President Trump lavished praise on Theresa May yesterday and said that a post-Brexit trade deal was “absolutely” possible as he sought to repair the damage caused by an incendiary interview.

He awarded the “highest level of special” to his relationship with Britain and saluted Mrs May as an “incredible woman” and “very tough negotiator”.

Mr Trump was responding to the fallout from a newspaper interview published yesterday in which he said that Mrs May had ignored his advice on dealing with Brussels.

He met Mrs May at Chequers after savaging her plans for a softer Brexit and warning they would kill a trade deal between Britain and the United States.
