PM Theresa May warns party not to put Brexit at risk

The Next Revolution host Steve Hilton on President Trump's comments on British PM Theresa May's handling of Brexit and the protests of Trump in London.

He said "the deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on".

Trump blasted May's actions on Brexit in the interview, and he suggested her approach to negotiating a Brexit deal with the European Union could "kill" a trade deal with the United States. I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister.

He arrived at Windsor after a morning spent visiting Britain's royal military academy at Sandhurst and held talks with Prime Minister Theresa May at her country residence, Chequers.

In another blow to May, Trump said her now ex-foreign secretary "would be a great prime minister".

"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal", the president said.

"And unfortunately there was a story that was done, which was, you know, generally fine", Trump said.

"CNN is fake news", he said. But Trump's schedule had him stay in London only on Thursday night, as close to 90,000 people are expected to descend on the city on Friday to protest against his policies.

During his controversial visit to the UK, Trump met Queen Elizabeth II on Friday at Windsor Castle.

Observers contend that Trump's schedule has seen him deliberately avoid London, an accusation his convoy denies.

Donald Trump finally met Queen Elizabeth II after months of grumbling, and it went just about as well as you'd expect. He paid a brief visit to the USA ambassador's central London residence before taking a helicopter to Blenheim Palace ― the stately home in which Winston Churchill was born ― for a lavish dinner event with British prime minister Theresa May.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who was criticised by Trump in the Sun interview for failing to control crime and prevent militant attacks, gave his blessing for the blimp to be flown. And yes, the balloon was even approved by the City of London.

However, the president made amends, telling May, "I want to apologize for that report".
