US ambassador Woody not sure about Trump and Boris meet

US ambassador Woody not sure about Trump and Boris meet

In a scathing resignation letter to the Prime Minister, Mr Johnson said that, under her leadership, the United Kingdom was "heading for a semi-Brexit", with the dream of an outward-looking global Britain "dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

In between, he will be in Britain, with a black tie dinner hosted by May on Thursday and a working visit with the prime minister on Friday. "I'm not sure. That's not on the schedule, but the president makes his own schedule".

Trump is expected to face major protests during his trip to Britain, including a giant inflatable image of him as a crying baby to be flown near parliament on Friday.

Earlier tens of thousands of protesters gathered in central London to denounce the visit for stoking "division along fault lines of fear and hatred".

Before he arrived in the UK, Mr Trump had suggested he could meet Mr Johnson, which would have embarrassed Mrs May.

"I think, first of all, to change the rhetoric".

Mr Trump told reporters: "He's been very nice to me".

Britain on Wednesday geared up for the arrival of Donald Trump just hours after the US president waded into the Brexit crisis gripping Prime Minister Theresa May's government and portrayed the closest USA ally in Europe as a country in turmoil.

Houston's Capela reportedly seeking $100M contract
In an offseason that was expected to be very quiet for the Heat, signing Anthony would be a fairly welcome surprise. Then ESPN reported the deal was valued closer to $15 million, as Houston offered a four-year, $60 million contract.

In an interview with the Sun, Mr Trump said he would have carried out the Brexit negotiations "much differently" and claimed the Prime Minister did not listen to his advice. In mid-afternoon trade, the pound recovered some of those losses, last at $1.326, following the news that UK Conservative Party Chairman Brandon Lewis said he did not expect a vote of confidence against the prime minister.

"If they do that, then their trade deal with the USA will probably not be made".

The Daily Telegraph has said that Mr Johnson is to resume his weekly column for the newspaper, which he gave up when he became foreign secretary in 2016.

Mr Trump said he apologised to Mrs May over the Sun front page story, and she replied: "Don't worry it's only the press".

"I didn't criticize the prime minister", Trump falsely claimed, adding: "Fortunately we tend to record stories now, so we have it for your's called fake news".

Mrs May said it was "all of our responsibility to ensure that transatlantic unity endures".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he did not feel Britain should be "rolling out the red carpet" to Mr Trump.
