"I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the awful things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in".

A small demonstration is expected to take place near Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Thursday, the venue for Trump's black-tie dinner with May on Thursday evening.

Trump's intervention comes at the end of a tumultuous few days for May. Who would think! Who would think. "If they do that, then their trade deal with the US will probably not be made".

Mr Trump said he had told Ms May how to do a Brexit deal, but the Prime Minister did not heed his advice. Both those accords were the result of years of painstaking diplomacy by European leaders, and Trump unilaterally trashed them. "The people voted to break it up so I imagine that is what they would do, but maybe they're taking a different route".

In fact, much of Britain's division over Brexit - which has split the governing Conservative party and the public at large - stems from the June 2016 referendum on withdrawing from the European Union not including language about would come next.

The visit is seen as crucial at setting the course for a closer trading relationship between the two countries.

May insisted earlier Thursday that her plan was exactly what Britons had voted for in the 2016 referendum. "I'm not sure that's what they voted for". "That is exactly what we will do". But one woman said Trump had given a "short speech" which she described as "lovely".

"He is destroying all the norms of what used to be a great democracy in America and so I'm really concerned about my country and I'm here now and so this is where I have the chance to protest him".

Trump angered May and many Britons by tweeting inflammatory and unverified videos made by Britain First, an anti-Muslim group whose leaders have been convicted of hate crimes, and by characterizing parts of London and other cities as no-go areas because of a purported Muslim-related crime wave. "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism", he said.

Top it off with the introduction of trade policies that have targeted some European industries - even though European nations are longtime friends accustomed to easy trade with the USA - and it is not surprising that Trump's itinerary will keep him out of central London on Friday, when large protests are planned. Brexit creates "an opportunity to reach a free-trade agreement that creates jobs and growth here in the U.K. and right across the United States", Ms.

Dick said they will be linked through to units at the same level in sectors such as the intelligence world.

Protesters gathered outside the entrance to Blenheim Palace ahead of the scheduled dinner. It also requires all members to charge the same tariffs on imports from countries outside the bloc. "So I have North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, I have the United Kingdom which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin", he said, per The Guardian. The plan also doesn't deal with trade in services, including financial products, which accounts for 80 per cent of the country's economy.
