The Sun reports that Donald Trump has had to climb down from an interview with the paper, where he said a US trade deal with the UK would not happen under Theresa May’s Brexit plan. The paper said although he praised the prime minister it was a “fake schmooze” as he did not backtrack on his position over Brexit.

The Times also reports that a post-Brexit trade deal with the US was “absolutely” possible, after Trump lavished praise on the prime minister. The front page also features a picture of the US president with the Queen at Windsor Castle.

The Guardian says Mr Trump “abruptly disavowed his criticism of Theresa May” and dubbed the interview published in the Sun as “fake news”. The paper says he believes the government’s white paper, which includes some alignment with EU regulation, did not preclude a US trade deal.

According to the paper, the creator of The Art Of The Deal told Mrs May to “overshoot” the targets she expected from the EU in Brexit negotiations. The paper also reports that former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has returned to the paper as a columnist, something he was prohibited from doing as a secretary of state.
