The ambassador said that while a meeting was not now on Mr Trump's itinerary "the President makes his own schedule", the day after the American leader said he may make time to meet his "friend" the former foreign secretary.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday acknowledged that his upcoming visit with British Prime Minister Theresa May comes during a time of "turmoil" in her country and said it was up to the British people to decide whether May remains in power.

"I can't read that but if Brexiteers see why Trump has said as validating their own position then the pressure, over the course of this weekend, from constituents onto Conservative members of Parliament will get even greater".

Mr Trump said he had not spoken with Mrs May, adding: "Boris Johnson is a friend of mine".

Mr Trump told reporters: "He's been very nice to me".

"I like Boris Johnson, I've always liked him".

"He's been saying very good things about me as president".

Trump To Impose Additional $200 Billion Tariffs On Chinese Imports
The administration said the new levies are a response to China's decision to retaliate against the first round of U.S. tariffs. The official added that China has warned the USA that future actions would be met with "economic attacks" on American markets.


Asked about the remarks, Mrs May's official spokesman said: "The Prime Minister is looking forward to showing the President the United Kingdom and is confident that he will leave with a very positive impression".

"I think, first of all, to change the rhetoric. So I think that symbolizes how he considers the importance of her leadership in this country right now".

"But personally, I don't think we should have been rolling out the red carpet for Donald Trump".

The Daily Telegraph has said that Mr Johnson is to resume his weekly column for the newspaper, which he gave up when he became foreign secretary in 2016.
