"I would have done it much differently". By contrast, 67 percent said they believed he was a "poor" or "terrible president". "I think he's got what it takes", he added.

In a series of extraordinary broadsides, Trump told Friday's edition of The Sun that May's plan for post-Brexit ties with the European Union would "probably kill" the prospects for a trade deal with the US.

Asked about his trip to the UK, Trump said he was not concerned about protests because "they like me a lot there", suggesting the Brexit vote had come about because "they agree with me on immigration".

"Trump baby", as the balloon is known, will be flown high over Parliament Square in London, but Mr. Trump is spending the day miles away from the center of the British capital - and the protesters - in meetings with Prime Minster Theresa May and then later with Queen Elizabeth II.

I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism.

"I also represent a lot of people in Europe because a lot of people from Europe are in the United States".

As for Johnson, Trump said: "I think he would be a great prime minister".

In another setback, however, Trump also praised the plan's chief critic, Brexiteer Boris Johnson, saying he was "a very talented guy".

US President Donald Trump told the Sun newspaper that UK Prime Minister Theresa May has ignored his advice by opting for a soft Brexit strategy.

The controversy will shadow the president across Britain on Friday much like the 20-foot (6-meter) tall balloon depicting Trump as an angry baby that was inflated in London early Friday and will be airborne for his visit. Although Trump has said this practice will be stopped, thousands of children remain separated from their parents and face great difficulty locating their relatives. "Yet again he diminishes the standing of the great country he is meant to lead". I think she is a nice person.

He landed at Stansted Airport Thursday afternoon and was whisked by helicopter to Winfield House, the American diplomatic residence in London.

After the dinner, the Trumps will travel to the US ambassador's official residence, Winfield House in London's Regent's Park, where they will spend the night.

Mr Trump is due to leave Scotland on Sunday, when he will travel to Finland for talks with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

His visit comes as the government publishes its plans for the UK's relations with the European Union after Brexit.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London".

The president also took the opportunity to express his "great love for countries in Europe", but claimed that allowing in refugees fleeing conflict and starvation was causing the continent to lose its culture.

The "millions and millions of people" who are immigrating to Europe is "very, very sad", Trump said, telling The Sun that "allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame".

"You know I've been reading a lot on Brexit over the last couple of days and its seems to be turning a little bit differently where they're getting at least partially involved back with the European Union", he said.
