London mayor: ‘I’m not going to rise to President Trump’s views’

Later in the press conference, Trump slammed reporter Kristen Welker after a question about Russian Federation.

"Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place".

After publicly criticising British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that the relationship was "very, very strong".

"Unfortunately a story was done which was generally fine but didn't put in what I said about the PM".

President Trump's complaints about "fake news" are often dishonest.

President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May pledged full cooperation on trade and other issues Friday, easing tensions following Trump's explosive interview in which he criticized her handling of "Brexit" and called into question a USA -U.K. trade deal.

"Let's not forget that the hope of a quick trade deal with the USA was a significant factor in Theresa May's decision to invite Trump in the first place".

In his opening comments at a joint press conference with May, Trump said that "whatever" May decides to do on Brexit is "okay with me, that's your decision". "I didn't criticize the prime minister", he said. "The trade is a little bit tricky".

"This is what people need to be doing - to come together in their communities to organise and work out how to stand against right wing populism and xenophobia that we're seeing not just in the USA but in Europe", Smith told AP. "He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K".

In an interview published Thursday night by The Sun, a British tabloid, President Trump, in his bombastic manner, trashed his British hosts for the next few days while he visits the United Kingdom.

"I would actually say that she probably went the opposite way".

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

She had used the Blenheim black tie dinner with political and business leaders to press Mr Trump on the benefits of a free trade deal after Brexit.

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

But he also said "this incredible woman right here is doing a fantastic job, a great job and I mean that".

"The message we came here to give today is that Trump is not welcome in Britain", said shopkeeper Grish Gregoran, 58, who took the day off to attend.

"When I am asked questions about President Trump I try not to respond and try to be the bigger man".

"Let's go to John Roberts of Fox [instead]".

Younger voters - 18-34-year-olds - backed Mr Trump publicising his views on Brexit by 54% to 40%, compared with opposition by 51% to 46% among those aged 55 and older.

"What he has done, and in particular for me the condescending nature of his comments towards the prime minister. are unacceptable, undiplomatic and counterproductive", Simon Fraser, a former top official at the UK Foreign Office, told Sky News.

But he said he is not attacking Trump in response to the president's criticism.
