"Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister of Canada gave a little bob of head as the Queen is the Head of State of Canada".

"CNN is fake news", he said. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me".

May later had to endure an uncomfortable, open-air press conference with Trump following a three-hour meeting with him at Chequers, during which the President cast doubt on Brexit by saying Britain would "perhaps" leave the EU.
