“[President Trump] sits in Winston Churchill’s chair as a guest of Prime Minister May at Chequers,” she wrote.
It was posted as Trump arrived in the United Kingdom this week, meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May.
Trump said Friday that the United States and Britain could secure a “great” post-Brexit trade deal, adding that she is doing a “fantastic job.” Relations between the U.K. and the United States are fine, and any criticism is “fake news,” he said.
“Once the Brexit process is concluded and perhaps the UK has left the EU, I don’t know what they’re going to do but whatever you do is OK with me, that’s your decision,” Trump said, according to a live feed of his comments.
He added: “Whatever you do is OK with us, just make sure we can trade together, that’s all that matters. The United States looks forward to finalizing a great bilateral trade agreement with the United Kingdom. This is an incredible opportunity for our two countries and we will seize it fully.”
Trump, meanwhile, excoriated London Mayor Sadiq Khan, saying he’s doing a “bad job” on crime and terrorism in the capital. “He has done a terrible job. Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London. I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism,” Trump said, according to The Guardian.
