At a red-carpet reception at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, the 18th century ancestral home of Britain's war-time Prime Minister Winston Churchill, last evening Prime Minister May made a call to strike an "unprecedented" post-Brexit trade deal between the USA and UK.

Venting to The Sun, a conservative newspaper owned by Rupert Murdoch (who also owns 21st Century Fox, the parent company of FOX Business), Trump said Prime Minister Theresa May had "wrecked it" and if her plan to exit the European Union maintained their trade partnership, that would be a problem and "probably kill" a bilateral trade deal with the U.S.

The Financial Times also runs with Mr Trump "switching tack" as he aims to "mend bridges".

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".

The Daily Mail writes that a "rent-a-Lefties" protested in London, and that Mr Trump saw the "best and worst of Britain".

Donald Trump claimed he was misquoted by the Sun in his biting criticism of Theresa May - a bombshell for a foreign leader to level while a guest in another country - and said he had the tape to prove it.

And the Daily Star reports on TV and radio host Richard Bacon, who is ill in hospital.

He also said Boris Johnson would make a "great prime minister".

Revealing he had apologized to the prime minister earlier in the day for the interview published in The Sun, Trump said he had confidence in the job May was doing. "I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the disgusting things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in", he said.

"I think she's doing a terrific job, by the way", Trump said of May's handling of Brexit after having said in the interview that she had ignored his advice on how to negotiate.

In the interview, Trump described Johnson as "a very talented guy", adding: "I like him a lot. I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me".

Towering over the queen, Mr Trump and the monarch shared a few interactions as they reviewed troops at the royal castle in Windsor.

Asked about the status of the "special relationship", Trump said he would give it "the highest grade of special".

As Trump and May spoke, thousands of protesters marched against the president through central London, one of more than 100 demonstrations planned against the president during his stay.

Arriving straight from a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit that was predictably contentious, the U.S. president has been greeted with massive protests on his first trip to London since taking office.
