Donald Trump's Brexit advice to Theresa May

Trump met with Prime Minister Theresa May earlier during his trip for talks on trade, Brexit and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, according to local news reports. "We are cracking down right now on the European Union because they have not treated the United States fairly on trading".

"I think he is a great representative for your country", Trump said, adding that Johnson would make a "great prime minister".

Greenpeace claimed that the protest forced Mr Trump to take cover, with a statement saying "as the glider appears overhead the president can be seen making for the entrance breaking into a trot".

The president said he assumed Putin was ruthless, as he prepared to leave for Helsinki in advance of the summit.

On the prospects of a trade deal collapsing, he added: "I think it's worse for United Kingdom than it is for us because we're doing very well, and we're doing very well at trade, and we're doing incredibly well overall, and we're having the best numbers we've ever had as a country -best employment numbers, best GDP numbers".

"We could probably get along very well". Wearing a white baseball cap reading "USA", he appeared to wave towards protesters chanting "No Trump, no KKK, no racist U.S.", referring to the Ku Klux Klan white supremacist group.

The streets of London were packed with protesters Friday as up to 100,000 Brits were expected to publicly express their unhappiness with Donald Trump. "The weather is attractive, and this place is incredible!"

Police estimate the number of people gathering outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh for the start of the demonstration at up to 3,000.

The demonstrators gathered at The Meadows, a park in the Scottish capital where a giant balloon depicting President Donald Trump as an angry orange baby floated in the air.

People held placards reading "Ex-pat for a reason", "No place for Trump's hate", "Trump, racist warmonger, out!", "Dump Trump", "No trade with Trump" and "Trump kidnaps kids".

Ms May also thanked the US President for his support over Russia, which Britain has blamed for a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in south-west England in March.

Britain's International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said the protesters were "an embarrassment to themselves".

He didn't elaborate. He said that May is "doing a terrific job".

"Some of them are protesting in my favor, you know that?"
