Donald Trump told me to sue EU - Theresa May

Donald Trump told me to sue EU - Theresa May

"I'm sure Theresa May doesn't want to split the Conservative Party and therefore she will find that the inevitable outcome of the parliamentary arithmetic is that she will need to change it to keep the party united".

Before leaving Britain for a summit in Finland with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mr Trump breached British royal protocol by publicly disclosing the details of a conversation he had with Queen Elizabeth about the complexities of Brexit.

As always, sensible advice from the Leader of the Free World.


While responding to a question during BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Theresa May said "He told me to sue the EU".

It comes just days after the president declined to say whether Mrs May should remain in post, said he had "always liked" Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over the Chequers agreement, and described the United Kingdom as being in "turmoil".

But the environment secretary said he was not sure he possessed the "diplomatic skills" to bring Mr Trump round to his line of thinking.

Mr Trump also walked ahead and in front of the Queen while inspecting troops, forcing the monarch to awkwardly shuffle around him. He continued: "Errrr she said, "It's a very" - and she's right - "it's a very complex problem", I think nobody had any idea how complex that was going to be".

Some hard-line supporters of the withdrawal, known as Brexit, have criticized May as not being tough enough in talks with the bloc, and Trump's remarks seemed to back them up. He added it was up to May how to handle Brexit, as long as the U.S.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi , D-Calif., was similarly disdainful, saying Trump "had the opportunity to stand up to Putin". Responding to reporters questions on the Russian Federation investigation, President Donald Trump said there was "no collusion".

Theresa May faces Commons showdown with Brexit rebels
In a BBC television interview on Sunday, Mrs May said she understood the strength of feelings driving the Brexit debate. I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister.

"Interestingly, what the president also said at that press conference was, 'Don't walk away".

May didn't elaborate, and it wasn't clear what grounds Britain would have to sue the European Union, how it would work or to what objective.

Asked to rate U.S. -U.K. relations, Trump gave them the "highest level of special". A grassroots group called the People's Motorcade holds protests on one of the roads leading to the club on Saturdays in the spring and summer.

The Brexit Secretary said that the European Union is "slow and not very effective" and warned that Britain benefits the least from its current free trade with Brussels.

May's government was rattled by the departures of Johnson and her chief Brexit negotiator David Davis just days after she appeared to have gained the support of her cabinet.

The US President gave a controversial interview during his visit in which he threatened no deal on Brexit, hailed Mrs May's leadership rival Boris Johnson, and moaned that he felt "unwelcome" in London.

"My message to the country this weekend is simple: we need to keep our eyes on the prize", May wrote on Facebook.
