Donald Trump told me to sue the EU, says Theresa May

British Prime Minister Theresa May warned her divided party on Sunday that there may be "no Brexit at all" if they wrecked her plan to forge a close relationship with the European Union after leaving the world's biggest trading bloc, reports Reuters.

Trump said in an interview published in Rupert Murdoch's Sun newspaper on Friday that May had not taken his advice on Brexit, which was just one of many comments made by the president about her exit plans.

Mrs May on Sunday revealed that Mr Trump had previously advised her to sue the European Union rather than enter into an exit negotiation with the bloc. "Actually, no, no, we are going into negotiations with them".

"Interestingly what the President also said at that press conference was "don't walk away".

The president and Mrs Trump then headed to Scotland where he is expected to spend the weekend on a private visit to his golf resort at Turnberry in Ayrshire.

Donald Trump's four-day "working visit" to the United Kingdom has come to an end after more than 250,000 people were estimated to march in cities across the country and that blimp was hoisted high into the sky.

Trump, however, later denied ever criticizing May, claiming that The Sun failed to include the several compliments he showered May with during his interview.

Announcing his decision to his constituents in the Witney and West Oxfordshire constituency, Courts said he had taken the "very hard decision to resign" so he can express discontent in votes in the House of Commons Monday with the Brexit blueprint agreed at May's Chequers meeting.

Protests began in London Thursday, as President Trump arrived for a quick "working visit" in Britain. The Sun said the interview was conducted Thursday in Brussels, before Trump travelled to Britain.

May said her proposal is the only way to prevent a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland after Brexit, while also protecting supply chains and the jobs that depend on them.

"Unfortunately, there was a story that was done which was generally fine but it didn't put in what I said about the Prime Minister and I said a tremendous thing", he said.

Asked to rate U.S. -U.K. relations, Mr. Trump gave them the "highest level of special". "I say that's not acceptable", Mrs May told Andrew Marr. "She wanted to go a different route", Trump said.

Davis's backing of Trump's dire warning on May's Brexit policy, will further increase pressure on May, who was weakened by Davis's Sunday resignation and further rocked by the resignation of her foreign secretary Boris Johnson on Monday. And as has been his pattern, he defended North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying that while the two men are probably "ruthless", he knows "plenty" of other people who are ruthless too.

And this could lead to a damaging and disorderly Brexit because without this Bill passing we would not be able to retain the benefits of more than 40 existing trade arrangements; and neither will we have the means to protect consumers, industries and workers from being undercut by unfairly traded goods in a post-Brexit Britain.

She added: "But the legacy of Brexit can not be a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland that unpicks the historic Belfast Agreement".

"She's a very smart, very tough, very capable person and I would much rather have her as my friend than my enemy, that I can tell you", he added.
