Trump, In Britain, Tells May Ties Are At ���Highest Level Of Special���

• Brexit: The president seemed to backpedal on the criticism of the prime minister’s policy, saying, “Whatever you do is O.K. with me, that’s their decision.” But he repeated that Mrs. May had not followed the advice he gave on Brexit, adding, “I think she found it maybe too brutal.”

• Immigration: Mr. Trump said “I think it’s been very bad for Europe” and “it’s changing the culture” of the Continent, adding, “You see the same terror attacks that I do.” But Mrs. May said Britain had “a proud history” of welcoming immigrants, and that “over all, immigration has been good for our country.”

• Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election: Mr. Trump has at times dismissed it as unproven, but he said he would again raise it with President Vladimir V. Putin, who has denied any interference. “I don’t think you’ll have any ‘Gee I did it, I did it, you got me,’” he said, “but I absolutely will ask the question.”

• U.S.-Russia relations: Mr. Trump said a major obstacle to improving ties was the investigation into possible collusion between Russia and his 2016 campaign. He blamed his predecessor, Barack Obama, for Mr. Putin’s annexation of Crimea in 2014, and said it would not have happened if he had been in office.

• The May-Trump relationship: They both brushed off suggestions that his remarks to The Sun had undercut her or damaged their relationship. Mr. Trump said that when he started to apologize Friday morning, the prime minister said, “Don’t worry, it’s only the press.”
