May Day: Trump blasts British prime minister ahead of meeting

Brexit news Michel Barnier UK EU

May faces a huge task trying to persuade European Union negotiators to accept that the proposals are viable, while also keeping her Conservative party and Parliament on side.

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 that was the birthplace of the British World War Two leader. But Obama's dire warning came from a polar-opposite view of Trump's - that Brexit itself would be the impediment. Mr. Trump said he advised May how to manage Brexit, but she didn't listen.

Trump said that one of them, former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, "would be a great Prime Minister".

"The people voted to break it up so I would imagine that's what they would do, but maybe they're taking a different route - I don't know if that is what they voted for".

During an exclusive interview with The Sun, Trump said her Brexit plans will affect trade with the United States in a negative way.

In a possible bid to win over such opinions, the government said that wherever the United Kingdom participates in an EU agency, it will respect the remit of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

May insisted earlier Thursday that her plan was exactly what Britons had voted for in the 2016 referendum.

He said: 'I am going to a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations'.

Trump will later Friday take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, before spending the weekend in Scotland on a private visit that will likely take in 18 holes at one of the property magnate's golf courses, where more protesters await him.

There were also demonstrations close to Winfield House, the USA ambassador's residence near Regents Park where the president and first lady Melania Trump will spend the night.

Bank of Canada raises rate, predicts economic resilience despite trade risks
The interest charged on this kind of debt typically goes up when the Bank raises its rate. Economists anticipate several more hikes this year and in 2019.

May and Trump are scheduled to hold talks and a joint news conference on Friday.

Labor officials are not talking about their tactics for the coming battles but, according to Politico, have spoken privately about a "coalition of chaos" where their MPs would vote with Brexit hardliners to bring down May's deal in an attempt to destabilize the government and force a new election.

"I don't believe that Michel Barnier will, or will be allowed to, compromise the functioning of the single market or to compromise the functioning of a common customs union". Such a resolution would avoid disruption to automakers and other manufacturers that source parts from multiple countries.

Mr Trump went further and suggested to the Sun Mr Johnson was "a great representative for your country".

Free trade would not apply to services, which account for 80 per cent of the British economy.

It says the new arrangement will give each party autonomy over decisions regarding access to its market, but encompass a broader range of cross-border activities that reflect global financial business models and the high degree of economic integration.

The government's proposal for a new financial services arrangement post-Brexit will effectively make it more hard for Britain's banks, insurers and asset managers to do business across the European Union.

But Mr Trump said the prime minister is a "very good person" denying claims he called her a bossy schoolteacher, or said she was boring.

Other elements likely to anger Brexit-backers are Britain's willingness to pay the European Union for access to certain agencies and the suggestion some European Union citizens could continue to work in Britain visa-free.
