Newspaper headlines: Trump’s ‘fake schmooze’ over trade deal

Latest news

    Image caption The Sun reports that Donald Trump has had to climb down from an interview with the paper, where he said a US trade deal with the UK would not happen under Theresa May’s Brexit plan. The paper said although he praised the prime minister it was a “fake schmooze” as he did not backtrack on his position over Brexit.
    Image caption The Times also reports that a post-Brexit trade deal with the US was “absolutely” possible, after Trump lavished praise on the prime minister. The front page also features a picture of the US president with the Queen at Windsor Castle.
    Image caption The Guardian says Mr Trump “abruptly disavowed his criticism of Theresa May” and dubbed the interview published in the Sun as “fake news”. The paper says he believes the government’s white paper, which includes some alignment with EU regulation, did not preclude a US trade deal.
    Image caption The Daily Express has a picture of Donald Trump and Theresa May holding hands at Chequers, referencing his so-called u-turn on the prime minister’s Brexit negotiations with the headline, “Hold on! I’ll give you a deal”.

    Image caption The Daily Mirror strikes an angry tone as Mr Trump is pictured sitting in an armchair used by Sir Winston Churchill. The paper says during his visit the US president attacked the NHS, embarrassed the Queen and undermined America’s “special relationship” with the UK.
    Image caption The FT Weekend also leads with news that Donald Trump attempted to “repair diplomatic wounds” after his interview with the Sun, saying Britain’s future ties with the EU “is OK with me”.
    Image caption Theresa May “ignored” advice from Donald Trump to be “brutal” and “tough” in Brexit negotiations, the Daily Telegraph reports. According to the paper, the creator of The Art Of The Deal told Mrs May to “overshoot” the targets she expected from the EU in Brexit negotiations. The paper also reports that former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has returned to the paper as a columnist, something he was prohibited from doing as a secretary of state.
