He also spent time at Chequers, the prime minister's country residence, where he sought to heal wounds inflicted by an explosive newspaper interview in which he had said Mrs May's Brexit plans would kill any trade deal with the U.S. and that Boris Johnson would be a "great prime minister".

Standing next to the Prime Minister today, the President shifted his stance from that in The Sun's world exclusive interview where he warned a softer Brexit would "probably kill" a United States trade deal. Mr. Trump complemented Boris Johnson, who resigned earlier this week from May's cabinet over disputes about Brexit negotiations, saying Johnson would be an excellent prime minister.

The president and his wife were given a red carpet welcome by British Prime Minister Theresa May with a gala dinner at Blenheim Palace on Thursday night. He said Friday that May and her representatives have since reassured him that a trade deal would still be possible.

"I think they like me a lot in the UK", Mr Trump had said in Brussels.

"I used to love London as a city", Trump said. "I haven't been there in a long time". He also told the tabloid that he'd shared advice with May during Britain's negotiations with the European Union and she ignored it. Tens of thousands of people gathered in London for a series of demonstrations against his visit.
