U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he looked forward to finalizing a post-Brexit trade deal with Britain, marking an abrupt change from a newspaper interview when he said Prime Minister Theresa May's strategy would kill such an agreement.

Mr Trump said: "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". At issue is an interview in the tabloid Sun newspaper in which he was critical of May on Brexit and for not taking his advice (otherwise she'd be better off, he suggested in the interview).

Trump has always been a supporter of Brexit and has expressed enthusiasm for a wide-ranging trade deal with Britain after it leaves the European Union, something heralded by Brexit supporters as being one of the great benefits of exiting the bloc.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday, the second day of his London trip, visits the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, then Chequers - the 16th century manor house of the current prime minister - followed by Windsor Castle.

"It's brought people with different backgrounds, different outlooks here to the United Kingdom and we've seen them contributing to our society and our economy".

As you'd imagine, his appearance has attracted a fair bit of attention, prompting (among many things) a giant 20ft baby blimp to be floated above Parliament Square as part of a huge protest. "She didn't listen to me".

That's what it takes to get an apology from Trump, apparently.

President Trump's complaints about "fake news" are often dishonest.

Trump said it was "up to the people" to decide if Mrs May remained in power at the White House before boarding Air Force One before leaving for Europe.

This is not to say Trump owes May an apology for criticizing her in the British press and praising her rival Boris Johnson.

Trump has insisted the US-UK relationship is "the highest level of special". "I think you're losing your culture".
