Trump says 'up to the people' whether to back Prime Minister May

Trump's remarks, made in a bombshell interview with The Sun published Thursday during his first visit to Britain as United States president, are an explosive intervention into British politics that seem likely to cause political chaos and imperil the prime minister as she attempts to negotiate Britain's exit from the European Union. And that is fine, she should negotiate the best way she knows how.

The Sun said its interview with Trump was conducted in Brussels before he left for the British leg of his trip.

Hague cautioned that Davis and Johnson's resignation will trigger a second referendum or weaken London's position in negotiations with Brussels. They've said it must be one or the other, and that a deep and frictionless free-trade arrangement must be bundled with the single market's free movement of people.

May and her cabinet team spent Friday at Chequers, the prime minister's country house, discussing Brexit policy.

Hammered out at Theresa May's Chequers retreat, the plan has upset Tory Leavers, who fear it doesn't amount to a "hard Brexit", with David Davis and Boris Johnson quitting their ministerial posts in protest.

Without the backing of her own ranks and with a working majority of just 13, the prime minister will need to rely on opposition parties, Politico reported.

The long-awaited white paper does not respect the referendum vote, according to European Research Group chair Rees-Mogg, who in a statement described the plans as "the greatest vassalage since King John paid homage to Phillip II at Le Goulet in 1200". Maybe we'll speak to him when I get over there. "That is exactly what we will do".

Johnson resigned as foreign secretary on Monday, in protest over May's proposal for a "soft" Brexit from the European Union.

"Thank you @BorisJohnson for your great help given to #Kosovo integration in the wider global community and the strengthening of Kosovo-GB relations", he said on Twitter.

"I think he is a great representative for your country", he said.

Khan gave protesters permission to fly the 20-foot-tall balloon depicting Trump as an angry baby in a diaper.

After spending the night at Winfield House Mr Trump will join the PM at a military base on Friday to observe a joint counter-terrorism exercise involving United Kingdom and USA special forces.

More details will be set out on Thursday.

Set to be published in a white paper on Thursday, the plan envisages Britain continuing to trade freely with the remaining European Union in goods under a "common rulebook", while accepting restrictions on trade in services.

Protesters gathered outside the entrance to Blenheim Palace ahead of the scheduled dinner.

There was no immediate statement from Johnson, another loud pro-Brexit voice within May's divided government.

Free trade would not apply to services, which account for 80 per cent of the British economy.

The plan also seeks to keep Britain in major EU agencies, including the European Aviation Safety Agency, the European Medicines Agency and the police agency Europol.

That seems like a little more significant than just catching up with friends.

Catherine McGuinness, head of policy for the City of London Corporation, said the proposals represented a "real blow" to finance firms.
