May says Trump told her to 'sue the EU'

President Donald Trump told British Prime Minister Theresa May that she should sue the European Union for a faster withdrawal from the bloc, May said Sunday.

"I recommended her something, I gave her an option, I'd rather not tell you what that option is, but I think she might", Trump told Morgan.

However, Mrs May continued to insist a deal was possible during a press conference with the President the next day - when he suggested she could take a different approach to negotiations with the EU.

Linking the fate of Brexit to her own survival in such an explicit way indicates just how precarious May's position remains after her government was thrust into crisis and U.S. President Donald Trump publicly criticised her Brexit strategy.

"But it was strong advice".

Trump did say he admires the queen and found her to be "incredible", "sharp" and "beautiful".

Ms Greening, a leading Remainer who was sacked by Theresa May, has wheeled in behind the campaign on the back of the much-criticised Chequers plan for Brexit.

May's comments comes at a politically perilous moment for the prime minister, who is facing calls for a confidence vote over her leadership of the Conservative party, The Guardian commented.

She defended her blueprint for Brexit and urged her critics to back it.

"We'll be dragging Remain voters out of the European Union for a deal that means still complying with many European Union rules, but now with no say on shaping them", Greening wrote in the Times on Monday morning.


Not so she says, it had been "in gestation for some time".

President Trump raved about 92-year-old Queen Elizabeth's beauty in a sprawling new interview from his trip to the UK - but seemed confused about exactly what the United Kingdom is.

"The weather is lovely and this place is incredible".

"I go in with low expectations", Trump said.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. Trump, who has been preparing for the summit by playing golf at his Trump Turnberry course on the western coast of Scotland, told CBS in an interview that "nothing bad" would come out of the summit with Putin. Environmental group Greenpeace have claimed responsibility for the stunt.

"My job as Prime Minister is to deliver for them, but also I've got to be hard-headed and practical about this and do it in a way that ensures we get the best interests for the United Kingdom". Then you're stuck, '"she added".

92-year-old queen, Trump was quoted as saying: "She is an incredible woman, she is so sharp, she is so attractive, when I say handsome - inside and out".

Mrs May will host Mr Trump and his wife Melania at a lavish dinner at Blenheim Palace this evening.

Piers asked: "And has Theresa May looked you in the eye and said we will get there?"

Before the paper was published, Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned, saying it would not deliver the Brexit people voted for in the 2016 referendum.
