During Friday's joint press conference with Prime Minister May, Trump announced that he provided May with a suggestion concerning Brexit that she apparently found "too brutal".

Revealing the surprising suggestion on the BBC's Andrew Marr program on Sunday, May appeared to stifle what appeared to be a chuckle of disbelief at Trump's outlandish idea. "Not go into negotiations, sue them."The comments were made during the US president's visit to the U.K., Friday".

Asked to rate USA -U.K. relations, Mr. Trump gave them the "highest level of special". He said he had told May how to conduct Brexit negotiations, "but she didn't listen to me".

She added: "Interestingly, what the president also said at that press conference was 'Don't walk away".

"I know there are some who have concerns about the "common rule book" for goods and the customs arrangements which we have proposed will underpin the new UK-EU free trade area".

"If they don't make the right deal, she might very well do what I suggested that she might want to do", Trump told reporters.

Mrs May finally revealed what Mr Trump had told her. In 2017 the United States ran a modest trade surplus with the country, Census Data figures show, a stark contrast to the massive trade deficit the world's largest economy runs with the European Union, which has drawn Trump's ire as his administration pursues tariffs on major USA trading partners. Previous year the EU ran a trade surplus with the United States of almost $140 billion, according to European Commission data.

There was also a rally on Saturday in London by Trump supporters and right-wing activists who wanted to show their support of Trump.

The British government has recently published much-anticipated Brexit plans, which proposes that Britain continues its free-market relationship with the European Union when it comes to goods, but distancing from each other when it comes to services.

Mr Bannon added: "If you look at Boris' resignation letter and if you look at him and his writing, if you look at his book on Churchill. If we don't, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all", she wrote in an article in the Mail on Sunday newspaper. Along with Mr Johnson, the man who had been leading the Brexit negotiations, David Davis, also quit in protest.

Mrs May urged Brexiteers in her own party to "keep their eye on the prize" of Brexit - and said her plan was the only workable way to deliver it.

Her appeal didn't convince prominent Conservative lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg, who accused May of only half-heartedly supporting Brexit.

"Perhaps we ought to have realised earlier on that a Remainer would stick with Remain".
