In an interview with The Sun, Trump said May's long-awaited blueprint for Brexit, published this week, would "probably kill" any future trade deal between the U.S. and U.K. He also said May's arch-rival Boris Johnson-who resigned as foreign secretary on Monday in protest at the blueprint-would "make a great prime minister".
'I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me. "But maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route, so I don't know if that's what they voted for". He said Boris Johnson, the former foreign minister who resigned this week in a split with Prime Minister Theresa May, "would make a great prime minister".
"I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you'd like. Bring a friend, if you have one", the socialist playwright penned in a note to the conservative prime minister.
"I said Brexit will happen and it did happen", he added. "I'm a very stable genius".
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders later told reporters Trump was "thankful for the wonderful welcome" he received in Britain.
But at the Chequers news conference, Trump said he had been responding to the Sun's question about Johnson as a possible prime minister, adding: "He has been very nice to me". "'Don't worry, it's only the press, '" Trump said she reassured him.
Though Trump has not so far given specific details about what nuclear arms control treaties they would like to talk about, he and Putin are likely to discuss the possibility of extending the "New Start" treaty - a pillar of arms control.
It accused the United States president of "publicly undercutting Prime Minister Theresa May", adding: "Coming after his combative performance in Brussels with leaders of the 28 other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation nations, the day amounted to a global disruption tour unlike anything undertaken by any other recent American president". "She probably thought it was too brutal".

Rosenstein's announcement came just ahead of a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, with whom he has sought warmer relations.
Before his meeting with May, Trump had already dismayed her team by breaching diplomatic protocol and criticizing her handling of Brexit negotiations in his interview with the Sun. He said after their visit he thinks the two countries can reach a free trade agreement. "I hope you have no doubt this is an investment in our security, which can not be said with confidence about Russian & Chinese spending".
"Just make sure we can trade together, that's all that matters", he said.
The President's remarks to The Sun materially damaged her biggest project on the eve of his visit, and he had gone out of his way to praise her political rival who had quit in protest at her Brexit plans earlier in the week.
"We have this stupidity going on, pure stupidity, but it makes it very hard to do something with Russia because, anything you do, it's like: "Russia, oh he loves Russia", Trump said.
"No, if they do that I would say that that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States".
Trump first met May Thursday night and the pair spoke for about 90 minutes and attended a state dinner. That is fake news.
U.S. President Donald Trump closed out his chaotic two-day visit to NATO Thursday by declaring victory, claiming that member nations caved to his demands to significantly increase defence spending and reaffirming his commitment to the alliance.
As Mr Trump and Ms May spoke, thousands of protesters marched through central London, one of more than 100 demonstrations planned against the President during his stay.
"Some are at 2pc, others have agreed definitely to go to 2pc, and some are going back to get the approval, and which they will get, to go to 2pc", he said.
