U.S. President Donald Trump said he would discuss substantial reductions to nuclear weapons when he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin but cautioned that a "rigged witch hunt" in the United States was hampering efforts to improve relations.

"That's up to the people", Mr. Trump said, who went on to generously praise Mr. Johnson, Mrs.

He told Sky News: "President Trump has done lots of tweets about me and I have done very few in response".

Trump and May were speaking to reporters at a press conference following bilateral talks at Chequers, the prime minister's country residence.

Trump added the nuclear arsenals were "also a very expensive thing but that's the least important". Trump said: "The relationship between our two nations is indispensable to the cause of liberty, justice, and peace".

Trump will later Friday take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, before spending the weekend in Scotland on a private visit that will likely take in 18 holes at one of the property magnate's golf courses, where more protesters await him. She was hoping to win over critics of her Brexit proposal with the release of a 104-page document outlining details of the plan.

He said that the decision to reach two per cent, which had been very hard to achieve in Bulgaria, would be fulfilled in the term of office of the next government, Radev said.

"I think it's a travesty of British values".

After leading allies to believe that the US might abandon its commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, President Trump reversed course at an impromptu press conference. Late a year ago, May criticized him for retweeting a message by a member of a British far-right group, and the speaker of parliament has said Trump would not be welcome to address the chamber.

"I think he's a great representative for your country", he said.

"I can tell you now that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation now is really a fine-tuned machine".

The comments marked Trump's latest attempt to set the stage for his meeting with Putin, with a combination of tough talk and suggestions of future improved ties.

Trump has also frequently angered British politicians and has been involved in social media spats with London's Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan who he said had "done a very bad job on terrorism".

Another Twitter user re-jigged the lyrics to Atomic Kitten's "Whole Again", writing: "Looking back on when we first met, I cannot escape and I cannot forget, Donald, you're the one, You still turn me on, You can hold my hand again".

But that special relationship appeared on the rocks Friday following Trump's stunning interview with The Sun in which the president politically undercut May while she battles to maintain control of her government.

Trump also blasted Londoners in general, for protesting his arrival in England, and said that he "used to love London as a city", but added "when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?"

In the interview, which took place at the U.S. Embassy in Brussels, the president also lashed out at the Muslim mayor of London, saying he had done "a awful job".

"If you think of it, for so many years she's represented her country, she's never really made a mistake", he said.

When asked about Russian Federation illegally occupying Crimea, Trump blamed the Obama administration and said Putin "wouldn't have done that if I was president".
