"I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the awful things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in".

"I would have done it much differently", Trump told The Sun newspaper in an explosive interview just hours before rubbing elbows with the British leader at a lavish black-tie dinner at Blenheim Castle in Oxfordshire.

His remarks on Brexit came the same day May's government published long-awaited proposals for Britain's relations with the European Union after it leaves the bloc next year.

The EU-27 has been clear all along that the four pillars of the single market - the free movement on goods, services, people and capital - are non-derogable.

A trade deal with the United States is one of the main aims of Brexit supporters within Ms May's Conservative Party, who are concerned that she is making too many concessions to the EU.

May's proposal was finalized Friday and quickly sparked a slew of high-profile political resignations from her Cabinet, including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis, over concerns the plans would leave the United Kingdom too closely linked to the EU.

Trump came down firmly on the side of the Brexiteers, saying what May proposed would hurt the chances of a future trade deal between the UK and the United States. "He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K", Sanders said.

"If they do that, then their trade deal with the US will probably not be made", Trump said.

He said "the deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on".

In fact, much of Britain's division over Brexit - which has split the governing Conservative party and the public at large - stems from the June 2016 referendum on withdrawing from the European Union not including language about would come next. It also proposed a close cooperation with the European Maritime Safety Agency and new arrangements for a closer association with the Euratom nuclear regulator than any other non-EU country.

It's something the superstar has been forced to deal with all year long. "This organization has given me everything", he said. A Platinum Glove Award victor and three-time All-Star at third base, Machado moved back to his original position this season.

May insisted earlier Thursday that her plan was exactly what Britons had voted for in the 2016 referendum.

"I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree", he said. I think the immigration, allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame.

Trump also had harsh words for current London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a fervent critic of the president, saying Khan "has done a bad job" running Europe's third-largest city.

Trump planned to meet with May again Friday for lunch and the two were scheduled to hold a joint press conference.

In a podcast for the Brexit Central website, he added that if changes were not made to the plans, Tories would be "screwed" in the next general election.

The government has proposed expanding the EU's existing so-called "equivalence" regime, which now covers access for non-EU partners like Japan and the United States to the region's financial services markets.

Britain and the European Union would maintain a "common rulebook" for goods to ensure smooth trade including in agricultural, food and fisheries products. Such a resolution would avoid disruption to automakers and other manufacturers that source parts from multiple countries.

The British government's new blueprint for Brexit is a "real blow" to London's all-important finance sector as it will damage jobs, tax revenues and growth, a City official said Thursday (Jul 12).

But services including financial services such as accounting and insurance account for three-quarters of the British economy. Banks in particular will lose their current access to the European Union market, as the government gives up on its earlier plan for both sides to recognise each other's regulations.
