Theresa May and Donald Trump are holding talks at her country retreat Chequers, following his controversial comments on the Prime Minister’s Brexit plan. In an interview with the Sun, Mr Trump said the Mrs May’s plan would “probably kill” any trade deal with the US.
But today, he said he and Mrs May had “probably never developed a better relationship” than during this trip, which is his first to the UK as president. Downing Street has not yet reacted to Mr Trump’s remarks, but Chancellor Philip Hammond said the talks will be “very positive”.
Theresa May has been making the case for a US free trade deal, and says Brexit is an “unprecedented opportunity” to create jobs in the UK and US.
Meanwhile, a giant blimp of Mr Trump as a baby is floating in central London. It is part of a demonstration in Parliament Square, one of many due to take place across the UK today.
