United Kingdom should be ready to leave European Union without a deal

Nigel Farage attacks Theresa May's team for 'banning him' from meeting Donald Trump London Mayor Sadiq Khan Says Trump Like A "20th-Century Fascist"

Ahead of his state visit in Britain, Trump has attempted to publicly interfere in United Kingdom politics twice, initially suggesting Boris Johnson should become the next Prime Minister.

"It's absolutely ludicrous", Farage said.

Trump has already denied calling the Duchess of Sussex "nasty", despite audio recordings showing he said "I didn't know she was nasty" when he was told that she said she would leave the U.S. if he won the 2016 election. "The far right is on the rise around the world, threatening our hard-won rights and freedoms and the values that have defined our liberal, democratic societies for more than 70 years", Mr Khan wrote.

The broadcaster, which has been criticised by the president in the past, says Mr Trump "limbered up for his latest overseas trip in typical style, with remarks that risked insulting his royal hosts and by plunging headlong into the country's fraught domestic politics".

Prime Minister Theresa May's government has insisted a decision has not yet been made on Huawei's involvement in building a 5G network in Britain.

After attackers killed eight people near the London Bridge in 2017, Trump criticized Khan's handling of the incident, and Khan's office called Trump "ill-informed."

Asked about potentially meeting Boris Johnson, Trump said: "He's been a friend of mine, he's been very nice".

Mr Khan, the first Muslim to be elected Mayor of London, has previously criticised the USA president for his proposed travel ban on citizens from several Muslim-majority countries.

Mr Khan likened Mr Trump to a number of far-right leaders - such as Marine Le Pen in France.

She has, however, met 12 of the 13 US presidents during her 67-year reign, which is now the longest in British history. "I don't think this should be a state visit", Khan said.

Usually a horse-drawn carriage procession brings the visiting dignitary to the grounds of Buckingham Palace, escorted by mounted soldiers from the Household Cavalry as gun salutes are fired from Green Park and the Tower of London.

They have clashed in the past over his migration policies, while Britain still backs the Iranian nuclear deal and the Paris climate accord, both of which Trump has abandoned.

The president's three-day visit to the United Kingdom this week marks his first official state visit to the country, though he did travel to the country a year ago for a working visit in which he met Queen Elizabeth II. Prince Harry is also set to meet the Trumps, but his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is expected to stay at home with their newborn son Archie.
