And in case people missed that plug, Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to promote his golf course again: "I have arrived in Scotland and will be at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf". "They were doing whatever it was during the Obama administration", he said.
He has since downplayed his Brexit comments - but speaking to the BBC on Sunday Mrs May said Mr Trump had advised her to "sue the EU".
"Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out".
"It's pretty silly for the president to demand something that he can't get legally", Bolton said on ABC News' This Week. "The Russians take the position - you can like it or not like it - that their constitution forbids them to extradite Russian citizens".
From aboard Air Force One, Trump complained in tweets that he wasn't getting enough credit for his meeting with Kim and railed that "Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people" as he headed to sit down with Putin.

The crowd repeated a refrain heard at many anti-Trump protests including one that drew tens of thousands to London as the president visited Britain last week: "No Trump, no KKK, no fascist United States of America!"

Mr Trump has also been urged to raise the poisoning of two people in the United Kingdom who came into contact with the nerve agent Novichok.
In reality, the president is completely at odds with his own administration on Russian Federation; while Trump continues to cozy up to Putin, the federal agencies under him have adopted a traditionally hawkish Republican attitude.
In a letter from eight top Democrats sent to Trump yesterday, the lawmakers also urged Trump to cancel the meeting, but said if it goes forward he should come with backup.
"So amusing! I just checked out Fake News CNN, for the first time in a long time (they are dying in the ratings), to see if they covered my takedown yesterday of Jim Acosta (actually a nice guy)".
