Laura: 'I'm here to protest because Trump is a misogynistic, racist pig and I don't want him in my country'.

Becky: 'I think Trumpism will get worse while the Tories are in'.

He also refused to take a question from CNN, saying: "CNN is fake news, I don't take questions from fake news".

Yasmine: 'Yes, I think Labour would have stopped him coming if they were in power'.

"And unless you act very quickly it's never going to be what it was, and I don't mean that in a positive way".

"But the relationship that the U.K. has with the United States is about something much bigger than the relationship between the two individuals as president and prime minister - that's important, but actually we have a longstanding special relationship with the United States".

Ahead of his scheduled meeting with the monarch on Friday, he described the Queen as a "tremendous woman", praising her ability to avoid embarrassing mistakes. "He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person. Let's take a question from a real network". You don't see, like, anything embarrassing.

"It will certainly be something that we bring up and talk about", Mr Trump said.

The sting was greater for the fact that May was using the dinner to pitch her case for a separate trade arrangement. She did not accompany the president to his meetings with world leaders in Canada and Singapore last month. My mother loved the Queen.

"She wanted to go a different route". "She probably thought it was too brutal".

New Juventus signing Cancelo welcomes Ronaldo arrival
Portugal made the last 16 of the tournament, in stark contrast to Italy, who failed to qualify for the first time since 1958. Juventus announced on Tuesday that they had agreed an £88m deal with Real Madrid to sign Cristiano Ronaldo .

The president said USA relations with Russian Federation are hurt by "rigged witch-hunts". Look at what is going on in London. "He has done a awful job". "I also represent a lot of people in Europe, because a lot of people from Europe are in the United States".

Trump also said Friday he apologized to May for the interview, though it appears his apology was about the paper's omission of his comments praising her, not his criticism. In the interview with the Sun, Trump - who has been a long-time supporter of Brexit - said May had not listened to his advice on how to do a Brexit deal, saying: "I would have done it much differently". May said the United States was "keen" to do a deal with the United Kingdom, adding: "We will do a trade deal with them and with others around the rest of the world". So we have a double whammy, a double hit.

"We have left North Atlantic Treaty Organisation with more money, more spirit, more unity than even before", Trump said.

'Him being on the world stage gives people confidence to go back to these old principles by which all badness has happened in the world.

As Mr Trump and Ms May spoke, thousands of protesters marched through central London, one of more than 100 demonstrations against the President planned during his stay. "And it's for President Trump to explain why he singled me as the mayor of London out and not the mayors of other cities and leaders of other cities". "I haven't been there in a long time".

Claire: 'I'm here for the same reason as Maxwell, I'm appalled that he's been welcomed into our country where he represents everything that we don't. "I know it is politically not necessarily correct to say that, but I will say it and I will say it loud". Crowds gathered all over England to dump on Trump.

"You don't hear the word "England" as much as you should. I would say the highest level of special".

"I think England is a attractive name". I'm sorry the press didn't choose a better headline and I really did say nice things about you is less direct.

Trump conceded that the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels earlier this week at times got "testy" over his demands that European nations increase their spending on defense, but he said it ended with "more unity" and "more spirit" and that Putin would see those headlines, not ones that talked about the alliance's divisions.
