Trump made the remark as he set off on a trip to Europe which includes a visit to Britain where he will hold talks with May who is now wrestling with a political crisis after two top ministers quit over her plans for Brexit.

Donald Trump has said that the United Kingdom is in "turmoil" and it is "up to the people" whether or not Theresa May remains Prime Minister.

But Trump also said that Johnson "obviously likes" him and that he has "a lot of respect" for the former London mayor, who resigned as foreign secretary this week amid deep-seated differences with May over her strategy for the U.K.'s exit from the European Union.

"I can't read that but if Brexiteers see why Trump has said as validating their own position then the pressure, over the course of this weekend, from constituents onto Conservative members of Parliament will get even greater".

Here comes the Brexit deal maker and the PM assassin take a bow President Donald Trump...

Ahead of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, the president told reporters: "He has been very, very nice to me, very supportive".

"We'll make everything possible". Anti-Trump protesters are expected to take to the streets of London during his visit to Britain.

"She was the first foreign dignitary to visit the USA when he became president".

A high metal fence has been erected around the USA ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night and the embassy sent out an alert warning Americans in London to keep a low profile in case protests turned violent.

"Are they going to look at what Trump has said and say "yeah absolutely that is how I feel" or do they say "well it is not really the job of an American President to tell us what to think".

While the protests are taking place in the British capital, Trump will meet the queen at Windsor Castle where he will be welcomed with a guard of honor before having tea with the 92-year-old monarch.
