President Donald Trump today described the US-UK relationship as "indispensable" and "the highest level of special" as he sought to backtrack on his earlier comments that British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy would "kill" chances of a trade deal between the two countries.

The Guardian reports Mr Trump's press conference in which he disavowed comments he made to The Sun about Theresa May's Brexit plans and the impact on a trade deal.

"So if they go in a slightly different route [on Brexit] - and I know they do want independence. if they are going to go in a certain route I just said that I hope you are going to be able to trade with the United States".

On Friday evening, Trump flew to Scotland where he owns a golf course, ending the formal part of his trip to Britain, but he will not leave Britain for his scheduled meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin until Sunday.

Trump made his first trip to the U.K.as president after a tense summit with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels and only days after fresh ruptures in May's government over Britain's exit from the European Union.

"This incredible woman right here is doing a fantastic job", he said. "I think he is a great representative for your country".

However, he suggested that May might opt to take his suggestion in the future, adding: "Maybe someday she will do that, if they don't make the right deal".

And, what about the so-called special relationship that supposedly links the British and American governments?

Telecom Comm approves net neutrality, new telecom policy

"It would be better if [the London Mayor] stopped engaging in this war against Donald Trump and got on with ... dealing with the crisis in crime", Farage said, pointing to the vicious attack on former British ambassador to the U.S. Sir Christopher Meyer Wednesday, which took place at one of the capital's major railway stations in broad daylight.

Trump followed a similar pattern at this week's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit by slamming US allies at the outset but ultimately claiming North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was stronger than it was before.

"I would have done it much differently", Trump told the paper. According to The Guardian, the white paper says the goal is to minimize "disruption to trade between the United Kingdom and the European Union, protecting jobs and livelihoods", as well as stipulating free trade areas for goods. "She said: "Don't worry, it's only the press".

He also said Boris Johnson would make a "great prime minister". If Trump said it, it's not clear when or where. "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism".

133 killed, 200 injured in twin election-related blasts in Pakistan
The military denied the accusations, and said its assistance had been requested by Pakistan's election commission. This is the second major incident of pre-poll violence in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa this week.

Late a year ago, May herself criticised Trump for retweeting a message by a member of a British far-right group, and the speaker of parliament has said the president would not be welcome to address the chamber.
