Donald Trump has said he feels badly for departing prime minister Theresa May, despite having repeatedly criticised her over the way she handled Brexit.
“I feel badly for Theresa — I like her very much. She’s a good woman, she worked very hard. She’s very strong,” he told reporters as he left the White House on his way for a visit to Japan.
“She decided to do something that some people were surprised at, some people weren’t. It’s for the good of her country.”
