Donald Trump calls Queen 'fantastic' ahead of Vladimir Putin meeting

Theresa May and Donald Trump entered a news conference on Friday holding hands and went out of their way to praise one another's leadership, a day after the US president assailed her Brexit strategy and said one of her political opponents would make a good prime minister.

Dr Fox said that ministers had been able to explain details of their plan - which would see Britain maintain a "common rule book" with the European Union covering standards for trade in goods - during their meetings with the president and his officials.

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.

Echoing her was Senator Maggie Hassan who said these recent indictments have deepened her concern regarding Trump's upcoming meeting with Vladimir Putin.

But, as the two leaders stood together for a press conference, Trump said the British leader was doing a "fantastic job". Asked about it, he said he did not criticise Ms.

When the summit was announced, Mr Trump said "getting along with Russian Federation and with China and with everybody is a very good thing", and they would discuss the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine and "many other subjects". Am I allowed to go higher than that?

Prosecutors say weeks later, Guccifer 2.0 referred to a stolen DCCC document posted online and asked the person, "what do u think of the info on the turnout model for the democrats entire presidential campaign".

"I said (to May): "Make sure you have a carve out, you have to have a carve out" - where no matter what happens they have the right to make a deal with the United States. This is an incredible opportunity for our two countries and we will seize it fully".

Trump's comments were condemned by British politicians as it delivered an astonishing political knifing of the already embattled May, comprehensively undermining her fragile position in Britain's tortuous negotiations on leaving the European Union next year.

Rosenstein said he briefed Trump about the indictment before Friday's announcement and that the timing was determined by "the facts, the evidence, and the law".

Though Trump later contradicted his comments by then promising a great USA trade deal, the president made clear his admiration for the 54-year-old Johnson, who Trump said would one day make a great British prime minister.

"I think most people in Britain will think this is that this is a fair, pragmatic and reasonable approach".

Stone, a longtime associate of President Donald Trump and political figure, agreed with the sentiment in a Friday night interview on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time".

Late previous year, May herself criticised Trump for retweeting a message by a member of a British far-right group, and the speaker of parliament has said the president would not be welcome to address the chamber. He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me.

Despite the outcry from Congress, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday the meeting would go on as planned.

The city of London came to a standstill as thousands of protestors flooded the streets, who voiced their opinion against the US President Donald Trump's visit to the United Kingdom.

The president later travelled to Windsor Castle for tea with Queen Elizabeth.
