President Trump shut down a reporter who questioned his “brash personality” during a press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday.
During Trump’s first press conference with a foreign leader, a British reporter — Tom Newton Dunn from the Sun — asked Trump how he, “a brash TV extrovert,” could find anything in common with May.

“I’m not as brash as you might think,” Trump responded. “I’m a people person and I think you are too, Theresa. I think were going to have a fantastic relationship.”
When the reporter asked about Trump’s “changing position,” Trump said he predicted that Brexit would happen.
“I think Brexit is going to be a wonderful thing for your country,” he said. “You’re going to have your own identity and you’re going to be able to make your own trade deals without having someone watching you. I think Brexit will go down as being a tremendous thing for the United Kingdom.”
“It will be a tremendous asset, not a burden.”
