Trump keeps up war of insults with mayor of London

Wednesday, 05 Jun, 2019

"I don't exactly know what your timing is, but stick around".

Trump told May "Let's do this deal".

The protesters' complaints ranged from Trump's alleged racism and sexism to his climate change denial and immigration policies, his support for Israel and Brexit and the prospect of a UK-US trade deal watering down UK food standards. May had been "a tremendous professional" who didn't get enough credit for trying to reach a Brexit deal with the EU. Yet for some reason, enough people in the remaining 56 percent who don't know Bennet chose to pick him anyway, and that propelled him to a one percent poll showing overall.

With the USA increasingly isolated from its traditional allies, Trump talked up the "special relationship" with Britain during a joint press conference with May.

"I think Donald Trump's balloon is not very well", she said as she walked away from the scene. The President called The Queen "the spirit of dignity, duty, and patriotism that beats proudly in every British heart" while the Queen praised the enduring alliance between the United Kingdom and the U.S. "Sadly, the Labor Party and other [members of Parliament] have stopped us from delivering in that deal", May said.

"We are your largest partner".

On China, she said both sides can not ignore the threat to their interests, but they must also recognise the country's "economic significance" - a clear warning against a lasting U.S. trade war with Beijing. "We want to put a smile on people's faces as well as make a serious point". "We talked about it before".

He said: "I think Boris would do a very good job". "Probably two to three times what we're doing right now".

On NATO, May said countries have pledged $100 billion in additional funding, a key criticism of Trump's on the alliance. "But for those who court attention, it is indeed quite popular to virtue signal against Trump as it indeed is in certain parts of the United States - most notably in Hollywood".

Trump, asked about his threat to levy tariffs on Mexico over immigration, said they will most likely go into effect next week. "I think he would be excellent", Trump told The Sun. "As such, the US Attorney General is most certainly going to shine some light on parts of the UK's so-called "deep state" that will not be flattering". May and her officials at No. 10 Downing Street.

Activists cheerfully inflated an orange blimp of a baby Trump dressed in a diaper outside parliament that brought morning rush hour traffic to a halt. Trump had meetings at Downing Street, and protesters were hoping that they were close enough - and loud enough - to be heard.

There were occasional scuffles as some of the protesters confronted small pockets of Trump supporters.

The state dinner held in the president's honor was boycotted by several lawmakers, including the leader of Britain's Liberal Democrat party as well as Corbyn and other senior Labour figures.

Earlier, Trump locked horns with London Mayor Sadiq Khan who made clear his displeasure at the U.S. president being afforded a state visit.

Late-night hosts Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah took a swipe at Donald Trump once again Monday. Corbyn said he was "proud that our city has a Muslim mayor". "A lot of it is fake news, I hate to say", he continued.
