Whiskey and motorbikes are in the firing line. The EU has threatened tariffs on US products in response to President Donald Trump's proposed import taxes.
The US president had said earlier this week that May did not pay heed to his "brutal" advice on Brexit negotiations. May's revelations follow a damning critique of her exit plans by Trump.
The US president listed the EU, China and Russia as economic "foes" in an interview. He also said he has a "big problem" with Germany over its contributions to NATO as well as its pipeline deal with Russia.
Donald Trump and Theresa May's bilateral meeting had been marred by reports of criticism he leveled against her in the British press. Trump affirmed that both countries enjoyed the "highest level" of closeness.
In an interview with a UK tabloid, Trump said Brexit negotiations were "too slow," but denied criticizing May. The interview was published just hours before a scheduled lunch with May and tea with Queen Elizabeth.
