Donald Trump told Theresa May to sue the European Union over Brexit

President Donald Trump said last week that he'd offered "tough" Brexit advice to British Prime Minister Theresa May that she had not heeded.

Britain's Prime Minister, Theresa May, appears on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show in London, Britain July 15, 2018.

Today Mrs May revealed his advice was in fact to "sue the EU".

Trump told reporters Friday at a joint press conference with May that he had given the British leader a suggestion that she found too "brutal". "Actually, no, we're going into negotiations with them", May told the BBC in an interview that published Sunday. UK PM Theresa May, however, did not conform to the demand for she thought it would be against the US's national interest.

That illusion, and the calm of a lovely summer evening at Blenheim Palace, was shattered by the appearance on dinner guests' smartphones of the first extracts of the President's explosive interview in the next day's Sun newspaper. She wanted to go a different route'.

"Don't walk away from negotiations, because then you'll be stuck".

"I would say I would give our relationship in terms of grade the highest level of special", Mr Trump said.

He added: "92% of our economy is the services sector, we need to make sure not simply is there a deal in relation to goods during post transition, we need a back stop in relation to services..."

Farage, a member of European Parliament and former leader of the U.K. Independence Party, said Trump made a decision to "intervene" for two reasons: he believes in Brexit and he feels the US has been let down.

During a press conference Friday afternoon, he denied criticizing May and suggested that the newspaper had left out his praise of the British prime minister.

"Be in no doubt: under the government's proposal our fingers would still be caught in this mangle and the European Union would use it ruthlessly to punish us for leaving and handicap our future competitiveness", Davis said.

"On the other hand what they call EEA (European Economic Area) plus, which would have meant accepting free movement and accepting being in the customs union. We have been discussing this option". "Discussions have been taking place for some considerable time", she said.

"I am yet to see a workable alternative future trading arrangement that would deliver on our commitments to Northern Ireland, preserve the constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom and deliver on the result of the referendum", she wrote.
