"If they do a deal like that", Trump said, "we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom", adding that approach would "probably kill" any future trade deals with the U.S.

The president said Mrs May "can't walk away" from exit talks with the European Union, though suggested she could use other methods to secure a good deal.

"No, if they do that, I would say that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States".

U.S. first lady Melania Trump, U.S. President Donald Trump, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May, and her husband, Philip May, stand on the steps in the Great Court to watch the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards perform a ceremonial welcome.

On the very day when she sought to rally Conservative troops behind her plans for European Union withdrawal, the US President threw his considerable weight behind those who accuse her of betraying Brexit. The photographs showing them holding hands and Mrs May's unexpected offer of a state visit to Britain showed the lengths she was willing to go to demonstrate the closeness of the trans-Atlantic "special relationship".

"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 at the press conference before news of the indictment.

"She should negotiate the best way she knows how. But it is too bad what is going on", he told the tabloid, Britain's best-selling newspaper.

But Trump declined to provide any details about the advice he provided May. "He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me", Trump said. "And it's for President Trump to explain why he singled me as the mayor of London out and not the mayors of other cities and leaders of other cities".


Trump also said that he was "very saddened" to see Johnson was leaving government and said he hoped "he goes back in at some point".

But the model has infuriated many Brexit supporters, and led to the resignations of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis.

While Trump's trip was not a full state visit, he has been given red carpet treatment and is scheduled to have tea later with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, where her grandson Prince Harry married USA actress Meghan Markle in May. But within days, two senior ministers had quit, departures which Trump said earlier in the week had left Britain in turmoil.

He added: "I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad".

"I think she is a nice person. I think they agree with me on immigration", he told media from Brussels on Thursday.

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".

"I predicted Brexit. I was cutting a ribbon for the opening of Turnberry - you know they totally did a whole renovation, it is lovely - the day before the Brexit vote", Trump said.

Marchers who started gathering Friday morning hoisted placards condemning Trump as a sexist and a racist, banged pots and pans, and chanted in anger. She's just an incredible woman. My wife is a tremendous fan of hers. It's disgraceful that after recent harrowing images of children being incarcerated in appalling conditions, taken from their parents, she is now rolling out the red carpet for his arrival.
