  • Donald Trump told Theresa May to sue the EU

U.S. President Donald Trump's criticism of British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit policies has damaged the so-called special relationship between the two nations, an expert has said.

Trump, in an interview with the Rupert Murdoch-owned Sun newspaper published just hours before he was due to have lunch with May directly criticised May's Brexit strategy and heaped praise on Johnson, saying he "would be a great Prime Minister".

"My message to the country this weekend is simple: we need to keep our eyes on the prize", May wrote on Facebook.

"We're going into negotiations - but interestingly - what the president also said at the press conference was 'Don't walk away'".

Johnson, one of the most prominent Brexit campaigners ahead of Britain's June 2016 referendum, had said the country could "have our cake and eat it" by retaining close ties to the European Union while also forging ahead with new trade deals with the rest of the world, including the United States.

Fresh from sending North Atlantic Treaty Organisation into crisis talks and ahead of a summit with Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin, Trump shocked Britain's political establishment when he criticised May's plans for ties with the European Union after Britain leaves in March.

The British government has also stepped up planning for a so called "no deal" Brexit that could spook financial markets and dislocate trade flows across Europe and beyond.

"Some people have asked whether our Brexit deal is just a starting point from which we will regress", she said.

Prime Minister Theresa May probably expected a more helpful stance as she welcomed Trump to Britain this week, given that the populist leader has been outspoken in his support for Brexit.

"The prime minister will be hoping for a calm remainder of the visit".

Davis, who quit as Brexit Secretary, used a Sunday Times article to accuse May of making an "astonishingly dishonest claim" that Brexiteers had not come up with an alternative to her plan.

She said that any Commons revolts by pro and anti-EU MPs would risk undermining any chances of a deal with Brussels.

She wrote: "There are some planning to vote for amendments that would tie us to a permanent customs union with the EU".

President Donald Trump paid tribute to the legacy of Winston Churchill on Friday amid questions about whether he's putting new strains on the "special relationship" between the USA and the United Kingdom that was forged more than 70 years ago.

London activists were highly involved in arrangements for protests against Trump's four-day visit to the UK.

The charges were drawn up by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director who is looking into Russian interference in the November 2016 vote and whether any members of Trump's campaign team colluded with Moscow.

Johnson, the face of the Brexit campaign for many has remained silent in public since he warned in his resignation letter on July 9 that the "Brexit dream" was being suffocated by needless self-doubt.
