At a press conference later in the grounds of the PM's country residence, Mr Trump insisted he "didn't criticise" the Prime Minister and hit out at "fake news". "I get along with her very well, I have a very good relationship".

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.

The U.S. Ambassador to London on Wednesday said he was unsure whether President Donald Trump would meet Boris Johnson, who resigned from Prime Minister Theresa May's government, during his upcoming trip Britain.

Trump's week-long trip to Europe includes a meeting in Brussels with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners, who he has accused of not paying their way, and a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Finnish capital Helsinki. He replied: "Yes. We will make everything possible - if the President wants to do something we will make it possible". "Very supportive. I maybe will speak to him when I get over there".

He said: "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal. So I think that symbolizes how he considers the importance of her leadership in this country right now".

Trump is expected to face major protests during his trip to Britain, including a giant inflatable image of him as a crying baby to be flown near parliament on Friday.

A high metal fence has been erected around the USA ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night and the embassy sent out an alert warning Americans in London to keep a low profile in case protests turned violent.

"It's really kind of irrelevant to what we're trying to do, and it certainly doesn't express the opinion of the British people that I've met", Ambassador Johnson said of the balloon.

Following their talks, Mr Trump and his wife Melania flew by helicopter for tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle where they were greeted with a guard of honour from 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards.
