Referencing to the Tweets sent by Mr Trump this week, the host asked Mrs May whether she thought the US president was “child or stable genius, she said: “[He is] taking decisions on what he believes is in the best interest of the United States.”

“Obviously I have worked with President Trump on a number of issues, as we continue to work with the United States on a number of issues,” Mrs May said: “What I make of him is somebody who is taking decisions on what he believes is in the best interests on the US The United Kingdom government and I will take decisions here on what we believe is in the best interests of the UK”

Mrs May said: “When I deal with President Trump, what I see is somebody who is committed to ensuring he is taking decisions in the best interests of the U.S.” when asked about Mr Trump’s mental state.

The PM also confirmed president Trump’s state visit, adding: “He will be coming to this country.”

Previously in 2017, it was rumored that Mr Trump was considering postponing a visit to British over concerns he would be met with protests, his reconsideration reportedly coming following his online spat with London Mayor Sadiq Khan over the London Bridge terror attack, in which Trump suggested Khan was not taking the attack seriously after he reassured Londoners not to be alarmed by additional police on the streets.

Later, president Trump told the Prime Minister to focus on “terrorism” in the UK after she criticised his sharing of videos posted by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain First.

Sadiq Khan, who has previously called for the “ill-judged” trip to be canceled, said: “It beggars belief that the president of our closest ally doesn’t see that his support of this extremist group actively undermines the values of tolerance and diversity that makes Britain so great.”

“After this latest incident, it is increasingly clear that any official visit at all from President Trump to Britain would not be welcomed,” he added.
