British Prime Minister Theresa May made a determined pitch to US President Donald Trump for a post-Brexit trade deal with the United States on his first trip to Britain Thursday.
The proposal was made just hours after the American president questioned her plans for leaving the European Union.
As she addressed Mr. Trump and business leaders at British World War Two leader Winston Churchill's birthplace, Mrs May praised the friendship between the two close allies.
Outside Blenheim Palace, near Oxford to the northwest of London, a couple of thousand demonstrators lined the road and booed before Trump's arrival.
This is one of over 100 protests police expect to take place during Mr Trump's four-day trip.
