In the press conference with Mrs May after their meeting today, he seemed to backtrack on a number of the claims made to the Sun, going so far as to brand the whole interview "fake news".

The long-awaited document proposes keeping Britain and the European Union in a free market for goods, with a more distant relationship for services.

The giant balloon named "Trump Baby" was released near the U.K.'s Houses of Parliament, where "Stop Trump" protesters are marching in central London.

"When the president speaks about immigration, you will repeatedly hear him put it in the sense of a threat, a security threat specifically, and that's also how he framed it when he was talking about it in Europe". I haven't been there in a long time. "I think you're losing your culture".
