At a meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May at the G20 summit in Germany, Trump said they would have "tremendous talks" and reach "a very powerful deal" on trade "very very quickly".

The Prime Minister will meet the US President on the sidelines of the Hamburg conference. "There's no country that could possibly be closer than our countries and for a long time", he said, adding that he and May had developed "a very special relationship" and that trade would be big factor between their countries.

The US president said he will be going to London following speculation that a planned state visit may not go ahead this year.

"We'll work that out", the US President stated when asked when he would go to London, as cited by BBC News.

Downing Street said that "no date is being announced today".

The two leaders held a almost half hour meeting before the closing session of the G20 summit, Turkish officials have said without giving more details.

Before her meeting with Trump, May was expected to urge the US President to reconsider his decision to take the US out of the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Trump's state visit to Britain should be cancelled after Trump criticized him following the London Bridge attack.

Earlier this year May told other world leaders that she wanted to be their "bridge" to the new U.S. president.

The U.K. can not establish a separate trade deal with the USA until it has left the European Union in 2019.

On Friday, May met President Xi of China for 30 minutes, in which she raised questions over North Korea and steel dumping, but also talked of a "golden era" of relations between the two countries.

Welcoming the recently signed EU-Japan deal, she said it could "form basis of a bilateral deal" between the United Kingdom and Brussels.

A senior No 10 official said the session began with the president saying that Chinese investment into Britain had increased since the Brexit vote, and that was a sign of confidence in the country.
