London Protester Dresses as Trump in Gorilla Suit Behind Bars

Talking about former UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Trump said he would make a "great prime minister", adding: "I think he's got what it takes".

President Donald Trump said last week that he'd offered "tough" Brexit advice to British Prime Minister Theresa May that she had not heeded.

BBC reporter Frankie McCamley posted footage on Twitter of Mr Trump, dressed in black and wearing a white cap, waving at protesters in the distance as they shouted "No Trump, No KKK, No Racist USA!"

Trump called the Sun story "generally fine" but said that some of his remarks were left out.

Trump, who had accused May of taking too long to quit the European Union in the Sun interview, acknowledged that talks to leave the bloc are "not an easy negotiation to be sure" and said that the deal Britain reached "is OK with me", before adding "just make sure we can trade together".

Asked to rate U.S. -U.K. relations, Mr. Trump gave them the "highest level of special".

"Whatever you do is OK with us, just make sure we can trade together".

On Friday evening, Trump flew to Scotland where he owns a golf course, ending the formal part of his trip to Britain, but he will not leave Britain for his scheduled meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin until Sunday.

During a joint news conference with Ms May, Mr Trump said he had "a lot of respect for the Prime Minister".

A spokeswoman for the Institute of Directors said: "The prospect of a trade deal with the United States is attractive to business, so the President's more optimistic comments are welcome".

"She said it's a very - and she's right - it's a very complex problem, I think nobody had any idea how complex that was going to be", he said according to an interview published by the Mail on Sunday.

"This incredible woman right here is doing a fantastic job", he said.

The streets of London were packed with protesters Friday as up to 100,000 Brits were expected to publicly express their unhappiness with Donald Trump.

The president later travelled to Windsor Castle for tea with Queen Elizabeth.

Trump said that immigration has been "a very negative thing for Europe" while May responded that "the United Kingdom has a proud history of welcoming people fleeing persecution" and "immigration has been good for the U.K".
