"She should negotiate the best way she knows how".

Davis said Monday that he believed Britain was "giving too much away, too easily" in the exit talks, saying that May's plan "would be a risk at least of delivering a poor outcome". But Trump's interview with The Sun now leaves that prospect in doubt - and puts May in a vulnerable position.

Davis' resignation was followed by that of Exiting the EU Minister Steve Baker.

"If they do that, I would say that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States", Mr. Trump added. I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister.

US President Donald Trump hailed Britain's Boris Johnson as a friend of his today after he quit Theresa May's government and said he may speak to the former foreign secretary in the coming days.

Donald Trump has warned Theresa May her Brexit blueprint will "kill" hopes of any future trade deal with the US.

Andrew Bridgen became the first Conservative MP to publicly confirm he had sent a letter calling for a vote of confidence in the prime minister, it was reported. Gauke asked. "The challenge is (that it is) all very well for people to say "I wouldn't do this".

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

A 98-page report setting out the Government's demands to Brussels would mean European Union workers will still be allowed rights to travel to Britain temporarily.

He said: "I hope that people in parliament will support it, once we have agreement from the EU". "That is exactly what we will do".

"I like Boris Johnson. So I think she ll stay".

Trump also said he doesn't feel welcome in London - and he blames that in part on the city's mayor, Sadiq Khan.

"Our priority around Brexit is to ensure that Australia secures a free trade agreement with the United Kingdom that's as beneficial to both countries as possible, as soon as possible", Mr Pyne said on Tuesday.

Trump did not exactly give May's plans a ringing endorsement. The only state never to vote for Reagan is Minnesota, thanks to native son Walter Mondale being on both tickets, and Trump didn't win Minnesota either.

More details will be set out on Thursday. Together with a customs partnership (which would require the collect tariffs on the EU's behalf), this could remove the need for a physical border between Ireland and Northern Ireland - avoiding one of the greatest dangers aroused by this ill-conceived project - and allow close-to-frictionless trade in goods between Britain and Europe.

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

"Of course the EU-27 is open to compromise but not one that can undermine the main pillars of the single market", an European Union official said on condition of anonymity.

Hunt said it was a moment to show that Britain remained a "strong, confident voice in the world".

"We are coming out of the European Union and we are going to continue to grow our economy, do deals around the world and importantly for a constituency like mine end free movement".

"The President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much".

And he said it was "impossible" to say whether Brussels was likely to accept the proposals.

The Guardian newspaper reported on Tuesday that hard Brexiteers in the Conservative party had threatened May with a "drip, drip" of resignations that would undermine her premiership.
