US President Donald Trump's four-day working visit to England to meet British Prime Minister Theresa May resulted in massive protests with thousands of people taking to the street and mocking Donald Trump. In a Good Morning Britain video clip obtained by The Mirror, Trump refused to say what he talked to the Queen about, but insisted that she is "beautiful" both "inside and out".

Trump went on to ominously and vaguely criticize immigration, declaring, "I think they better watch themselves because you are changing culture, you are changing a lot of things".

Earlier today Mr Trump heaped praise on Mrs May, but urged her to make sure that her Brexit deal lets Britain strike a trade agreement with the United States - saying, "That's all that matters". She's a very special person... when I say handsome - inside and out.

At Chequers, he said the PM was "incredible" and "doing a fantastic job", adding that, regarding Brexit, "whatever you do is OK with me".

Donald Trump has discussed his private conversation with the Queen whom, as well as being "beautiful inside and out", thinks Brexit is "a very complex problem".

The president and queen then broke off to review the troops, walking slowly past a line of Coldstream Guards wearing traditional bearskin hats. "It was really something special", he said of the meeting.

"It's amusing. The Queen seems to be training one of her dogs while Trump is fighting for the right to be called a walking master, "wrote one Twitter user. I think you're doing an wonderful job".

Many also asked whether Trump should have bowed his head when he met the Queen outside the castle. Roger Stone, a longtime Trump adviser, told the Guardian that an American cited in relation to Russian efforts detailed by Mueller was "probably" him.

Johnson "would make a great prime minister", Trump said.

Mr Trump was also asked about running for re-election in 2020, telling Morgan that he "fully intends to" and that he wasn't concerned about any Democratic candidates.

The couple are now spending the weekend at one of Trump's golf courses in Scotland ahead of his meeting with Vladimir Putin on Monday in Finland. "Everyone thought it was going to be 'Oh it's simple, we join or don't join, or let's see what happens'". She's a very special person. "I am sure this was not intentionally done, but it did not look very good".
