A day of stately ceremony and ungenerous feuding behind him, President Donald Trump gets to the business of transatlantic diplomacy on Tuesday with meetings focused on trade, security and Britain's pained exit from the European Union. Thousands of protesters gathered in the square Tuesday to express disapproval at the lavish state visit being held for Trump. Its position is in flux because May is stepping down as party leader Friday, setting in motion a race to succeed her as prime minister.
"I have greatly enjoyed working with you".
'He has done a poor job, crime is up, a lot of problems, and I don't think he should be criticising a representative of the United States that can do so much good for the UK'. "A lot of it is fake news, I have to say".
On Brexit, he was more supportive of Mrs May than in his weekend newspaper interviews, saying the prime minister "has brought it to a very good point" and "she has done a very good job". Large protests are expected during the U.S. president's visit, as was the case during his trip previous year. I think Donald Trump's balloon is not very well.
After a day of pomp and pageantry involving the British royals, today was a day for politics and protests.
But it comes at an especially chaotic time for Britain.

He also suggested that Brexit-backing former foreign minister Boris Johnson would be an "excellent" leader to get it done.
Trump said he was certain the sides could reach an understanding on Chinese telecoms giant Huawei that could avoid disruption in intelligence-sharing between London and Washington.
Leaning toward May, Trump said, "I don't exactly know what your timing is but stick around, let's do this deal".
Trump was asked a question about the opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who was addressing protesters outside.
Corbyn tweeted that the protest was "an opportunity to stand in solidarity with those [Trump has] attacked in America, around the world and in our own country" including Sadiq Khan. First Lady Melania Trump's tea set is at least bespoke and made by designer Emma Bridgewater.
The meetings follow the Trump family's day with the royal family, capped by a white tie dinner during which Trump hailed the historic ties between Britain and the US, and in particular the countries' alliance during World War Two.
