Thursday.

"We have this stupidity going on, pure stupidity, but it makes it very hard to do something with Russia because, anything you do, it's like: "Russia, oh he loves Russia", Trump said.

Trump postponed his trip several times as a petition to block him from entering the United Kingdom gained so many signatures that it was debated in parliament.

Tottenham MP Mr Lammy said the president knows full well that Mr Khan is not responsible for the attacks.

He added: "If they go a certain route, I just said that I hope you are going to be able to trade with the United States".

Earlier, Mr Trump said he and Mrs May had spoken for an hour-and-a-half at the black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, which he attended with his wife Melania.

"It is awful to hear the inflammatory language that he uses and I am embarrassed that (Prime Minister) Theresa May has done so much to welcome him". She met Chelsea Pensioners and local children.

"To say the president called us "fake news" with any serious intent is, well. fake news".

He suggested this was not what voters wanted, said he had advised May to take another path and added that Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign minister over the plan, would make "a great prime minister".

Trump described Brexit as a "very tough situation... between the borders and the entries into the countries and all of the things", saying: "The only thing I ask is that she work it out so that we can have very even trade".

"Where are your manners, Mr President?" tweeted Universities Minister Sam Gyimah.
