British Prime Minister Theresa May has a good relationship with Donald Trump and is confident that a trade deal can be agreed with the United States after the president criticised her Brexit plans in an interview, her spokeswoman said.

Trump told The Sun newspaper that May's plan for Brexit had probably killed off the chance of a U.S.-British trade deal and said he thought May's rival, Boris Johnson, would make "a great prime minister".

"Trade is one of the top items for discussions between the president and the PM today and ... we are confident that we can do a good trade deal with the U.S.," the spokeswoman told reporters.

"The prime minister has a good relationship with the president."
