Donald Trump's Brexit advice to Theresa May

British Prime Minister Theresa May and U.S President Donald Trump hold a joint press conference at Chequers in Buckinghamshire England Friday

Back my plan or face no Brexit at all, Theresa May warns Tory rebels

"I want us to be able to sit down to negotiate the best deal for Britain", May said.

He added: "What I would like to see is our government do a good deal with the European Union".

After hours of talks at her Chequers country residence she appeared to have won over her cabinet, but just two days later David Davis resigned as Brexit secretary, followed by her foreign minister, Boris Johnson, the next day.

He said: "Well it wasn't my blimp or my balloon, but we have in our city and our country, as indeed does the U.S., a rich history of the right to protest, the right of free speech and the right to express our views and the idea that we would curtail these rights because it may cause offence... actually what you saw on Friday was peaceful protest and done in a safe way".

In an attempt to forge a balance between those seeking a smooth Brexit and those who fear staying too close to the EU's orbit would undermine the very nature of Brexit, May sought the approval of senior ministers for her plans on July 6.

Mr. Trump's first official visit to Britain this week came ahead of a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday. Our companies will abide by these rules anyway, Giving them frictionless border means that the jobs that depend on that frictionless trade will be protected.

"But the legacy of Brexit can not be a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland that unpicks the historic Belfast Agreement".

Trump later backtracked on his comments and later promised a "great" USA trade deal.

"Theresa May has got a lot of great qualities - I am not sure if it is the right leader at the right time", Bannon, Trump's former strategist and a key player in his 2016 election campaign, was quoted by the Daily Telegraph as saying.

Asked if now was the moment for Johnson to lead the country, Bannon, who was sacked by the White House in August 2017, said: "I believe moments come". Michel Barnier had made clear to him the unnegotiability of the position that we had, so we had a choice.

"That is wrong. It does allow us to do new trade deals", she said.

Speaking about the capital's violent crime and stabbings he said chief constables all accepted there was a link between a cut in police resources and an increase in crime, adding: "I'm not excusing criminality, but we need the Government to step up and help us".

"We could have said "Let's stay where we are and see what happens" and risk actually ending up with a chaotic leaving which I don't think is in people's interests".

Mrs May denied that the plan would prevent Britain striking free trade deals around the world. "The prize is delivering the European Union in a way that is in our national interest", she said.
