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

But Mrs May says she rejected the move because she is determined to negotiate a deal with Brussels.

"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".

"It does appear to me that there has been a year's worth of cloak and dagger to land us into the Chequers position", he told The Sunday Telegraph.

The prime minister has issued a stark warning to MPs that failure to back her plan for Brexit would risk the United Kingdom not leaving the European Union at all.

"I told her how to do it".

"Maybe someday she will do that, if they don't make the right deal, she might very well do what I suggested - that she might want to do, but it is not an easy thing".

The Sun reports that Mr Trump was "forced to climb down" on comments made against Theresa May's Brexit deal.

"It was from right here at Chequers that Prime Minister Churchill phoned President Roosevelt after Pearl Harbor", Trump said, referencing the surprise attack by the Japanese on December 7, 1941, that plunged the USA into World War II. "I am afraid that I think the current trend of policy and tactics is making that look less and less likely".

Trump claimed he did not criticize Prime Minister Theresa May, even though the "Sun" released audio clips showing that he did.

Mr Rees-Mogg said Mrs May had apparently abandoned her "red lines" that had won her the support of the party in March.

"As President Trump has said, I'm a tough negotiator", she wrote.

He continued: 'I think you have to give all the protagonists, whether it's the president or the prime minister, a little bit of leeway here.

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..."

Trump praised May and her qualities, and said that he would be satisfied with whatever Brexit deal Britain struck with the EU.

Asked if now was the moment for Johnson to lead the country, Bannon, who was sacked by the White House in August 2017, said: "I believe moments come".

"We are stuck. In any rational world, and I understand that is a big caveat in today's politics, this would go back to the people for resolution".

A few days before Trump's visit to the UK Johnson quit his role as Foreign Minister in protest at the Brexit White Paper.

Asked whether the run-in was because Mr Khan was Muslim, he said: "That's for President Trump..."
