President Donald Trump said on Tuesday at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) in a joint press conference with Theresa May the British prime minister, said he is “committed to a phenomenal trade deal” with the UK.

Once the UK has withdrawn from the EU Trump said he wants to expand on trade agreements with the US and UK as there is “tremendous” potential in such a deal, by “two or three times what we are doing right now.”

The US President said at the press conference that he refused to meet with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, he said he “does not know him” and has “never met him” and described Corbyn as “somewhat negative force.”

He added, “I really don’t like critics.”

A Labour spokesperson said in response to Trump’s comment that Corbyn was “ready to engage with the president on a range of issues, including the climate emergency, threats to peace and the refugee crisis.”

He also said that the London mayor, Sadiq Khan is “not a very good mayor,” and said he causes “a lot of problems” and he also is “a negative force, he’s not a positive force” and added, “he hurts the people of this country.”

Trump said he thanks the Queen for a “lovely dinner last night” and described the monarch as “fantastic person” who is “very, very special.”

He gave his thanks to May for her “warm welcome” and praised May saying it has been a “true honour” to work with the prime minister and added, it has been a “pleasure working with you.”

Describing the US-UK relationship he said it is the “greatest alliance the world has ever known.”
