Donald Trump's harsh words about Theresa May's negotiation tactics

US President Donald Trump has launched a blistering attack on British Prime Minister Theresa May as her Government appears to be nearing disaster.

Three senior ministers, including Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, resigned over Ms May's plan for Brexit.

The current plan is for a "soft" Brexit, which would allow for trade links with the European Union (EU) to remain, while regaining control of the border.

Her cabinet agreed to the deal on Friday, two years after the public voted in a referendum to leave the EU.

Some UK lawmakers, and Mr Trump, believe the plan is a betrayal to the ideals of the leave movement and instead favour a "hard" Brexit.

"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal," Mr Trump told The Sun.

He also claimed to have told Ms May how to conduct the talks and chastised her for failing to take his advice.

"I would have done it much differently," he told the Sun, which urged its readers to vote leave 2016.

"I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me."

Mr Trump may have further infuriated Ms May with comments on Boris Johnson, who he said would have been a great Prime Minister.
