Trump speculates about May’s successor while appearing beside her

Political Editor

Donald Trump has been deploying his now well-known brand of diplomacy in London, heaping praise on his friends and attacking his detractors.

He took time today to see Nigel Farage and speak to Boris Johnson, and branded Jeremy Corbyn a “negative force” whose invitation to meet he had turned down.

He lavished praise on the UK and Theresa May, but the outgoing Prime Minister had to endure embarrassing questions and answers at their press conference.

And as thousands of anti-Trump protesters were mostly kept away from the President, he said it was all “fake news”. He had seen flag-waving supporters.
