  • Donald Trump brings Brexit advice on state visit to troubled UK

When Trump arrives, customs dictate that he will be greeted at Buckingham Palace by Queen Elizabeth and her son and heir to the throne Prince Charles.

Beyond the pomp, though, the proudly unpredictable 45th USA president also brings demands: He has praised a more radical Brexit-supporting potential successor to May and his envoys have urged a tougher British stance towards telecoms giant Huawei.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will step down days after Trump visits and French President Emmanuel Macron is expected to use the 75th anniversary of the World War II battle that turned the tide in Europe to call for strengthening the multinational ties the USA president has frayed.

In the interview, President Trump also said that he would need "to know" Jeremy Corbyn before he authorised USA intelligence to share its most sensitive secrets with a Labour government.

The president also says Brexit party leader Nigel Farage, an outspoken advocate of leaving the European Union without a deal, should be given a role in the negotiations.

He also urged the Labour leader to "get along with the United States" if he wants Britain to continue to benefit from U.S. military and intelligence support, the paper reported.

"If the president meets with one or two candidates and not others it is interference of a sort in British politics, and normally a president would avoid that, or make sure to meet them all", Prof Kupchan said.

It heard from more than 2,000 witnesses over the last two and a half years - including survivors of violence and family members of missing women.

They have clashed in the past over his migration policies, while Britain still backs the Iranian nuclear deal and the Paris climate accord, both of which Trump has abandoned.

He also advised Mr Corbyn to "get along with the United States" if he wants the UK to continue to benefit from USA intelligence and military support.

In a move that will unnerve even those Conservative contenders who want a hard Brexit, Trump said it was "a mistake" for the Tories not to involve Farage, the Brexit Party leader, in the negotiations and that his success in the recent European elections meant he had earned his place. "He has a lot to offer".

As he departed on Sunday, he also mocked London Mayor Sadiq Khan, ruling out a meeting because "I don't think much of him". "They just haven't figured that out yet". "That is me. I would not pay, that is a tremendous number". "The small-minded pettiness." Mr Farage, who has met the United States president and shared pro-Brexit views on several occasions, added: "I supported him publicly, I speak to him occasionally on the phone, but I was told it was not to happen". Her meeting with Trump on Tuesday will be one of the last acts of her star-crossed residency at 10 Downing Street.

Trump embarrassed May with outspoken remarks on Brexit during his visit to Britain previous year.

Bolton dismissed concerns about Brexit: "You know, America declared its independence once - we made out okay", he quipped.

Protesters are planning another big turnout this week and are hoping to once again fly their inflatable balloon showing Trump as a baby over the streets of London.
