Donald and Melania Trump land in Brussels ahead of UK visit as PM ‘looks forward’ to meeting

But May insisted she was expecting to talk “positively” with Mr Trump about issues ranging from security to trade.

Mr Trump and First Lady Melania ignored questions from reporters after they landed in Brussels to be greeted by the US ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland.

The president was wearing the same dark suit as earlier, while the first lady had put on a long trenchcoat and black heels.

Speaking as he set off on a European trip taking in a Nato summit and his face-to-face talks with Mr Putin as well as his first visit to the UK as president, Mr Trump suggested that Britain was in “turmoil”.

The US president said he got along with Mrs May “very well”.

But he also said he might make time during his UK visit to speak with his friend Boris Johnson, who has just rocked her Government by resigning as foreign secretary.

He said it was “up to the people” whether or not they want Mrs May to stay as Prime Minister.

Mr Trump said that the UK “certainly has a lot of things going on”.

He said: “So I have Nato, I have the UK – which is in somewhat turmoil. And I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of all.”

When asked about the trip Mrs May said: “I’m looking forward to seeing President Trump not only at the Nato summit coming up in the next couple of days but also obviously when he comes to the United Kingdom at the end of the week.

Trump will touch down in the UK on Thursday for his first visit since becoming US president.

He has insisted: “I don’t care” when asked about critics in Britain and added that he believed “a lot of the people in your country like what I stand for.”
