Thousands of people waving banners and banging pots and pans took to the streets of London on Friday to protest against U.S. President Donald Trump on his first official visit to Britain as president.

During a joint news conference with Ms May, Mr Trump said he had "a lot of respect for the Prime Minister".

"I want Trump to come out and say unequivocally "Russia meddled in our election" and I want him to press Putin on that", Jankowicz said.

Trump added that he wished the Sun newspaper put the "tremendous things" he said about May in its headline, but acknowledged, "That's one of those things".

But by Thursday, leaders from France, Germany and Italy offered no support for Trump's claim that he had wrung new concessions out of the alliance on their military spending.

"When you look at what we have done in terms of Russian Federation, I guarantee that whoever it is in Russian Federation, they are saying: 'Oh, God, do we wish that Trump was not the victor".

Trump told The Sun that if May pursues her "soft" Brexit plan, it will jeopardize any potential trade deal between the United States and Britain. "I think he's got what it takes".

'I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister.

President Donald Trump once again falsely claimed he "predicted" Brexit.

There were no immediate specifics on what Trump said he had achieved, and French President Emmanuel Macron quickly disputed Trump's claim that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies had agreed to boost defense spending beyond their existing goal of 2 percent of gross domestic product.

Trump arrived yesterday at London Stansted airport before attending a black-tie dinner with Prime Minister Theresa May. "I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister".

Dawn Butler, an lawmaker from the opposition Labour Party with responsibility for women and equalities, told TIME: "Theresa May has failed to be a critical friend to Trump".

Trump has sided firmly with Brexiteers, saying what May proposed would hurt the chances of a future trade deal between the United Kingdom and the US.

Trump said he had made a suggestion to May on a negotiating tactic with Brussels that she had not taken because it was "maybe too brutal", but she could still use it if things took a turn for the worse.

NATO, a pillar of the global order, emerged from a two-day confrontation with President Donald Trump on Thursday intact but distracted and shaken, a further challenge to the alliance as it faces an expansionist Russian Federation and growing authoritarianism among some of its own members. He's been very, very nice to me and very supportive.

Trump said his statements to The Sun were based on reports he had read that indicated free trade would likely not be possible with Britain after it leaves the EU.

In the interview, which took place at the U.S. Embassy in Brussels, the president also lashed out at the Muslim mayor of London, saying he had done "a bad job".

"I know Londoners are resolutely opposed to the politics of fear and despair".

The president slammed Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, a city that has been the target of several terrorist attacks in recent years: "I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you'd like".
