The outspoken US president, on an official visit to the UK, warned Theresa May that her Brexit plan could "kill" any UK-US trade deal because Britain would remain so closely aligned to the European Union.

When asked about the interview, Trump said, "I didn't criticize the prime minister".

According to The Sun, Trump said May not only ignored the advice he gave her on Brexit, but has gone "the opposite way", leading to "very unfortunate results".

"I said, 'I want to apologise because I said such good things about you, ' And she said, 'Don't worry, it's only the press, '" Trump said of their purported conversation.

But Mr Trump appeared to link Brexit to the current trade dispute between the U.S. and European Union over steel and aluminium.

Trump also reignited his feud with London mayor Sadiq Khan, who has repeatedly blamed for terrorism and personally blamed for immigration into the capital, despite the mayor having no control over immigration policy.

As protests swarm across the country and a giant balloon depicting Mr Trump as a baby flies over London, this highly contentious visit is likely to determine US-UK relations going forward. He also said she "wrecked" Brexit, which he supports.

On Brexit, he said: 'I would have done it much differently.

He added: "I didn't think they put it in, but that's all right".
