Trump, who had accused May of taking too long to quit the European Union in the Sun interview, acknowledged that talks to leave the bloc are "not an easy negotiation to be sure" and said that the deal Britain reached "is OK with me", before adding "just make sure we can trade together". As he said in his interview with The Sun she "is a very good person" and he 'never said anything bad about her.'.
Thousands of people waving banners and banging pots and pans took to the streets of London on Friday to protest against U.S. President Donald Trump on his first official visit to Britain as president.
Trump also reignited his feud with London mayor Sadiq Khan, who has repeatedly blamed for terrorism and personally blamed for immigration into the capital, despite the mayor having no control over immigration policy. He's saying he wanted to apologize to her because he actually said such nice things about her.
May said the United States was "keen" to do a deal with the United Kingdom, adding: "We will do a trade deal with them and with others around the rest of the world".
He confirmed that he had threatened to pull United States troops out of Europe at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels during the week, but said the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries had come together and agreed to increase military spending which would make them stronger and more unified.
Trump said he would be spending little time in London because of protests against him planned there, which an include a blimp made to look like an infant version of the president.
He said the paper's story was "generally fine", but "it didn't put in what I said about the prime minister, and I said tremendous things". Trump said Khan has done a "very bad job on crime" and a "very bad job on terrorism".
Trump accused the prime minister of ignoring his advice on Brexit negotiations, in remarks that echoed Johnson's private barbs that the U.S. president would do a better job than May in negotiations.
May's office said it would not comment on The Sun article during a greeting when Trump met May at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst to review a military exercise.

"The people voted to break it up (Britain's ties with the EU)", Trump told a press conference.
Earlier, activists floated a six-meter-high blimp outside parliament depicting the US president as an orange, snarling nappy-wearing baby.
Trump then heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with Queen Elizabeth II.
"I used to love London as a city", Trump said.
Of Johnson, he said: "I have a lot of respect for Boris".
Trump said that the "special relationship" - "the highest level of special" - between the two countries is "a bond that is like no other".
It comes after London Mayor Sadiq Khan repeatedly called for the president's visit to the country to be canceled.
Prime Minister May said they had discussed plans for an "ambitious" trade agreement.
A number of protests against his visit are taking place.
