The US president had poured fuel on Britain's Brexit fire by criticizing Prime Minister Theresa May's proposals for leaving the European Union. But any differences between the pair were glossed over when they gave a joint news conference.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has warned MPs to approve her Brexit deal on the third attempt or face delays in leaving the EU. One of her ministers says a "significant number" of colleagues now support the plan.
Tom Watson, the opposition Labour deputy will be his party's only leading light on the second People's Vote march in London. The rally has gathered cross-party support as the prime minister offers to talk to MPs.
Leaders of EU states are willing to push the Brexit date to May 22, just ahead of European elections, according to a draft statement. This still hinges on the UK Parliament accepting Theresa May's Withdrawal Agreement.
With just 15 days to go until the UK is due to leave the EU, British lawmakers have voted to delay Brexit by at least three months. EU leaders will have the final say, with many demanding a clear reason from London.
